This Magazine Is Haunted #19 [1954]

Not a bad cover, but also not nearly one of the best of Ditko's pre-code covers. A lot of nice individual touches, like the detail in the house in the background, the fog effect, a few details in the clothes of the invisible ghost. Unfortunately, it takes a while to realize that he's even going for a "tearing through the cover" effect, when that kind of thing, when done, should jump out at you as the very first thing you notice about a cover.
