E-Man #4 - Steve Ditko art


E-Man v1 #4, 1973 - Steve Ditko continues his Killjoy backup tales, a blend of humor and superhero genres. As in the previous issue, his panels are small, numerous and border on crowded at times. The most visually interesting pages feature the silent fight sequences (see interior page below). Killjoy and a flexible thief named the Snake are choreographed in Ditko's own unique style. Artist Joe Staton continues on the E-man cover and main feature. This is number 2 of 3 E-Man issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or E-man issues.
