Journey Into Mystery #54 - Al Williamson, Steve Ditko art, Jack Kirby cover

Jack Kirby
Journey Into Mystery v1 #54, 1957 - This bombastic cover by Jack Kirby is typical of his silver age monster comics. As odd looking as the creature is, it bears no resemblance to the inside story. Al Williamson's realistic sci-fi story features his own costume and architecture designs whereas Ditko's expressionistic approach gives his story a friendliness and approachability. Their styles contrast greatly, and yet both have their artistic merits. This is number 4 of 4 Journey Into Mystery issues with Williamson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby, Ditko, Williamson or Journey Into Mystery issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist, Williamson checklist or Ditko checklist.
