The Thing! 15, 1954

Before artist Steve Ditko achieved undying fame as the co-creator of the Amazing Spider-Man, he worked on Charlton comic's horror title The Thing!. This is, in my humble opinion, his best cover of the run.

The giant worm on this cover is awesomely horrible and frightening, but not without some artistic beauty thanks to Ditko's incredible talent. I just got this comic (9/2002) and haven't had a chance to read it yet. I'll try to add more info soon!

Ok, I've now read this comic and it's a great one! Not only does it actually have a giant worm story inside, as illustrated on the cover - which is fairly uncommon, but it also has other great stories inside that are well written and illustrated in style by Steve Ditko. In a perfect world all comics would be this well done!
