Description

    Steve Ditko Beware the Creeper #2 Cover Original Art (DC, 1968). Ditko art on a Ditko character... it doesn't get much better than that! In the switch from the Silver Age to the Bronze Age, Steve Ditko made a very brief stop at DC Comics (1968-69) during which he co-created some new and fresh characters for them. The Creeper's bold and garish costume was matched with an equally strange storyline, all of which struck a chord with many readers. The cover images for this series harken back to his early Amazing Spider-Man work, with a manic element befitting the character. This cover is simply gorgeous with the giant Ditko faces and the Creeper's out-of-control red hair-collar. Produced in ink over graphite on DC Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". The title blurb and logo are original paste-ups. The page is slightly tanned with some pinholes in top margins and minor handling and corner wear. Overall in Excellent condition and a fantastic example of that Ditko style!
