Now accepting pledges is the latest Ditko/Snyder Kickstarter for #2oww1, the twenty-first in Ditko's current series of comics, to feature returning characters The Outline, The Grey Negotiator and The !? and more (possibly something called "The ES"?).

New and Upcoming Ditko - MR. A. #15 and others

0 comments
To catch up some...

Now available from Robin Snyder is MR. A. #15.  This contains two new Mr. A. stories, "The Best Deal" (20-pages) and "Exploder" (11-pages), that Ditko originally intended for the first issue of a MR. A. series solicited but unpublished by AAA circa 1990, the front and back cover for that issue and a classic Mr. A. page first seen on the back cover of the 1973 issue of MR. A.

To anticipate the inevitable question, I do not know the exact reasoning for the "#15" designation, but will note that the following 14 prior publications contained at least one original story featuring Mr. A. (many others contained single page Mr. A. features):

WITZEND #3 [1967]
WITZEND #4 [1968]
COMIC CRUSADER #6 [1969]
COMIC CRUSADER #7 [1969]
GRAPHIC ILLUSIONS #1 [1971]
THE COLLECTOR #26 [1972]
COMIC CRUSADER #13 [1972]
SENSE OF WONDER #11 [1972]
MR. A #1 [1973]
MR. A #2 [1975]
COMIC CRUSADER STORYBOOK [1978]
STEVE DITKO'S 176-PAGE PACKAGE HEROES [2000]
DITKO CONTINUED... [2009]
OH, NO! NOT AGAIN, DITKO! [2009]

And I thought I had posted about it before, but apparently not, so I'll just mention that #20 (or as I still like to call it, "#SNAKE FACE") is also out, with Miss Eerie, The Cape and more. It also announces the next book in the series, which appears to be called #2oww1 and will feature The Outline, The !? and The Grey Negotiator. THE FOUR-PAGE SERIES might have some more issues, and while I can't say for certain that more Mr. A. is in the pipeline, I will note that Ditko kept the "Coming: The Origin Of Mr. A." blurb on the last page of "The Best Deal".
