New Ditko - "The Captive Spark" local reprint

If you're in the Plymouth, Wisconsin area, see if you can snag a copy of THE CURRENT v6#6 [May, 2017], a supplement to The Review newspaper. Editor Rodney Schroeter has included a reprint of the 4-page story "The Captive Spark" (originally from ..WHA..!? #1 [1975], most recently reprinted in MR. A. #21 [2017]), along with a short write-up about Ditko and covers of some of his recent comics.

Those not in the area can read it here, although it looks like only the most recent issue is available, so it'll be gone in a few weeks.
