Weird Science-Fantasy #28 - Al Williamson, Wally Wood art

Weird Science-Fantasy v1 #28 ec comic book cover art by Al Feldstein
Weird Science-Fantasy v1 #28, 1955 - Finding an advanced civilization in ruins, spacemen from Earth pore through their records to determine the cause. Despite the numerous panels and large amount of dialogue, Wally Wood still delivers artwork that's carefully and expertly crafted. Technology and machinery abound in many of the panels. Wood's creative visualizations match the complexity of the story. Al Williamson illustrates the tale of a despondent young woman on a distant planet. Pining for her lover on Earth, she procures a spaceship for a million mile journey. Alien landscapes and futuristic buildings are plentiful and lovingly drawn. Like many Williamson stories, details are abundant and in many cases add an opulence to certain settings. Other artists in this issue include Joe Orlando, Jack Kamen, Reed Crandall and Al Feldstein (cover). This is number 4 of 5 Weird Science-Fantasy issues with Williamson art and/or covers and number 6 of 7 Weird Science-Fantasy issues with Wood art and/or covers.
