D-Day #2 - Wally Wood art


D-Day v1 #2, 1964 - Wally Wood rarely drew for Charlton comics, making this issue a standout. The artist contributes four stories, although they seem to vary both in quality and execution. Assuming Wood had various assistants working for him, his hand is less evident in "D-Day for the Fighting Airborne", "Iwo Jima" and "Underwater Avenger". The latter looks especially poor by comparison. The first story ("Lone Defender") is the most successful, with its superb detailing and draftsmanship throughout (see interior page shown below). This is number 1 of 1 D-Day issues with Wood art and/or covers. Other artists in this issue include Sam Glanzman and Dick Giordano.
