The Saint

It's a shame he didn't do the art inside the book itself (newspaper strip reprints, possibly by John Spranger or Mike Roy) but here's vintage Wood illustrating the inside front cover from Avon's THE SAINT # 10 from 1951. Although still very early, his development here is miles ahead of similar stories from the same time period. Note the continued experimentation with the screening techniques that would become a trademark. (Sorry for the scanning error. Best I could do for some reason)
