Alarming Tales #6 - Al Williamson art

Alarming Tales v1 #6, 1958 - A plantation in the tropics is attacked by coastal pirates. The resident scientist and an ex-army officer gather weapons, but not before one of them is accidentally doused with strange chemicals. This tale of a incredible shrinking man is ably drawn by Al Williamson. The first two pages are well crafted but the artwork diminishes from there. Angelo Torres provides the inks, though it appears he may have pencilled a few panels as well. Other artists in this issue include Paul Reinman, Fred Kida, Norman Nodel, Bernard Baily and John Severin (cover). This is number 2 of 2 Alarming Tales issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Alarming Tales issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
