The Amazing Art of Diving

This post features a full-page illustration from The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1. Published in 1964, the comic featured six of Spider-Man's deadliest foes and artist Steve Ditko used the extra space of the annual format to include six action-packed splash pages. In this example we see Doctor Octopus wearing scuba gear to fight our wall-crawling hero in a giant fishbowl!

I've also included the preceding panel where we can see that Ditko has obviously used some reference for the regulator, unlike some of the other artists featured in this blog. (Click for larger images).
