Upcoming Ditko - General update

Just catching up on some upcoming Ditko stuff.

DITKO ONCE MORE is the next Ditko/Snyder publication, expected in May,ordering info here.

DITKOMANIA should have a new issue going out to subscribers this week, and several more this year.

Dark Horse's reprints of the 1960s Warren books have at least three more volumes out this year, and when those are out you'll be able to get all of Ditko's 16 stories spread across five books.

Marvel's softcover Masterworks continue. Second SPIDER-MAN out soon, and the second FANTASTIC FOUR has a bit of Ditko inking (and one story with one panel that might be Ditko pencils). Expect a Hulk and another Spider-Man by the end of the year.

There's a hardcover Spider-Man book that inexplicably collects the classic Sinister Six story from AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #1 with a "sequel" done in the 1990s.

DC's SHOWCASE PRESENTS THE CREEPER seems to have vanished from their schedule. Dare I hope this is so the material can get a proper colour and all-Ditko treatment?

AC's CRYPT OF HORROR #6 is solicited as having some Ditko among other contents, presumably some 1950s story or stories.

Further down the road (and thus still tentative as such listings tend to be), Amazon shows an anthology from IDW with some Ditko, another book from IDW that's all Ditko (Yo, Craig, drop me a line, let me know what's in these), another Ditko book from Fantagraphics and a Dark Horse collection that will have some of Ditko's INDIANA JONES stories from the 1980s. Yes, really.
