Alien Worlds #8 - non-attributed Al Williamson art

Alien Worlds v1 #8, 1982 - In this touching short story by science fiction writer William F. Nolan, a dying astronaut heads home to see his parents for the last time. Al Williamson's scenes of spaceship travel are heavily inked, suggesting the cold loneliness of space. These are contrasted with lighter, optimistic panels interspersed throughout the story. Devoid of battles or action scenes, Williamson focuses on the interaction of characters. Other artists in this issue include Paul Rivoche, Rand Holmes and Ken Steacy. This is number 3 of 3 Alien Worlds issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or Alien Worlds issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
