Al Williamson, 1932-2010

Williamson was one of the first illustrators hired by EC Comics in the early 1950s, but most people know him from his artwork on Flash Gordon. Myself, I loved the covers he did for EC's Shock Stories ands Weird Science. And, this photo I posted on Facebook, the b&w shot of a creator sitting at his desk never gets old. Author photos with people snarling like zombies or looking like pretentious drunks are pretty common and totally ridiculous.
