Unusual Tales #22 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
Unusual Tales v1 #22, 1960 - When a horde of space dragons near the planet of Quanta, an esteemed scientist is tasked with coming up with a solution for their people’s survival. Steve Ditko employs fine detailing on many of the panels. Cross-hatching is evident, especially on the character faces and clothing, Each page is impeccably designed and paced. Ditko's cover, while eye-catching, only repurposes two of the interior panels. Other artists in this issue include Nicholas Alascia and Sal Trapani. This is number 12 of 18 Unusual Tales issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Unusual Tales issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
