Fantastic Giants v2 #24 - Steve Ditko art, cover & reprints

Steve Ditko
Fantastic Giants v2 #24, 1966 - Steve Ditko's work is showcased in this special one-shot issue. Two landmark reprints from Gorgo #1 and Konga #1 accompany two new stories. In the first, an African witch doctor sculpts an idol from a giant meteorite and claims leadership over his tribe. Otherworldly images are the artist's specialty and this one is no exception. The drawings culminate in an outstanding splash page (see interior page below). Ditko's second feature tells of a village terrorized by an indestructible brute. While not as impressive as the first tale, it still displays plenty of skill and effort. Similarly, Ditko's busy new cover is visually compelling with a touch of humor. See today's posts or more Ditko or Fantastic Giants issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
