Eerie v3 #5 - Frank Frazetta cover, Steve Ditko, Al Williamson, Wally Wood art

Frank Frazetta
Eerie v3 #5, 1966 - Frank Frazetta opens with a less dynamic cover than his usual output. Similarly, Wally Wood's inside front cover portrait of the Mummy just falls short of his usual standards. On the plus side, Al Williamson's tale set in the Amazon jungle is striking in its draftsmanship and detail. Fine cross-hatching and screens add a richness often present in his finest works. A rogue sorcerer brings an ancient beauty back to life in Steve Ditko's 8-pager. Delicately applied washes augment his own pencils, a technique he often used in his Warren assignments. Wood's single page was later reprinted in Eerie v3 #14. and the Williamson tale appeared in >Eerie v3 #18. Other artists in this issue include Angelo Torres and Gene ColanThis is number 1 of 3 Eerie issues with Wood art and/or covers, number 2 of 2 Eerie issues with Williamson art and/or covers, number 3 of 7 Eerie issues with Frazetta art and/or covers number 3 of 8 Eerie magazine issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints).
