Check out this VERY RARE 1965 LARGE ART cover, which was penciled by the great Steve Ditko, and inked by "Rocke" Mastroserio, from the story titled: "The Death Knell of the World!" Steve Ditko's very first superhero character he ever drew was Captain Atom (a title that pre-dated Spider-Man). The character appeared in Charlton's SPACE ADVENTURES title from #30, March 1960 through #42, October 1961. Towards the end of Ditko's run on Spider-man, the artist resurrected Captain Atom (in his own title) in 1965. The CAPTAIN ATOM #80 cover, displayed here, is actually the THIRD issue of the Captain's new adventures (the SPACE ADVENTURES covers featured stats taken from the interior story pages). The artwork appeared at the same time as THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #35. Large Art Ditko superhero covers from the mid-1960's are extremely scarce (the handful of ASM covers known to exist are locked-away in permanent collections, unlikely to re-surface any time soon). A large twice-up cover, measuring approximately 13 by 18 inches, lightly tanned with age. Just a great cover! Compare this nice cover art to the published comic book in the red link above! ALL art on our website (including this one) are able to be purchased with VERY fair time payments, and trades are always considered towards "ANY" art on our website! Just send us an email to mikeburkey@aol.com and we can try to work something out.
