Strange Tales #94 - Jack Kirby art & cover, Steve Ditko art

Jack Kirby
Strange Tales v1 #94, 1962 - Two Jack Kirby stories reside in this issue. In the first, a band of alien space pirates arrive on Earth, while in the second, radioactive residue creates a super-intelligent, malevolent weed. Both are competently drawn, though it's interesting to compare the inking styles of Joe Sinnott and Dick Ayers. In a third tale, Steve Ditko presents the mystery of an unknown caller who claims to be from another world. There's a simplicity to his drawings and layouts, but an increased clarity as well. This story was later reprinted in Kull #15. See today's posts or more Ditko, Kirby or Strange Tales issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist or Kirby checklist.
