Comic Art

A detail from the Wallace Wood cover to Weird Science No 14, July–August 1952. The artistic team of Harry Harrison and Wallace Wood encouraged Gaines to publish the first ‘real’ science-fiction comics. EC added science fiction to their line with the May–June 1950 launch of the first issues of Weird Science and Weird Fantasy.


Wonder Woman and the Cheetah featured in a DC comic. While the Cheetah may not be the most popular cat woman DC Comics has been responsible for, her high-profile appearance in the “Wonder Woman” sequel has a chance to earn her a whole new generation of fans.
