Tales of the Mysterious Traveler #5 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
Tales of the Mysterious Traveler v1 #5, 1957 - The multi-paneled approach on the cover is less impactful than perhaps other issues, but Steve Ditko's draftsmanship is superb. The series host is the focal point, appropriately enough, rendered with greater effort and detail. The artist's three interior tales are carefully and purposefully drawn. The last one, "The Sultan", stands out perhaps a tad more due to its exotic costumes, theme and locale. This is number 4 of 11 Tales of the Mysterious Traveler issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints).
