World of Fantasy #18 - Steve Ditko art, Jack Kirby art & cover

Jsck Kirby
World of Fantasy v1 #18, 1959 - In Steve Ditko's tale, a scientist escapes his employers using the time machine he invented. The artwork is more than capable, switching from future to present and back again (see interior page below). Most impressive are Ditko's use of circle patterns to denote time travel. Jack Kirby tells of another scientist who approaches an automotive president about building an intelligent machine. While the inking is spare, the pencils are marvelous. The advanced technological settings on page are especially well detailed. Kirby's cover seems simple by comparison. Other artists in this issue include John Forte, Joe Sinnott and Don Heck. This is number 3 of 4 World of Fantasy issues with Ditko art and/or covers and number 4 of 5 World of Fantasy issues with Kirby art and/or covers.
