Superboy #153 - Wally Wood art, Neal Adams cover

Neal Adams
Superboy v1 #153, 1969 - When the residents of Smallville disappear, Superboy discovers an alien enemy that operates at a molecular level. Wally Wood begins a lengthy run of issues, inking over Bob Brown’s pencils. While he has no control over layouts or pacing, his style is heavily imposed throughout the story. Shading and definition are sensitively applied on most pages. His work benefits the artwork as a whole, enhancing this and subsequent issues. Wood also inks two additional pages featuring Superboy’s hideouts (later reprinted in Best of DC #15). Neal Adams' cover is adequately drawn but poorly composed. This is number 1 of 8 Superboy issues with Wood art and/or covers.
