Gorgo #11 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Gorgo v1 #11 charlton monster comic book cover art by Steve DitkoGorgo v1 #11 charlton monster comic book page art by Steve Ditko
Gorgo v1 #11, 1963 - Steve Ditko continues his terrific run on this series, as the massive Gorgo becomes the focus of a Hollywood filmmaker. The art is splendid, bordering on comic, especially in the rendition of the title character. Ditko's roomier panels (see interior page above) attract more attention, but his work overall is admirable and sincere. One minor annoyance is the re-use of two interior scenes for the cover. This is number 5 of 9 Gorgo issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Gorgo issues.
