Shock Suspenstories #6 - Wally Wood art & cover

Shock Suspenstories #6 EC comic book cover by Wally Wood circa 1950s
Wally Wood
Shock Suspenstories v1 #6, 1953 - Venturing into the woods at night, a reporter witnesses the brutal flaying of a woman by a hooded mob. In this obvious reference to the Klu Klux Klan, Wally Wood illustrates the tale with appropriate menace and severity. The woman's beauty and femininity seem to contrast directly against the brutality of her attackers. The story is powerfully drawn, but the artist's cover is even more so. The scene is lusciously detailed, from the ruffles of the victim's dress to the foliage in the background. This cover is among Wood's best work, regardless of decade. Other artists in this issue include Graham Ingels, Jack Kamen and Joe Orlando. This is number 5 of 14 Shock Suspenstories issues with Wood art and/or covers.
