Tales of the Mysterious Traveler #3 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
Tales of the Mysterious Traveler v1 #3, 1957 - An artist returns to his native Czechoslovakia, using his talents under an assumed name while spying on the Reds. This tale of espionage seems more appropriate for a war comic rather among mystery tales. Steve Ditko does a fine job on the opening scene, revealing the Traveler's face in the textured background. Remaining pages, however, are decidedly minimal and lackluster. The artist's cover, by comparison, is an interesting array of vignettes from the stories inside. This is number 2 of 11 Tales of the Mysterious Traveler issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Tales of the Mysterious Traveler issues.
