Amazing Spider-man #17 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
Amazing Spider-man v1 #17, 1964 - The return of the Green Goblin brings out an unexpected ally, namely the Fantastic Four's Human Torch. Steve Ditko's cover tries too hard putting equal emphasis on the main characters, flattening the picture plane. Inside, his story art is far better, presenting the Goblin's new technology and weaponry. His pacing and layouts are finely tuned. Perhaps most impressive is Ditko's superbly drawn faces and expressions. This is number 17 of 38 Amazing Spider-man issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Amazing Spider-Man issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
