--Link-- Ditko Kickstarter - DOWN MEMORY LANE

0 comments

Latest SD Publishing Kickstarter is now up. DOWN MEMORY LANE is the hook, and possibly the title, and it has something to do with the THE AVENGING MIND book published 10 years ago, which kicked off the long series of "Ditko's 32s" that has run for 26 issues to date, the latest earlier this year. The featured image is from the inside cover of THE AVENGING MIND.

It will no doubt, after the Kickstarter is over, also be available direct from Snyder, along with most of the previous books, details here.

New Ditko - MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER NO. 27

0 comments
Now available, TALES OF THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER NO. 27, the latest release from Snyder and Ditko. The book leads off with the 8-page "If...Then... The Game", continuing a feature from the late 20th century and the first posthumous release of original material from Ditko. The rest of the book is a voyage through Ditko's work in the first six decades of his professional career, with samples of his Charlton work in the 1950s and 1970s and his independent work from the other decades.

Available now or soon from the usual sources, including direct from 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.

There should be some news on the next book within the next week.

Happy 91

November 2, 1927, Steve Ditko born

Couldn't quite get up to 91 publications there for the photo (I guess if I stretched things a bit I could), I'm hoping by next year I can get up to 92.

--Link-- Ditko Kickstarter "Something Different"

0 comments
Robin Snyder now has the next SD Publishing project up at Kickstarter, promising "Something Different" in the 48-page anthology which will be published later this year.

And a reminder that a treasure trove of Snyder/Ditko published comics are just a quick mail order away, including most of the books from the previous Kickstarter campaigns, but more of them are going out of print.

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).

First page of "Paper Romance", a story published in  DARING LOVE #1 [1953] the September-October 1953 issue of the Gillmor Magazines comic, which appears to be the earliest published Steve Ditko comic story, if not the first drawn. More on it over here.

Final page of "Logan the Loser", the final story in #26 [2018], the Winter 2018 release from SD Publishing. Ordering details here. There are a few never before seen pages in the subsequent releases, but most of them were obviously drawn long ago. And there will probably be some future publications with more previously unseen material, either old or new.

1 comments
Now available for pledges is the 20th Snyder/Ditko Kickstarter for an upcoming 48-page anthology comic. The lead feature is "an item that has been out of print for too long" and there's probably a big clue in the graphic. Campaign open until July 4, 2018.
