Space War #8 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
Space War v1 #8, 1960 - Radiated by a nuclear flash, a spaceman quarantines himself from Earth, only to be reduced by alien outcasts. Credit to Steve Ditko for his enthusiastic and robust effort. Each page is finely detailed and lovingly drawn. The (mostly) outer space settings are awash in stars and planets, suggesting a universe teeming with life. As usual, Ditko’s inventive shapes are perfectly suited to the science fiction genre. The cover is only a montage of interior panels. Other artists in this issue include Bill Molno, Rocco Mastroserio and Vince Alascia. This is number 4 of 5 Space War issues with Ditko art and/or covers (not including reprints).
