What If (Iron Man Had Been a Traitor?) special #1 - Steve Ditko art

What If (Iron Man Had Been a Traitor?) v1 special #1, 1988 - Changing a critical event in Iron Man's origin, this tale presents an interesting alternate future. At thirty-plus pages, this is one of Steve Ditko's lengthiest stories. Unfortunately, the artwork is ill-suited for the rather serious plot. Too many panels are oversimplified and many of the drawings (especially the characters' faces) border on cartoonish. Pat Redding's inks add detail in too few scenes and provide little enhancement overall. Other artists in this issue include Al Milgrom and Jack Abel (cover). This is number 2 of 2 What If? issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or What If? issues. See also this blog's Steve Ditko checklist.
