Outer Space v2 #1 - Steve Ditko art


Outer Space v2 #1, 1968 - The original Outer Space science fiction series was thankfully replete with Steve Ditko stories. This 1960s revival lasted only a single issue, but fortunately boasts a Ditko story of fairly high caliber. "His Own Little World" uses an array of patterns, textures and other graphic devices to full effect. The artist's grid layout is fairly standard, but he fills nearly every panel with creativity. His fantastical approach is not incompatible with the sci-fi genre, as this example illustrates. Other artists in this issue include Pat Boyette (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Outer Space v2 issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Outer Space issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
