New Ditko - DITKOMANIA #86

2 comments

DITKOMANIA #86 is now available, the 2011 Halloween issue, with a very nice Spider-Man cover on that theme.  Inside is a detailed look at the changes made (and variations on reprints) on Ditko's Spider-Man covers and the second part in a detailed article about Mort Todd's work with Ditko.

Single issue and subscription information are over here, and the Ditkomania mailing list is down this way.

Unusual Tales - Little Girl Lost

0 comments

"Unusual Tales", a series presenting Steve Ditko's comics from 1957 to 1959 that are in the public domain.

"Little Girl Lost" is a 4-page story first published in Charlton's TALES OF THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER #6 [1957].  Strange little story about a couple worried about their missing child. Seems to be something missing in the script, but the art is nicely dramatic, especially the extreme close-ups.

But before the story, some links:
A DITKO #14 now available
Great art and articles on all eras of Ditko
DC's DITKO OMNIBUS v1 out now with Shade, Stalker and more
Scans in this series generally adapted to my personal tastes from those copies

New Ditko - A DITKO #14

0 comments
Now available, A DITKO #14, the latest Ditko solo release from Ditko and Robin Snyder.

As usual, all the new books and various other Ditko publications are available directly from Robin Snyder, details here, and the new book should be available from retailers who order from Snyder now or in the near future (interested retailers should contact Snyder for terms, which are probably better than you get for similar comics from your main distributor). For those who usually buy from me, you can order the single comic with various shipping options from this page, or contact me (kirbyweblog at gmail dot com) if you want to order it with any of the other books.
