Well, here was a bit of a surprise. The Ditko story was announced as backup done for Simonson's ORION series back around 2000, but for whatever reason was never used. Good to see it seeing the light of day. Some other contents of the book are pretty good, as well (the Evanier/Rude/Royer MISTER MIRACLE story, in particular).
