Destructor #1 - Steve Ditko / Wally Wood art, Wood cover + 1st appearance

Wally Wood
The Destructor v1 #1, 1975 - A young thug turns his life around due to tragic circumstances. He begins to wreak havoc on organized crime as the Destructor. Wally Wood's inks improve upon the frenetic and convoluted cover by Larry Lieber. Inside, Wood's collaboration with Steve Ditko is a great example of two artists with different yet compatible styles. Both seem equally represented on every page, resulting in some terrific artwork. Their opening splash (see interior page shown below) is dynamically composed, introducing the title character with boldness and excitement. Written by Archie Goodwin, this is 1 of 2 Destructor issues by Wood and 1 of 4 Destructor issues by Ditko. /// key 1st appearance, 1st origin Destructor, 1st issue
