The World Around Us #15 / Prehistoric Animals - Al Williamson art


The World Around Us v1 #15 / The Illustrated Story of Prehistoric Animals, 1960 - Al Williamson draws two tales from pre-history, covering the decline of dinosaurs and the subsequent rise of mammals. Clear and informative, the artwork also shows plenty of depth and detail. Page 2 and 4 (see interior page above) are particularly good, perhaps due to their larger panel sizes. This is the first of three issues that Williamson did on this educational series. Other artists in this issue include Gray Morrow, George Evans, Reed Crandall, Sam Glanzman and Norman Nodel. This is number 1 of 3 World Around Us issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Williamson or World Around Us issues. See also this blog's Al Williamson checklist.
