Outer Space #20 - Steve Ditko art


Outer Space v1 #20, 1958 - Steve Ditko contributed three stories, his last for this Charlton science-fiction title. Two are mildly interesting, I admit, even with their flat, simplistically graphic approach. Of the three, Ditko seems to put more effort into "The Greater Jovians", a tale of planetary famine. The artist cleverly uses full pages and insets to reinforce the theme of relative scale (see interior page below). This is number 3 of 5 Outer Space issues with Ditko art and/or covers.

  1. Any idea who drew the cover? Figure looks too good to be Ditko.
