Robin Hood and his Merry Men #38 - Steve Ditko art

(The Glorious Days of) Robin Hood and his Merry Men v1 #38, 1958 - The Sheriff of Nottingham forces an attractive woman to lure Robin Hood into capture. Steve Ditko tries his hand at a medieval tale featuring a classic heroic figure. The artist's signature style is evident, particularly in the characters' faces, but certain forest scenes lack detail. Other panels are crowded, almost claustrophobic. While adequate, Ditko has shown more effort in other Charlton titles of the same era. This is number 1 of 1 Robin Hood and his Merry Men issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Robin Hood and his Merry Men issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
