Beyond the Grave #1 - Steve Ditko art

Beyond the Grave v1 #1, 1975 - Does the ghost of Jack the Ripper occupy a routine flight to London? Steve Ditko squanders the opening splash on his first story of the series. While the concept is fine, the execution falters with its rudimentary layout. The remaining pages are more satisfactory, drawn in Ditko's usual sharp, distinctive style. Other artists in this issue include Pat Boyette and Sanho Kim. This is number 1 of 5 Beyond the Grave issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Ditko or Beyond the Grave issues.
