Unusual Tales #6 - Steve Ditko cover

Steve Ditko
Unusual Tales v1 #6, 1957 - Steve Ditko begins his run on the series with this striking cover. The artist invented many strange fantastical beasts in his early works for Charlton. This sea creature is magnificently drawn and sharply designed. Its festive colors and forms look similar to ancient Chinese depictions of dragons. The people are purposely small by comparison and even the fishing line adds movement and contrast. This is number 1 of 18 Unusual Tales issues with Ditko art and/or covers.
