Space War #10 - Steve Ditko art & cover


Space War v1 #10, 1961 - Accidentally caught in an h-bomb explosion, a man is transformed into an ethereal, floating entity. Steve Ditko does his best with this odd little tale. Contrasting shadows, outlines and even pointillism enables readers to see the “invisible” main character. Some techniques are frankly better than others. The title page layout is somewhat clumsy, followed by a repetitive grid. Still, Ditko’s work overall meets expectations. In a cost-cutting measure, a montage of interior panels serves as the cover. Other artists in this issue include Bill Molno, Rocco Mastroserio and Sal Trapani. This is number 5 of 5 Space War issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints).
