The Thing a la Steve Ditko

Legendary comic book artist Steve Ditko did some work for Charlton comics in the early 1950s. This was in the horror & crime era of comics, as superheroes took a backseat for a decade or so after WW2. Dig this awesome cover from The Thing # 15

The Thing # 15

Leave it to Steve Ditko to make a story involving a giant killer worm into something special & memorable! Give special attention to that rendering of the homicidal giant worm’s face! Harrowing!

Thank you, Steve Ditko, for so many great comic memories!
