Strange Tales of the Unusual #5 - Steve Ditko art

Strange Tales of the Unusual v1 #5, 1956 - In a department store, three people disappear in plain sight of the other customers. This mystery is ably illustrated by Steve Ditko. His linework is tigher, more precise than usual. A few panels look suspiciously like the contributions of another artist, but overall it's consistent with other works from the same era. On the title page, note the contrast between the detailed foreground against the minimal background. Other artists in this issue include Ed Winiarski, Gene Colan, Reed Crandall, Henry Lazarus, Howard O' Donnell, Robert McCarty and Bill Everett (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Strange Tales of the Unusual issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Strange Tales of the Unusual issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
