Mysteries of Unexplored Worlds v1 #10, 1958 - Four Steve Ditko stories reside in this single issue. Each is similar in drawing style, while differing slightly in approach. "The Strange One'' seems to show little effort, while ''Forbidden Planet'' is more purposely crafted. Two other tales are longer and incorporate the series host directly into the layouts (see interior page below). All four pale in comparison, however, to Ditko's excellent cover. A local man traverses the swamp, encountering a weird structure rising from the water. A light blue silhouetted tree frames the superbly detailed scene. This is number 8 of 16 Mysteries of Unexplored Worlds issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Mysteries of Unexplored Worlds issues.
