Outer Space v1 #21, 1959 - Despite the annoying size and placement of a contest graphic, Steve Ditko delivers a more than capable science fiction cover. Human captives are tethered to a small spacecraft, while an alien ship looms in the distance. The diminishment of the figures nicely form the perspective, leading the eye toward the background. Inside, a Matt Baker story tells of a young scientist whose work helps avoid a nuclear war. Sadly, the artist's style is only partially recognizable due to Vince Colletta's insensitive inking. Like some Baker works of the same period, his contribution is uncredited and mostly unattributed. Other artists in this issue include Sal Trapani and E. H. Hart. This is number 4 of 5 Outer Space issues with Ditko art and/or covers.
