Ghost Artist-Bhob Stewart/Russ Jones, Steve Ditko/Jim Aparo?-1973

Here's the oft-reprinted GHOST ARTIST, shown yet again because Robby Reed, in his epic telling of the Ditko story, mentions this as being inked by Jim Aparo! Sure looks like it, too...only Bhob Stewart himself wrote about the behind the scenes of this piece here and he doesn't mention it, nor do I spot any other references to it. Plus, Aparo was long gone from Charlton by '73 and well-ensconced at DC. Either way, a fun insider story inspired by the studios of Leonard Starr and Wally Wood. And when you're done, check out DIAL B FOR BLOG's unprecedentedly amazing Ditko piece!
