Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe #1 [1985]

Ditko did seven entries in seven different issues for the second ("Deluxe") edition of Marvel's character index series, drawing the main character pose for a variety of characters that he usually had some recent history with. Joe Rubinstein inked all the entries for the series.

For the first issue, Ditko is called upon to draw one of Jack Kirby's most wonderfully bizarre characters of the 1970s, Captain America foe Arnim Zola, the Bio-Fanatic, a character who had graced a then-recent Avengers story that Ditko illustrated.
