Blue Beetle v5 #4 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Blue Beetle v5 #4, 1967 - As with the previous installments, the Question back-up stories are noticeably dialogue-heavy, leaving less room for the art. Still, it seems to improve and evolve with each issue. Steve Ditko's cover design is quietly modest compared to his feature story inside. Within a limited grid system, Ditko delivers exquisitely drawn panels at an frenetic and exciting pace. Among the highlights: the multifaceted opening splash and the visually/literally explosive final pages (see interior page below). This is number 4 of 5 Blue Beetle v5 issues with Ditko art and/or covers.
