Hogan's Heroes #2 - Steve Ditko art


Hogan's Heroes v1 #2, 1966 - Steve Ditko's work for Dell Comics was few and far between, but he did manage two issues for this 1960s television-based series. Although his style would seem well suited for it, the artist clearly struggles with the genre. Sal Trapani's inks add some depth and modeling, to the benefit of the pencils, but also tends to suppress Ditko's own unique style. Of the three stories, "Mission Accomplished" is clumsiest in both pacing and layout. Like his Get Smart issues, Ditko strains in his attempt at adapting tv humor. This is number 1 of 2 Hogan's Heroes issues with Ditko art and/or covers.
