Hawk and the Dove v1 #1, 1968 - After premiering in Showcase #75, this pair of super-hero brothers quickly graduate to their own self-titled series. Steve Ditko's cover juxtaposes the duo's competing tendencies of aggression and passivity. Inside, his artwork is enthusiastic and skillfully drawn throughout. Among the many highlights: a dynamic three panel triptych that includes a montage of scenes in the backgrounds (pages 13-14). This issue is simply one of Ditko's finest works of the 1960s. This is number 1 of 2 Hawk and the Dove issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Hawk and the Dove issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
