Amazing Spider-man #19 - Steve Ditko art & cover

Steve Ditko
Amazing Spider-man v1 #19, 1964 - After kidnapping the Human Torch, Sandman and the Enforcers use him as bait to capture a newly motivated Spider-Man. As iconic as Steve Ditko's cover is, it still lacks the verve of previous efforts. His story art more than compensates, filled with multiple figures in several fight scenes. The layouts and sequencing are rapid yet entertaining. Despite a multitude of villains, Ditko places and positions the figures with confident ease. This is number 19 of 38 Amazing Spider-man issues with Ditko art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ditko or Amazing Spider-Man issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist.
