Unknown Worlds #54 - Steve Ditko art

Unknown Worlds v1 #54, 1967 - A timid high school teacher seeks closure after his own death in this oddly humorous Steve Ditko tale. His illustrations border on whimsical but most of the figures are too stiffly drawn. The only point of interest is the large opening panel, featuring a strangely cloaked figure suspiciously similar to Ditko's later Doctor Strange (see interior page). Other artists in this issue include Paul Reinman and Lou Wahl aka Kurt Schaffenberger (cover). This is number 4 of 4 Unknown Worlds issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Unknown Worlds issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
