Upcoming Ditko - Two DC strays

DC has a pair of potpourri style books with a bit of Ditko coming this fall, which may be worth picking up. The 52: THE COMPANION has a bunch of stories featuring characters who were in that crossover, so the classic Question story is there. The GREAT DISASTER thing looks like they're taking any 1960s and 1970s story that had a post-atomic catastrophe future and deciding that they're all the same post-atomic future. As far as I can figure the Ditko is just a pair of two-page shorts, both with Colletta inks. A lot of the other stuff seems interesting, though.
