Somerset Holmes #2 - Al Williamson art


Somerset Holmes v1 #2, 1983 - Continuing the serial at the back of the book, adventurer Cliff Hanger and scientist Jill Masterson traverse the Amazon jungle in search of her father. Lovingly drawn and detailed, Al Williamson's artwork reveals an experienced hand. His renditions of South American flora seem well researched. Most impressive are the flash flooding scenes, moving quickly across pages 2-3. Other artists in this issue include Brent Anderson. This is number 2 of 6 Somerset Holmes issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Somerset Holmes issues. See also this blog's Al Williamson checklist.

  1. Nice cover- looks like a pulp fiction jacket. A headlight cover?
