Two-Fisted Tales #34 - Wally Wood art


Two-Fisted Tales v1 #34, 1953 - While residing in the Duke's castle, Sir Clyde Du Marchand stands accused of murder. Only a fight to the death against the duchy's best knight will prove his innocence. Wally Wood regales his readers with outstanding drawings. The opening banquet scenes are well-crafted and appropriately opulent. The decisive battle that follows is depicted in same-sized, repetitive panels (see interior page below). Wood uses the effect to slow down the pacing, suggesting the prolonged nature of two equally matched combatants. Other artists in this issue include Jack Davis, John Severin and George Evans. This is number 16 of 18 Two-Fisted Tales issues with Wood art and/or covers.
