Steve Ditko's Gorgo #1

This is another of my favorite Silver Age comics, GORGO #1, a movie adaptation drawn by Steve Ditko, and published in 1960. Ditko went on to draw a couple more issues of GORGO, but this one is the only one I still have. These scans are from the 1966 reprint in FANTASTIC GIANTS. At the bottom are the front and back covers from GORGO #1, which were not drawn by Ditko.

  1. Dear HGE: Sorry to contact you via comments, but could not find a personal address in profile.

    I was a fan of the old eyeball, and have just discovered the new eyeball. I have linked your blog up in my new blog, which is called, The Big Blog of Kids' Comics:

    If you find me link-worthy, I would really appreciate it.

    PS: That new banner really is snazzy. -- Mykal

  2. Loved this book. I was really impressed by Ditko's work here but even as a kid I was baffled by the poor color choices (such as the yellow (!) scheme for the underwater diving bell scene.

  3. Excellent choice for a post! I was familiar with this comic, but had never read it before.

    Thanks for putting it up.
