Unusual Tales #12 - Steve Ditko art


Unusual Tales v1 #12, 1958 - An extraordinary amount of luck befalls an ordinary man, prompting him to seize the moment to enrich himself. The slightly elongated faces and figures are typical of Steve Ditko's early works, and this brief tale is no exception. His page layouts and pacing are merely adequate. Unfortunately, the drawings themselves beg for more effort and detail. Other artists in this issue include Rocco Mostroserio and Sal Trapani. This is number 7 of 18 Unusual Tales issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Unusual Tales issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
