Secrets of Haunted House #9 - Steve Ditko art

Secrets of Haunted House v1 #9, 1977 - A ghost seeks out the man to drove him to suicide in this bronze age Steve Ditko tale. The pages abound with a variety of patterns, including the characters' clothing, home furnishings and backgrounds. Line-heavy shading techniques add to the overall expressionistic feel. Coincidentally, the art resembles some of Ditko's better efforts at Charlton Comics. Other artists in this issue include Bob Smith, Rubeny, Romeo Tanghal and Luis Domingez (cover). This is number 1 of 4 Secrets of Haunted House issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Secrets of Haunted House issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
