Fightin' Army #90 - Steve Ditko art

Fightin' Army v1 #90, 1970 - Assigned to a remote outpost, a young private realizes he's the bait for an oncoming Red Chinese army.  Steve Ditko opens with a large opening panel, but squanders it due to lack of details. Subsequent pages display more effort, toggling between facial close-ups and amassed figures (see interior page below). The remainder of Ditko's tale more than compensates for its weak beginning. Other artists in this issue include Rocco Mastroserio and Sam Glanzman. This is number 3 of 4 Fightin' Army issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Ditko or Fightin' Army issues. See also this blog's Steve Ditko checklist.
