Blue Beetle v5 #3, 1967 - The colorfully garbed villains on the cover bear a strong resemblance to The Creeper, a hero Steve Ditko would create around the same timeframe. The multitude of small panels throughout the feature story are not as bothersome as before, as the artist takes greater care of the overall page designs. The complexity and garishness of the attackers' costumes result in beautifully patterned fight scenes that are nearly abstract (page 12 for one). Additionally, Ditko's opening splash page is intricately and lovingly detailed. This is number 3 of 5 Blue Beetle v5 issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Blue Beetle issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
