Haunted Love #5 - Steve Ditko art


Haunted Love v1 #5, 1973 - One of Steve Ditko's few gothic romance tales, "Until We Meet Again" is set in an unnamed seafaring village. The artist's graphic style of rendering is fully employed here. Most interesting are his quasar-like shapes for ocean waves and splashes on page 2. The following page (see inset shown above) is his most detailed, and not coincidentally his strongest aesthetically. Other artists in this issue include Joe Staton, Tom Sutton and Sanho Kim (cover). This is number 2 of 2 Haunted Love issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Haunted Love issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
