Out of This World v2 #4 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
Out of This World v2 #4, 1957 - Steve Ditko's cleverly bisected cover defines the real world from an inter-dimensional one. The artist also contributes three stories, each in a slightly different approach. "Flying Dutchman" is the most straightforward, with a minimum of details. "From All Our Darkrooms" carries over the visually jarring, negative motif from the cover (see interior page below). While all three tales meet expectations, "The Conquered Earth" has the most visual appeal, benefiting from Ditko's unique treatment of spaceships, aliens and galaxies. This is number 2 of 11 Out of This World issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Out of This World issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
