Shock Suspenstories #4 - Wally Wood art & cover

Wally Wood
Shock Suspenstories v1 #4, 1952 - Wally Wood's cover captures the moment of impact when a car strikes a pedestrian. The driver's agonized face and the woman's ghostly reflection add to this disturbing scene. Wood's coinciding story tells of a man unjustly accused of a hit-and-run. Driven by details, the artwork in many scenes is heavy and confining (see interior page below). Additional emphasis on facial expressions creates a gritty realism not often seen in comics. Other artists in this issue include Jack Davis, Jack Kamen and Joe Orlando. This is number 3 of 14 Shock Suspenstories issues with Wood art and/or covers.
