Space War #6 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
Space War v1 #6, 1960 - Based on a suggestion from a friend, a comic book artist/writer concocts a tale of blue aliens landing on Earth. The first panel seems a bit staid, an obvious placement of figures in the fore-, mid- and background. From there, Steve Ditko’s layouts improve, along with his distinctive drawings. The artist employs plenty of linework, increasing dimension on many of the character faces. Page 2 is the most visually interesting, a depiction of the main character’s studio filled with various objects and inspirations. Ditko’s cover is only a montage of interior panels. Other artists in this issue include Bill Molno, Rocco Mastroserio and Vince Alascia. This is number 3 of 5 Space War issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints).
