Tower of Shadows #6 - Wally Wood art, Steve Ditko reprint


Tower of Shadows v1 #6, 1970 - This ongoing horror title begins to insert reprints to supplement the original material. The Wally Wood story pits the legendary Beowulf against a ghost-like creature. The artist's opening splash is a spacious view of a medieval castle. Despite the smallish panels that follow, Wood delivers a terrific tale of swords and sorcery. A Steve Ditko reprint from Strange Tales #78 rounds out the book. Other artists in this issue include Gene Colan, Tom Sutton, Dan Adkins and Marie Severin (cover). This is number 2 of 4 Tower of Shadows issues with Wood art and/or covers. See more Wood or Tower of Shadows issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist or Wood checklist.
