Journey Into Unknown Worlds #51 - Wally Wood, Steve Ditko art

Journey Into Unknown Worlds #51
Journey Into Unknown Worlds v1 #51, 1956 - There seems to be an underlying religious theme to Wally Wood's tale, centered around a town on the verge of a great flood. The artist's clever use of light and shadow dramatizes the event. Most pages depict scenes of torrential rain, adding another layer of complexity. Steve Ditko illustrates the tale of a man realizing that he's not native to Earth. Should he stay or should he return to his home planet? Expertly paced and designed, the scenes are speckled with blustery leaves, a metaphor perhaps, for the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one. Other artists in this Atlas golden age science fiction comic include John Severin. This is number 1 of 1 Journey Into Unknown Worlds issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Journey Into Unknown Worlds issues with Ditko art and/or covers.
