Weird Science v2 #21 - Wally Wood art & cover, Al Williamson / Frank Frazetta art

Wally Wood
Weird Science v2 #21, 1953 - Surviving a crash on a remote planet, a spaceman finds companionship in a beautiful, yet primitive woman. Despite plenty of text and dialogue, Al Williamson makes the most of the confined spaces. Frank Frazetta's inks add superb texture and detail, especially on the opening splash. Wally Wood's cover is excellent , but bears no relation to his interior story. “EC Confidential" is a self-referential tale, using the publisher's staff as story characters. Wood's artwork is terrific, despite the heavy dialogue. Most of his effort goes into the opening splash, where a careening plane flies over Times Square (see interior page below). There is an exceptional amount of detail absent from the rest of the story. Other artists in this issue include Jack Kamen and Joe Orlando. This is number 19 of 20 Weird Science issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 7 of 8 Weird Science issues with Williamson art and/or covers.
