Ditko's "Thor"

Did you know that Steve Ditko drew Thor? Oh, yeah....but not Marvel's THE MIGHTY THOR. This Charlton turkey from 1973.

Ditko was no doubt at the height of his powers in 1973, but this book is definitely NOT representative of that. It's very obviously a lackluster assignment which Ditko attacked without gusto. In fact, if this were an oil spill, this issue would be an Exxon Valdez if not the BP job: it's a disaster! I think his Bob's Big Boy art was better. But as a novelty/oddity, take a gander!
