First Dick Giordano art?
Dick Giordano (1932-2010) was 20 years old when he illustrated this Bruce Crandall story, "Secret of the Locked Laboratory", in the first issue of Charlton's science fiction magazine, Fantastic Science Fiction
(August 1952), edited by Walter Gibson with Al Fago as art director. Leaving the High School of Industrial Art, Giordano inked backgrounds for nine months at the S.M. Iger Studio before connecting with Charlton in 1952.
Possibly this was the first art to appear under his signature. The story had several other Giordano illustrations.
