Frontline Combat #10 - Wally Wood art

Frontline Combat v1 #10, 1953 - The onset of war leaves a Korean child amidst the ruins of his own home. Judging by the architecture and decorative motifs, Wally Wood appears to have researched the culture and setting. A toddler is the main character, but his rendition seems too light-hearted given the circumstances. Most impressive are the scenes of the bombings' aftermath. Wood captures the devastation in excruciating detail. Other artists in this issue include George Evans, Jack Davis and John Severin. This is number 9 of 13 Frontline Combat issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood or Frontline Combat issues. See also this blog's Wood checklist.
