Aces High #4 - Wally Wood art

Aces High v1 #4, 1955 - Brimming with self-confidence, a new kid joins the squadron and subsequently goes up against the most feared German fighter pilot. Wally Wood's inking glides over his pencils, sensitively adding detail and definition. His keen distribution of light and dark is reinforced by careful application of grey tints. As good as Wood's previous issues are, this story of novices and veterans is his best yet on the series. This story was later reprinted in Aces High v2 #4. Other artists in this issue include Bernard Krigstein, Jack Davis and George Evans. This is number 4 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.
