Reading Room TALES OF SUSPENSE "Creature from the Black Bog!"

Is this guy a "Kirby Kreature"?
Art by Francesco Francavilla
Read the story and judge for yourself!
While it's clear that Steve Ditko penciled and inked this Stan Lee-scripted tale from Atlas' Tales of Suspense #23 (1961), did he design the Creature?
It's unknown if the moody cover by Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko predates the interior art.
But considering the differences in facial detail, I'd say it was done first, which would make this monster a Kirby Kreature!
The George Roussos version from Marvel's Monsters on the Prowl #19 (1972) follows the Ditko design pretty closely, but shows the elderly couple as teenagers/young adults!
