To Celebrate Steve Ditko’s 84th birthday this ‘Cover of the Week’ is an extra special one!
Done in February 1954 for Charlton comics, The Thing #12 was Steve Ditko’s first cover he ever had published. This formed the foundation for many more issues of The Thing for Steve Ditko and Charlton Comics. Enjoy!
Series: The Thing!
Issue Number: 12
Publisher: Charlton Comics
Year of Publication: 1954
Inker: Steve Ditko
This is not only the first Steve Ditko cover but also one of five issues he did for the series, which include: 13,14,15 & 17. His signature in the cover is also unusual as it includes his middle initial “J” which is not often included.
