House of Mystery #185 - Neal Adams cover, Al Williamson art

Neal Adams
House of Mystery v1 #185, 1970 - Making his way through a forgotten swamp, an escaped convict encounters deadly primeval reptiles and an evil priestess. This Al Williamson tale may have originally been intended for one of Warren's horror magazines. Regardless, the art is stunning in its detail and sophistication. Open and free-floating panels add depth to bold layouts, in turn enhancing Williamson's sharp, precision drawings. Some comic book guides credit story inks to Mike Kaluta, but I see no evidence of it. The same issue features a Wally Wood-esque story (drawn by imitator Wayne Howard) and a fine Neal Adams cover. This is number 11 of 26 House of Mystery issues with Adams art and/or covers, number 4 of 7 House of Mystery issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 House of Mystery issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
