Jungle Jim v4 #22 - Steve Ditko / Wally Wood art & cover, Wally Wood art

Steve Ditko / Wally Wood
Jungle Jim v4 #22, 1969 - Wally Wood did a cover for the series only two years prior, but this issue showcases much more of his storytelling skills. His drawings and figures from this era can be a bit stiff, but his inking adds volume and dimension. Of his three stories, the third is the strongest primarily due to Steve Ditko's penciling. The layouts and drawings are generally more fluid, and additionally benefit from Wood's sensitive finishes. The cover is enlarged from a Ditko/Wood interior panel and reproduces much better than expected. This is number 2 of 3 Jungle Jim issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 1 of 3 Jungle Jim issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood, Ditko or Jungle Jim issues.
