Police Lineup #1 - Wally Wood art & cover

Wally Wood
Police Lineup v1 #1, 1951 - Crime comics were at their most violent in the early 1950s, but the contents of this issue still seem mild by comparison. Although there are scenes of mass shootings and bodies in cement barrels, other publishers reveled in much gorier scenarios. Wally Wood illustrates the mug shots on the cover, aside a pulp fiction-style painting. Even better is his luscious black and white artwork for the inside front cover (see interior page below). His montage of crime scenes serves as a teaser for the interior stories. Wood's superb inking is augmented by his masterful use of mid-tones. This is number 1 of 1 Police Lineup issues with Wood art and/or covers.
