Spider-Man and Captain Atom



It's nice to get the chance to do an all-Steve Ditko cover.  Looking at the Spidey pose that he did here showcases two of Ditko's talents - He was a master of depicting the Web-Slinger's physicality and the costume design he gave the hero looks great from any angle.

Ditko really did love extended limbs, didn't he. And except for Doc Strange, never did busy backgrounds.

Is that Kang, in the top right corner, trying to change history again?

No, it's one of Captaon Atom's bad guys, the Fiery Icer.

No offense or anything, but actually, Bob Buethe's right. It's the Fiery Icer. I have a copy of the CAPTAIN ATOM issue he appears in that is the main basis of this cover. The character has a dumb name, but it's a good--if not amazing--story.

great cover, but I prefer Cap's yellow outfit from his early days. More of a stand alone kind of character.
