History of Al Williamson in Comic Book Art

Al Williamson began studying comic drawing by taking art classes from Burne Hogarth, the man who popularized the Tarzan comic strip throughout the thirties and forties. Williamson went on to attend Hogarth's Cartoonist and Illustrators School.

His first published work was providing illustrations in Famous Funnies #166 for a story called "The World's Ugliest Horse" in 1948. From 1949-1951 Williamson provided artwork for American Comics Groups, Avon Publications, Fawcett Comics and Standard Comics, specifically in the genres of western and science-fiction. He frequently collaborated with fellow artist Frank Frazetta, who inked much of his pencil work.

Williamson began working for EC Comics in 1952, where he worked primarily on Weird Science and Weird Fantasy. He would occasionally draw for some of their crime and suspense titles as well. From there, he moved over to Atlas Comics, the predecessor to Marvel Comics, where he produced more than 400 three-to-five page stories for the publisher between 1955 and 1957.

Some of Williamson's finest work can be seen in stories like, "The City that Time Forgot" in Marvel Tales #144, and "Menace from the Stars" in Mystery Tales #44, both published in 1956. After his prolific period with Atlas, Williamson began inking for Jack Kirby, who was working for Harvey Comics at the time, in 1957.

By 1960, there was a slump in the industry. Williamson moved to Mexico to take a hiatus from the business and stayed there until his return in 1965, where took a job drawing for Gold Key Comics. He worked on titles like Ripley's Believe it or Not #1 and The Twilight Zone #12, as well as working on their horror series such as Eerie and Creepy.

Williamson also helped assemble the first book of the collected works of Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon, a character that Williamson had long since been a fan of before entering the industry professionally. He would later go on to illustrate a comic book version of Dino De Laurentiis' adaptation film, Flash Gordon.

In the 1980s and 90s, Williamson drew much of the cover art for both Marvel's Star Wars adaptation of Return of the Jedi and Dark Horse Comics Classic Star Wars series.

By the late eighties and for much of the nineties, Williamson focused primarily on inking for some of the greatest artists of that generation, including John Buscema and Mike Mignola.

During that era Williamson won nine industry awards for best inker, as well as many others such an Alley Award for Best Penciller and numerous Harvey Awards.
