Showcase v1 #73 featuring Beware the Creeper, 1968 - Created by Steve Ditko, the Creeper makes his first appearance. The cover is unusually text heavy, with typography somewhat competing with the main figure. Inside, the hero's origin story is told, along with his creation of a strange costume. Ditko's opening splash sets a dramatic tone with its bold layout and linework. Subsequent pages are competently drawn, some more crowded than others. Thankfully, large panels toward the end allow more room for the Creeper's acrobatic fight scenes. This story was later reprinted in Detective Comics #443. This is number 1 of 2 Showcase issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko, Showcase or Beware the Creeper issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
