Upcoming Ditko - Kraven reprints

Coming out in April is this one-shot that reprints two Ditko-era AMAZING SPIDER-MAN issues that featured Kraven the Hunter. No idea if the actual reprints will be presented straight, or if the "all-new pages" by people not named Ditko will intrude on them, and no idea what "remastered color" entails, if it's the stuff they use in other recent reprints of those stories or that modern stuff like the recent reprints of Kirby's Tales of Asgard stories. Still, two good issues of Spider-Man there, though I imagine most people reading this who care already have them in some form, can't hurt to  have some cheap Ditko reprints out there for people not familiar with his work.
