World of Suspense #3 - Al Williamson art


World of Suspense v1 #3, 1956 - Scientists herald the return of their spacecraft, only to find it occupied by a strangely-hued pilot. Al Williamson's brushwork on the first two pages is too loosely applied and lacks adequate definition. On page two, the faces look especially hurried and the layout poorly planned. The remaining pages tighten up ever so slightly, with some fine textural effects on page three. Normally a standard bearer of science fiction art, Williamson turns in a less than stellar effort this issue. Other artists in this issue include Jack Abel, Bob Forgione, Ed Winiarski and Carl Burgos (cover). This is number 1 of 2 World of Suspense issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or World of Suspense issues. See also this blog's Williamson checklist.
