This Magazine Is Haunted #18 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
This Magazine Is Haunted v1 #18, 1954 - Murder and mayhem ensue on this colorfully designed Steve Ditko cover. Inside, he illustrates a different tale, told from the perspective of a wedding dress. Not surprisingly, it involves a groom who has a tendency to rob and murder his wives. This is an early work, evidenced by the distorted but expressive character faces. Ditko’s heavy use of solid black stands out from the rest of the book, but the effort overall falls short of other works from the same era. This is number 3 of 9 This Magazine Is Haunted issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or This Magazine Is Haunted issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
