Hercules Unbound #5 - Wally Wood art


Hercules Unbound v1 #5, 1976 - Amidst the London ruins, Hercules battles the mutant dictator Hunter Blood. J.L. Garcia Lopez delivers his most dramatic splash page yet (see interior page below), followed by an electrifying two-page spread. Wally Wood's inks smooth out the rougher edges, making the artwork all the more appealing. Smaller panels tend to dominate the remaining pages, but Wood's steady hand is evident in every panel. This is number 5 of 8 Hercules Unbound issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Hercules Unbound issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
