Space War #5 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Space War v1 #5, 1960 - A Venusian scientist theorizes that there is intelligent life on Earth, prompting his colleagues to send him there in an experimental rocket. Steve Ditko’s panel designs are generally simple and straightforward. The opening scene may even be too minimal. However, many of the facial close-ups are quite impressive in their detail.The artist proves himself more than adept in this genre (science fiction). Ditko’s partial cover art is borrowed from one of his interior panels. Other artists in this issue include Bill Molno and Vince Alascia. This is number 2 of 5 Space War issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Ditko or Space War issues. See also this blog's Steve Ditko checklist.
