Beware the Creeper v1 #5, 1969 - The ongoing struggle between Proteus and the Creeper comes to a dramatic cliffhanger. For the first time in the series, Steve Ditko's pencils are inked by another artist, in this case Mike Peppe. Although he brings a softer, more realistic approach, the original drawings retain much of their distinctiveness. By comparison, the all-Ditko cover is more stark, serious and graphically rendered. Most noteworthy is the textural brushwork, painstakingly applied to simulate rainwater. This is number 5 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.
