53 YEARS AGO TODAY

By this time your local comics pusher should have had all 11 of Marvel's books for January on their spinner rack. Eight of them with covers by Kirby.
Seven of those covers, like this one, were inked by Chic Stone

If Ditko had drawn more than one cover maybe Marvel would have promoted it too!

  1. I was under the impression that Marvel (Stan) didn't WANT Ditko to do covers. In the entire run of Dr. Strange, Ditko never ONCE had a cover illustration of the good doctor, until his very last issue, #146 "The End at Last"...and even that had an altered hand based upon the inside splash page....
