Upcoming Ditko - DC's DITKO OMNIBUS v2

Official solicitation for the second DITKO OMNIBUS from DC, a companion to the imminent first volume which will include SHADE, STALKER and Ditko's short non-series bits.

THE STEVE DITKO OMNIBUS VOL. 2 HC
Written by STEVE DITKO, LEN WEIN, PAUL LEVITZ, MARK MILLAR and others • Art by STEVE DITKO and others • Cover by STEVE DITKO
On sale DECEMBER 14 • 384 pg, FC, $59.99 US
Collecting tales by artist Steve Ditko from SHOWCASE #75, THE HAWK AND THE DOVE #1-2, MAN-BAT #1, DETECTIVE COMICS #483-485 and 487, ADVENTURE COMICS #467-468, LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #267, 268, 274, 276 and 281, OUTSIDERS #13, LEGENDS OF THE DC UNIVERSE 80-PAGE GIANT #1 and the TALES OF THE NEW GODS TP.
The issues for ADVENTURE are obviously a typo, it should be #467-478 for the complete run of Starman.  Two Legion stories are missing, #257 and #272, which would be an odd omission, since those are stand-alone stories while a few of the others are chapters of larger stories (and another features Doctor Mayavale).  And not too surprising, but no mention of the Ditko pages from longer stories in DC SPECIAL SERIES #9 [1978] and ACTION COMICS #642 [1989].  And hopefully one or the other of the Omnibus volumes will include stray single pages like Ditko's Superman pin-up and his pages for WHO'S WHO.
