Tales of Suspense #37 [1963] – Cover


Some great alien creatures on this Kirby/Ditko cover. I especially love the sample from Saturn. Plus the usual crazy Kirby tech over on the ray gun.

(possibly Ayers inks, see comments)

    Very cool – Kirby/Ditko, you say? Did Ditko do the inking (the man in the suit looks very Ditko-esque, he didn’t by chance do any of the pencils)?

    Ditko inked the cover. He also drew the interior cover story, a rather unusual 13-page monster story for him (I can’t think of any other non-superhero story he did for Marvel from the period that was more than six pages). Now that I think about it, I wonder if the story was meant to have Kirby pencils and given to Ditko when Kirby was too busy.

    You sure on that, Nick? I was getting a lot of Ditko from Haag and the human, but a lot of Ayers from the ray gun, and deferred to the Kirby checklist update on it in the end. I’ll have to take a closer look comparing it to other covers of the era.
