Destructor #2 - Steve Ditko / Wally Wood art


The Destructor v1 #2, 1975 - Although lacking some of the larger panels of the previous issue, Steve Ditko and Wally Wood produce another fine effort on the series. The opening splash offers a bird's eye view of the Destructor, witnessing a mob transaction from above. Not particularly exciting, but competently composed. Some panels are more crowded than others, but the action scenes on pages 18-19 more than meet expectations. Other artists in this issue include Larry Lieber (cover). This is number 2 of 2 Destructor issues with Wood art and/or covers and number 2 of 4 Destructor issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood, Ditko or Destructor issues.
