Two-Fisted Tales #33 - Wally Wood art & cover, Joe Kubert art

Wally Wood
Two-Fisted Tales v1 #33, 1953 - Wally Wood opens with a stunning cover, capturing a heroic signal corpsman under fire. Inside, the artist tells of the bombing of Nagasaki and its effects on one Japanese family. Wood's brushwork throughout is exceptional, using textural effects for atmospheric purposes. Scenes of the actual bomb blast are visualized in sobering black and white. In Joe Kubert's tale, two men partner up for some dangerous pearl diving off the Australian coast. In keeping with EC's standards, the artwork seems realistic and well-researched. Other artists in this issue include Jack Davis and John Severin. This is number 15 of 18 Two-Fisted Tales issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Two-Fisted Tales issues with Kubert art and/or covers.
