Ghosts #111 - Steve Ditko art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Ghosts v1 #111, 1982 - Joe Kubert's intense cover of a man who could actualize his thoughts is markedly superior to the story (not by Kubert). In another tale, a mouse's ghost seeks revenge on his human killer in this tongue-in-cheek story. Steve Ditko does his best with the imagery, which improves as the tale progresses. Especially noteworthy is the rodent's transformation into something much more menacing (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Keith Giffen, Gary Martin and Mark Texeira. This is number 6 of 6 Ghosts issues with Kubert art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Ghosts issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Ghosts issues.

  1. this comic is definitely from the 80's, you can tell by the DC logo and the $0.60 cover price. Other than this mistaje, you all are providing an essential resource here, thank you so much.
