Upcoming Ditko - Strange Tales reprint and random Spider-Man

Pair of reprints from Marvel. There's a Spider-Man reprint mini-series which apparently reprints some random selection of comics, with the fourth issue it has three issues of the Ditko run for a good price, if you're looking for a Ditko-era Spider-Man sampler. And for the first time the Marvel Masterworks line gets to one of Ditko's seventeen stories from his first run at Marvel, with the 4-page never reprinted "The Greatest Experiment" from STRANGE TALES #46 [1956].  Unfortunately Ditko's stories were so scattered that they'll be spread out among almost seventeen different books in this format.
