Black Fury #18 - Steve Ditko art

Black Fury v1 #18, 1958 - Steve Ditko contributes two tales to his final issue of this western series. The artist renders Black Fury in an intriguing graphic style, but other visual elements seem to be lacking. The first story is an especially low effort, with just the bare minimum of detail. "Strange Country", his second tale, begins much the same way with a first panel nearly devoid of background detail. The art gets progressively better with on the next three pages, combining thin strokes and black shapes to good effect. This is number 3 of 3 Black Fury issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Black Fury issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
