Early Wood-Frank Buck-1950

Although this early 1950 story retains a decidedly amateurish quality, one can definitely see the quickly developing style that would reach an early peak in just a couple of years at EC. Note the experiments with lighting faces as well as an appearance of Woody's trademark skulls on the next to last page. Did he have help on this early Avon story? Orlando? Harrison?

  1. Wow! I hope there was a deadline involved, or maybe he just did the layouts? Anyway, very interesting to see Wood "in the rough". Definitely a far cry from the quality he was about to unleash later that decade.
