Upcoming Ditko - DITKO PRESENTS
Order info as usual, including the price when I know it for sure (more than likely the same $4 as the other recent books), over here.
Assuming PRESENTS comes out this year, and has the usual original Ditko work on three of the four covers in addition to the 32 interior pages, that'll make it 142 pages of new Ditko this year (counting the 2-page essay "The Ever Unwilling" in THE COMICS v20#3). Easily his most prolific year of the century, and if he keeps up this pace and writes a few more essays it could be his most prolific year since the early 1990s (and unlike in some years, he'll have written and inked and lettered all of the comics, too).
So, comments section of this post is the pool, how many pages of new Ditko will there be by the end of 2009. One guess per person, in the event of an over/under tie the under guess wins. Remember, this is not a competition, it is only an exhibition — please, no wagering (though if anyone gets it right on the dot I'll spring for an actual prize of some kind).
