This Magazine Is Haunted #19 - Steve Ditko cover

Steve Ditko
This Magazine Is Haunted v1 #19, 1954 - A formally dressed spectra bursts through the cover, daring readers to read the contents inside. The character looks strikingly similar to the Ghost, a DC Hawkman villain from the 1940s. That aside, Steve Ditko’s rendition reveals a youthful enthusiasm. The background is heavily textured, contrasting against the more graphically drawn foreground figure. A haunted mansion, a demon and the series host Dr. Death form a trio of visually eerie accents. This is number 4 of 9 This Magazine Is Haunted issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or This Magazine Is Haunted issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
