Destructor #4 - Steve Ditko art

The Destructor v1 #4, 1975 - Hiding in the caverns of New Mexico, the hero encounters the Outcasts, a group of super-powered freaks. Along with the opening splash, Steve Ditko fills the tale with roomy and varied panels. Unlike the sharply graphic drawings of the previous issue, his pencils are softened by the inks of Al Milgrom. The extra dimension and details are certainly welcome, but overall the results still fall short of expectations. Milgrom also supplies the Kirby-esque cover. This is number 4 of 4 Destructor issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Destructor issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
