Strange Tales #67 - Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko art

Strange Tales v1 #67, 1959 - After inventing a matter transporter, a scientist is accidentally sent to another planet in a distant galaxy. The artwork is wildly creative, combined with thoughtful layouts and pacing. Steve Ditko's rich imagination is evident here. In separate story, another scientist gains the power to move at the speed of light, rendering himself invisible to people. Jack Kirby takes a more conservative approach to the layouts, but his pencils are more than sufficient. This story was later reprinted in Giant-size Man-Thing #1. Other artists in this issue include Don Heck. See today's posts or more Ditko, Kirby or Strange Tales issues.
