--Link-- DITKOMANIA Kickstarter

0 comments
Oops, almost missed this. DITKOMANIA editor Rob Imes has a Kickstarter project ending in a few days for DITKOMANIA #90, an extra-long issue with a lot on Ron Frantz and his 1980s publishing outfit ACE Comics, which had some Ditko work both published (What Is... The Face and Return Of The Skyman) and planned but unpublished (Ooky & Zooky with Jerry Siegel, Crypt Of The Claw with Mort Todd).

The project has already made its funding goal, and you have a choice of print or digital (PDF) or both, plus some available extras.

More on DITKOMANIA over here.

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

And, just to be me, I'm only going to tell you the title of one of them today. More on the rest of them... soon. Maybe tomorrow.
