Showcase #75 / Hawk and the Dove - Steve Ditko art & cover

Showcase v1 #75 Hawk and the Dove dc comic book cover art by Steve Ditko
Steve Ditko
Showcase v1 #75 featuring Hawk and the Dove, 1968 - Two brothers join forces to fight injustice as a costumed duo. One advocates aggression and the other non-violence in one of Steve Ditko's most original creations. The carefully sequenced cover is quite tame, especially when compared to the interiors. Ditko's artwork is extraordinary, full of dynamically arranged layouts and passionate drawings. The explosive panel on page 5 (see interior page below), the duo's heroic debut (pages 13-17) and other scenes collectively result in a masterpiece. This is Ditko at his finest. This is number 2 of 2 Showcase issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko, Showcase or Hawk and the Dove issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
