Strange Tales #71 - Steve Ditko art


Strange Tales v1 #71, 1959 - A man enters an old European curio shop, stumbling upon the diary of the legendary wizard Merlin. While generally drawn with heavier lines, Steve Ditko maintains a high level of detail. Each panel seems carefully constructed, many of which could stand of their own. The gargoyle-like statues within the store add a nicely menacing touch, Overall, the artwork is competent and enthusiastic. This story was later reprinted in Chamber of Darkness #6Other artists in this issue include Joe Sinnott and Don Heck. Cover by Jack Davis.
