Steve Ditko might be most famous for his work on Marvel heroes, including Spider-Man, Hulk and Dr. Strange. But his first professional comics assignments were hard-boiled pulp comics. Brought out before the Comics Code Authority shackled comics into a more child-friendly world, creators like Ditko were turning out monsters and psychological horror, scarier and more disturbing than most other media at the time.
This collection of Ditko’s work from 1953-4 looks at the kind of work that brought this amazing talent to the forefront of comics over the following years, working alongside the likes of Jack Kirby and Stan Lee. But before that, he was responsible for some fascinating and disturbing tales of Strange Suspense.
