Eternity's End

Eternity's End
or: The Long Big Goodbye

Strange Tales 146. Sturdy Steve Ditko's swan song at Marvel. I don't know that he actually finished this one after Spider-Man 38 but, it has a greater sense of finality in the sense that Spider-man, and Marvel both, went nova with SM 33 and the next five issues are an extended denouement. Here we see Steve wrap up a storyline that's been going for close to two years and, once his job is done, walks off into the sunset.

The big climax is of course, Eternity and... well, that would be telling. Suffice it to say that the big E was Ditko at his psychedelic best.

Happy Trails,
Smitty
