Haunted #3 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
Haunted v1 #3, 1972 - Distressed over premonitions of her husband's death, a businessman's wife travels across the world to try to save him. Steve Ditko's third issue of Haunted demonstrates a mastery of line and texture. The opening full page is superbly composed despite the lackluster typography. Frequent close-ups of character's faces are haunting and expressive. Ditko's chaotic cover nicely hints at the inside story. Other artists this issue include Fred Himes and Pete Morisi. This is number 3 of 23 Haunted issues with Ditko art and/or covers (reprints not included). See today's posts or more Ditko or Haunted issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
