Space War #4 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
Space War v1 #4, 1960 - After twenty years of prospecting, a space miner returns to an Earth fearful of contamination. Despite the repetitive grid, Steve Ditko draws the story with great skill and confidence. Plenty of detail and visual interest occupy the panels (see interior page below). Like many Charlton comics, the cover replicates some of Ditko's story panels inside. Other artists in this issue include Bill Molno, Sal Trapani and Vince Alascia. This is number 1 of 5 Space War issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Ditko or Space War issues. See also this blog's Steve Ditko checklist.
