Superboy #257 - Steve Ditko art

Superboy (and the Legion of Super-Heroes) v1 #257, 1979 - Retired from the Legion, Bouncing Boy and Duo Damsel become colonists on a remote planet. When their powers are revealed, both must contend with the expectations of being former Legionnaires. Steve Ditko's style is recognizable this back-up tale, but too simplistic. The opening splash, showing a vista of the planet, is mostly squandered. Dan Adkins' inks unfortunately add little enhancement. Other artists in this issue include Dick Giordano, Joe Staton and David Hunt. This is number 1 of 1 Superboy issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Superboy issues.
