What's the story here? Did Fritz take so long on his exquisite tryouts for this story that Wood had to step in and do his own version? As much as I love Wood, his stuff pales in comparison here.
The published Wood version came first, for EC comics in 1953. In 1954, The (Dreaded) Comics Code wiped out EC comics. Gaines was left with Mad Magazine and some picto fiction magazines, and Fritz was commissioned on this for a picto magazine. Unfortunately, the code wiped those out before Frazetta could finish, leaving only Mad, and this isn't a Mad-type story
