The World Around Us #19 / The Jungle - Al Williamson art


The World Around Us v1 #15 / The Illustrated Story of The Jungle, 1960 - The life of David Livingstone is vividly captured by artist Al Williamson. This is his third and last effort on the series, while also his longest. The dense jungles and open savannas are both drawn with great care. Spacious panels allow room for a variety of exotic animals, including a lion attack (see interior page below). Williamson's often straightforward pencils are generally reinforced by inker Reed Crandall. This story was later reprinted in the book Al Williamson Forbidden Worlds. Other artists in this issue include Gray Morrow. This is number 3 of 3 World Around Us issues with Williamson art and/or covers.

  1. I believe the credits are reversed; these are definitely Crandall pencils.
