Wally Wood is one of the undeniable masters of comic book art.
His striking and powerful work grabs your attention from the first moment you see it,
and once you've seen it, you'll never look at comics the same way again.
Since his earliest days in comics Wally Wood has impressed and inspired legions of artists, myself included. His unmatched proficiency with handling light and dark forms has set the standard for comic book chiaroscuro. Compared to most of his contemporaries, Wood's art didn't just fill panels with run of the mill images. No, the world he created was more real than anything else seen in comics, his characters were three-dimensional, alive! His comic stories had the ability to transport you to a magical realm where the impossible became reality.
It is then with great pleasure I present to you one of the premiere science fiction artists ever to draw in comics, with a story presented in one of the greatest issues of one of the most celebrated science fiction comics ever produced. Written by the equally influential Al Feldstein, (and colored by Marie Severin) for EC Comics WEIRD SCIENCE # 16, 1952, the story is titled "DOWN TO EARTH!", and features fantastic flying saucers and disgusting alien creatures as only Wood could envision them.
Oh, yes, before I forget, I have a bonus treat for you.
While the color version of the comic is presented here, over at
I have Wood's original art, displayed in all it's glorious detail,
which is a must see, I must say!
