New Ditko - KONGA #25

Now available from SD Publishing, the 48 page KONGA #25, picking up the numbering from Charlton's FANTASTIC GIANTS #24 in 1966, which had continued from the 23 issue run of KONGA from 1960 to 1965.  The opening story features the title character in "The Land Of The Frozen Giants" from KONGA #8 [1962] and then there are seven more Charlton published short stories dating from 1957 to 1962, all of them sharply reprinted in black and white.

"The Cheapest Steak In Nome" - MYSTERIES OF UNEXPLORED WORLDS #7 [1958]
"The Size Secret" - KONGA #9 [1962]
"The Thing From Below" - OUT OF THIS WORLD #5 [1957]
"Flying Dutchman" - OUT OF THIS WORLD #4 [1957]
"Manana" - OUT OF THIS WORLD #9 [1958]
"Imagination" - OUT OF THIS WORLD #8 [1958]
"Why He Survived" - KONGA #8 [1962]

Available now or soon from the usual sources, including co-publisher Robin Snyder over here with the other Snyder/Ditko publications, now by popular demand accepting PayPal. Retailers who are interested in making the books available to their customers should contact Snyder for wholesale rates.

Snyder informs me that a few more of their older issues have gone out of print (ACT 3 and #20), so don't hesitate if there's anything you need. On the flip side, there are new editions of some of the FOUR-PAGE SERIES issues available, #5 and #6, which are available for US$1.50 postpaid (US$2.50 international).

  1. I remember there was a reprint of some Konga material from Snyder that had to use the name "The Lonely One" because Joe Gill and Ditko didn't own the Konga name (a movie studio did). Unless Konga the name has fallen into the public domain (or Snyder somehow licensed it for one-time use) I wonder how it can appear under the Konga name.
