Mystery Tales #47 - Steve Ditko art

Mystery Tales v1 #47, 1956 - A pair of cave explorers come across two sleeping men from ancient times. Sensing an opportunity, the spelunkers concoct lies that would ultimately benefit them. Steve Ditko's drawings have weight and mass, often using a heavy line. Most of the panels crop in on the faces, where thoughts and intentions are clearly conveyed. Appropriately, the close-ups also suggest a feeling of claustrophobia. Other artists in this issue include Reed Crandall and Robert Q. Sale. This is number 3 of 3 Mystery Tales issues with Ditko art and/or covers.
