Legion of Super-Heroes v2 #272 - Steve Ditko art


Legion of Super-Heroes v2 #272, 1981 - While applying to become a Legionnaire, the indestructible Blok recounts his origins and initial mistake in joining the League of Super Assassins. While certain pages are better than others (see interior page below), overall Steve Ditko does a credible job with the imagery. Some of the appeal can be attributed to inker Frank Chiaramonte, who occasionally mimics the style of Wally Wood and Wayne Howard. Other artists in this issue include Carmine Infantino, Jimmy Janes and Dick Giordano (cover). This is number 3 of 6 Legion of Super-Heroes issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Legion of Super-Heroes issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
