New Ditko - Spidey/Strange reprint & Captain 3-D backgrounds

The collection of the recent SPIDER-MAN: FEVER mini-series is out now, and in addition to the new Spider-Man / Doctor Strange team-up it includes the original Ditko variation on that theme from THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #2 [1965].

Those interested in early Ditko might also want to take a look at THE SIMON & KIRBY SUPERHEROES, a new hardcover collection of all the superhero work S&K did for publishers other than DC and Marvel. Ditko, along with other artists, did some work on the backgrounds of the Captain 3-D material early in his career, and those stories are reprinted for the first time in here, in colour instead of 3-D.  Of course, that's the smallest reason to pick up the book, which also has hundreds of pages of other material, including the complete Fighting American.
