Morlock 2001 #3 - Steve Ditko / Bernie Wrightson art


Morlock 2001 and the Midnight Men v1 #3, 1975 - Two celebrated comic book artists, Steve Ditko and Bernie Wrightson, join forces for the first and only time in this bronze age Atlas/Seaboard issue. Sadly, their respective styles are completely divergent, lacking both cohesion and consistency. Ditko's pencils are more erratic than usual, dominating the overall look of the story. Wrightson struggles to create depth and modeling on flat, graphically rendered scenes and characters. The results are disappointing, but reveals how some artist pairings do more harm than good. This is number 1 of 1 Morlock 2001 issues with Ditko art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Morlock 2001 issues with Wrightson art and/or covers.
