Beware the Creeper v1 #2, 1968 - The criminal activities of Proteus, a master of disguise, runs afoul of the Creeper. Steve Ditko's second issue continues with the same artistic verve as the first. The hero's agility and acrobatics are amply displayed in the numerous fight scenes, each choreographed with dynamism and grace. The artist humorously attempts to integrate a DC billboard into the storyline (page 21) but falls flat. That aside, the majority of pages are passionately drawn and detailed, including Ditko's superbly nightmarish cover. This is number 2 of 6 Beware the Creeper issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Beware the Creeper issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
