Uncanny Tales #51 - Al Williamson art


Uncanny Tales v1 #51, 1957 - A scientist has recurring nightmares of extreme size reduction, leading him to believe he's losing his mind. Some of Al Williamson's perspectives and proportions are off, but his moody drawings help compensate. His large, amorphous opening panel sets the tone perfectly. The artist inks his own pencils according to some sources, but it looks more likely done by Ralph Mayo. The fine linework on the faces matches stylistically with other collaborations between the two. This story was later reprinted in the book Al Williamson Forbidden Worlds. Other artists in this issue include John Forte, Gary Morrow and Bill Everett (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Uncanny Tales issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Uncanny Tales issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
