Ghostly Tales #55 - Steve Ditko art


Ghostly Tales v1 #55, 1966 - Fumbling through the ancient catacombs of Rome, a journalist seeks the undiscovered tombs of the great caesars. Interestingly, Steve Ditko typically inks his own pencils but in this case Rocky Mastroserio provides the finishing touches. Drawings are more detailed and textural than usual. More pages than not are recognizably Ditko (see interior page below). While a fascinating example of melding two different styles, overall the artwork struggles to find common ground. Other artists in this issue include Jim Aparo. This is number 1 of 61 Ghostly Tales issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Ditko or Ghostly Tales issues. See also this blog's Steve Ditko checklist.
