Unknown Worlds #45 - non-attributed Steve Ditko art


Unknown Worlds v1 #45, 1967 - A soldier's ghostly ancestor comes to his aid, repelling the Nazis during World War Two. Though Sal Trapani's name appears in the title panel, closer inspection of the story artwork reveals Steve Ditko's uncredited and non-attributed pencils. The artist's style is evident throughout, including the figures on page one panel four, page two panel five and page five panel seven. Even so, the art as a whole is disappointingly mediocre, possibly contributing to the oversight in comic guides. Other artists in this issue include Hy Eisman, Bob Jenney and Kurt Shaffenberger (cover). This is number 1 of 4 Unknown Worlds issues with Ditko art and/or covers.
