Upcoming Ditko - Creeper hardcover

DC has scheduled the long-anticipated reprint of Ditko's Creeper material as a colour hardcover coming out in February 2010.  It's pretty much all of Ditko's stuff with the character (plus some art by others at the end of the original series), except for the unpublished issue of SHOWCASE which was only released as part of the photocopied package CANCELLED COMIC CAVALCADE #2. Other than that lapse (and it's not too late to change your mind on that, DC) it looks like a pretty good package.

[Update, it seems DC did see the light, the issue will include the CCC #2 / "Showcase #106" issue, in black and white, so the book will be 288 pages at the same price]


Written by Steve Ditko, Don Segall, Dennis O'Neil and Michael Fleischer; Art by Steve Ditko and others; Cover by Steve Ditko
Steve Ditko, co-creator of Spider-Man, struck again in 1968 with the strange hero The Creeper. Now, for the first time, DC collects Ditko's Creeper epics from SHOWCASE #73, BEWARE THE CREEPER #1-6, 1ST ISSUE SPECIAL #7 and short stories from WORLD'S FINEST COMICS #249-255.

  1. I'm anticipating this very eagerly...

  2. Nice collection.

    Also wish they had included the planned Showcase issues. That would really make it complete.
