Kull #15 - Mike Ploog art, Steve Ditko reprint

Kull the Destroyer v1 #15, 1974 - In Mike Ploog's final issue of Kull, there is little semblance of his original artwork. Inker Ernie Chua buries the pencils under his own relentlessly mediocre style. The look and feel of the grotesque "night creature" is perhaps the only indication of Ploog's contribution. The art is unfortunately a far cry from the artist's initial start on the series. On the positive side, the issue does include a passable reprint from Strange Tales #94 by Steve Ditko. Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane/Tom Palmer (cover). This is number 5 of 5 Kull issues with Ploog art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko, Ploog or Kull issues.

  1. Poor Ernie. I liked his inks on Hulk and Conan. Painterly Palmer inks on the cover.
