Jiggs and Maggie #16 - Wally Wood art

Jiggs and Maggie #16
Jiggs and Maggie v1 #16, 1950 - Created by George McManus, this colorful married couple makes the transition from newspapers to comic books. Wally Wood's sole contribution to this issue are two text illustrations for a two-page text story. The drawings are small, but the artist's style is immediately recognizable. Like most of his early works, the artwork is fairly unpolished, almost primitive. Other artists in this Standard golden age humor comic include George McManus. This is number 1 of 1 Jiggs and Maggie issues with Wood art and/or covers.
