Wally Wood’s Science Fiction Illustrations – 1957-1969

Filed under Found on the Web

Science Fiction Illustration by Wally Wood

Golden Age Comic Book Stories has posted a collection of Wally Wood’s science fiction magazine illustrations from 1957 through 1969.

Wood’s one of my favorites among the EC comics artists although I got to know his work later, through his work for the Warren magazines and for Marvel comics. It’s great to see these illustrations for Galaxy. They’re a real departure from his distinctive inking style: "Make everything black that should be black; then make some more stuff black that shouldn’t be black." (That’s my paraphrase, but I think it’s pretty close.)

While you’re there, don’t miss the recent Frank R. Paul and Big Little Books posts. Mister Doortree never disappoints.

Can anyone date this particular drawing? Does anyone know of other drawings with this particular spaceship?
There is a lovely paper model of this same ship – see my website, page Science Fiction.

The original article I linked to here dates this illustration at 1958.
