Popular Teen-Agers #14 - Wally Wood art


Popular Teen-Agers v1 #14, 1952 - Through her insults and selfish actions, a self-described 'fiery redhead" terrorizes her small community until a newly arrived man puts her in her place. There's plenty of cringe-worthy scenes in this 1950s romance comic, starting with opening spanking panel. Artistically, Wally Wood's drawings are far from polished. There is an emerging style, however, that would later become hallmarks. Dramatic lighting and contrasts are used throughout, which distinguishes the tale from the rest of the book.  Other artists in this issue include Ken Battefield. Cover by L.B. Cole. This is number 1 of 2 Popular Teen-Agers issues with Wood art and/or covers (not including reprints).
