Legion of Super-Heroes v2 #274 - Steve Ditko art


Legion of Super-Heroes v2 #274, 1981 - While the Legion mourns over his apparent death, an amnesiac Ultra Boy is taken in by a band of space pirates. Steve Ditko's full length story is punctuated by two splash pages and many spacious panels. Some facial expressions look more forced than others, but otherwise the artist does a largely credible job. Frank Chiaramonte's inking style bears a strong resemblance to Wally Wood, which decidedly benefits Ditko's pencils. Other artists in this issue include Rich Buckler and Bob Smith (cover). This is number 4 of 6 Legion of Super-Heroes issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Legion of Super-Heroes issues. See also this blog's Steve Ditko checklist.
