Description

    Steve Ditko Out of This World #7 Cover Original Art (Charlton, 1958). Before Metamorpho, this man of many materials appeared on the strange, different, and unusual cover of this issue, one of the scarce 15¢ issues that Charlton produced in the late '50s. Check out the side banner -- does it remind you of any friendly neighborhood web-spinner? Even at the start of his career Steve Ditko was an accomplished artist. He made the rounds looking for comic book work in 1953, and after an interlude, soon found steady work at Charlton Comics. Even though Ditko's production rate for Charlton was enormous, his originals from that era remain nearly impossible to find. This eerie cover has an approximate image area of 13" x 19.5". The art has been professionally restored, including recreating the title logo stat and "newspaper" portion of the cover figure (including "aging" the paper to match the remaining art); other than a few stains, the art appears in Very Good condition. A copy of the comic book is included with this lot.
