Strange Fantasy #9 - Steve Ditko art


Strange Fantasy v1 #9, 1953 - One of his earliest professional works, Steve Ditko lends a hand on this odd little horror story. A young boy's hair begins to have a life of its own, and upon reaching manhood is instilled with a voracious appetite for flesh. As ridiculous as it sounds, these themes were fairly common during this era. Originally attributed as a solo piece, several sources now indicate that Ditko assisted another artist, possibly Seymour Moskowitz. The bottom of page one shows a faint "SS" signature, which could possibly be initials for the artists' first names (?). At any rate, the art is painfully mediocre and unfortunately bears no resemblance to Ditko's early style. This is number 1 of 1 Strange Fantasy issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Strange Fantasy issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
