Aces High #3 - Wally Wood art


Aces High v1 #3, 1955 - Due to overwhelming guilt, an aspiring pilot decides to ground himself and become an airport mechanic instead. Wally Wood draws this tale of redemption with his usual skillfulness. Nearly every panel is well detailed, including views from high altitude. Most noteworthy is his opening panel, depicting a working airfield and the men tasked with keeping the machines aloft. Other artists in this issue include Bernard Krigstein, Jack Davis and George Evans. This is number 3 of 5 Aces High issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Aces High issues. See also this blog's Wally Wood checklist.
