New Ditko - New and Reprint Essays (3 of 3)

The latest issue of Robin Snyder's newsletter THE COMICS, Vol. 23 No. 9, has a four page section with the title "The Four-Page Series", containing five essays by Steve Ditko, I'd estimate nearly 4000 words of Ditko in all.

First are reprints of "The Knowers & the Barkers" from #17: SEVENTEEN and "The Silent Self-Deceivers" from THE COMICS Vol. 23 No. 7 (July 2012), followed by three new essays.

Here's the opening of the third new essay.

From "Why Out Of Their Way?" by Steve Ditko, 2012

A 6-issue subscription to THE COMICS is available for $15 in US ($19 foreign), payable to Robin Snyder

  1. Bob, I was intrigued by the essay Rob Imes quoted from on the Ditkomania FB page. Ditko makes mention of people wanting something from him but giving nothing in return. It sounds as if he's referencing interview requests. I wonder if TCJ or some other publisher came to Ditko and offered to pay him for an article on the subjects people want to ask him about if he'd be willing. Now he has been writing about those things over the years and has been ignored, so it's likely the reason why Ditko won't give away information is because he's been publishing it.
