Who's Who - The Definitive Directory of the DC Universe #20 [1986]

Of the various Ditko creations for DC, Shade is probably the most Ditkoesque. A very inventive series, with a lot of great imagery, a constant stream of new ideas and a lot of potential.

He made a brief return to that world for this profile page almost a decade after it was abruptly cut short (with one completed issue still not published, and I'm sure plans for more). A nice taste of just some of the stunning visuals that Ditko designed for the book.

  1. Another great Ditko series I'd love to see reprinted, including that unpublished ninth issue.

    Supposedly Ditko had things plotted out up to about issue 17 or so. Would be nice to get an outline of what he had planned.
