The Return of the Werewolf

Happy Leap Year... and I hope everyone had a fantastic February. As this month winds down it's time for a very different, gorgeously illustrated kind of werewolf tale today. Notice that the signature in the opening splash panel says “Harold Williams.” GCD lists the actual pencils here came from EC legend Al Williamson using a pseudonym.

From the Feb-March 1951 issue of Out of the Night #1










To see more Al Williamson ACG horror check the Friday, February 29, 2008 post at The Golden Age Comic Book Stories Blog for Demon of Destruction! It's a tremendous story co-created with Frank Frazetta!

Coming Next in March:

We’re kicking off the new month tomorrow with a full week of blood sucking, stake hating, garlic loathing, mirror rejecting vampire stories! So strap on your crucifixes and say your prayers people because first up comes The King of them all--- DRACULA! It’s an epic, four part, 3 day story you von’t vant to miss!

Absolutely gorgeous artwork by Williamson. His style is unmistakable. Although I love his artwork, his style is a bit clinical and emotionless---it distances one a bit from the horror storyline. I feel his artwork is best suited for science fiction (which EC cleverly knew when they had him mostly illustrate their sci fi mags).

I disagree with A. Nonny Moose's whole clinical & emotionless thing.

I enjoyed the heck outta the Williamson artwork on this one and would only say that perhaps the central characters were a bit too understated - - - what with a bugnuts-lycan lurking about, and all.

That was a clever way to rid themselves of the menace though.

I AGREE WITH CHUCK AND TOTALLY LOVED THIS POST. CERTAIN ELEMENTS OF THE ART REMIND ME ALOT OF FRAZETTA TOO. AND A WEREWOLF COMING BACK FOR IT'S SKIN IS JUST SUCH A WILD IDEA.

I was going to request a werewolf tale and you delivered one that is well above and beyond all my expectations, thanks Karswell! Al Williamson is one of my favorites, and as a previous commentor stated I too am a HUGE fan of his SF work at EC, it's amazing to see that his work here outside of EC is still up to par with anything they published.

And you are posting a Dracula story tomorrow now too! Please tell me this is the Avon Eerie version.

Karswell said...

>Please tell me this is the Avon Eerie version.

Aye, that be the one indeed! I'm glad to hear everyone is enjoying today's Williamson post too. And aside from the Eerie Dracula posts that kick off Vampire Week tomorrow I have some other great stuff lined up from Colan, Crandall, Maneely, Nostrand etc...

Karswell,

Thanks for posting this great story! Williamson is another of my all time favorites (along with the rest of The Fleagles)and I've always admired his early work at ACG...interesting to note on this story, though not credited, little known comic artist Harold LeDoux assisted with the inks.(Verified by Williamson)

Wow, what a wild WW tale! The skinless wolfman reclaiming his pelt, the sedative used to fool the pack... I'm amazed this one wasn't adapted by Naschy...

Gotta be one of the gabbiest lycanthropes I've ever seen, though. Plus, the first with a prehensile tail. Attack of the Were-Monkey! I loved the way the lettering styles changed as well.

See, this kind of crap is why I don't date gypsy chicks.

I agree that Williamson's couples all looked similar,but in a good way,and there's just no complaining about his art on this story!.i also was surprised by the plot,fits in with real Werewolf lore where you transformed using a pelt.

>comic artist Harold LeDoux assisted with the inks

Thanks for that bit of info Mr Door Tree. And for those who haven't made it over to The Golden Age Comicbook Stories blog today please do so to see more Williamson:

Great observation Vic! Lettering is an artform that sometimes tends to get overlooked, especially when placed next to Williamson art! Anyone know if Uncle Al lettered this tale himself too?
