Many Ghosts of Doctor Graves #55 [1976]

A very simple design on this one, but I do like the use of negative space to define the imposing shape of the monster of the issue, and you can see that Ditko put a lot of work into it, with the tiny little traces of fur on parts of the creature and the contrast in hatchwork on the roof where the shadow falls.

And look at that woman. Was Ditko having flashbacks to sharing a studio with Eric Stanton a decade earlier or something?
