Dark Mysteries #2 - Wally Wood cover

Wally Wood
Dark Mysteries v1 #2, 1951 - With an enormous skull as a backdrop, legions of winged creatures swarm around a young boy. A copy of this same issue is stuffed in his coat pocket. Wally Wood's second cover on the series is even better than his first. Busy without seeming chaotic, the layout is clear and manageable. Wood's excellent pencils are reinforced by Joe Orlando's sensitively applied shading. Other artists in this issue include Lou Cameron. This is number 2 of 2 Dark Mysteries issues with Wood art and/or covers.
