Tales of the Mysterious Traveler #7 - Steve Ditko art


Tales of the Mysterious Traveler v1 #7, 1958 - Steve Ditko contributes multiple stories in this issue. In the first, an Australian rancher discovers a odd little creature that makes the Aboriginal natives extremely fearful. The second tells of a young man's unbelievable good luck and it sunforseen consequences (curiosly, the last panel is drawn by someone else). Both stories seem hurriedly drawn with less effort. With the exception of the first panel, Ditko's third tale of a charltan medicine salesman stands out due to its carefully constructed layouts and thoughtful pacing. The second story was later reprinted in Tales of the Mysterious Traveler #14. This is number 6 of 11 Tales of the Mysterious Traveler issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Ditko or Tales of the Mysterious Traveler issues.
