Now available from the usual sources is TALES OF THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER, the latest in the revolving anthology series by SD Publishing and their Famous Comics imprint. Bit more of an anthology than usual, with only a pair of Ditko stories (but a solid pair, one of the best 1950s stories by Ditko/Gill, "Little Boy Blue", and "The Hand Of Ages", a fun 1980s Ditko story that goes with that great cover). There's also a short essay by Ditko and a preview of another unpublished story, possibly the same one previewed in earlier issues.

This issue also includes a number of other new and reprint stories and features, including work by Robin Snyder, Adolfo Buylla, Robert Kanigher, Alex Toth, Hennry Boltinoff, William Messner-Loebs and others.

The August, 2021 issue of Snyder's THE COMICS! newsletter also has an interesting short Ditko essay, "Credit", regarding the evolution of credits in Marvel comics, and in particular on the old 1960s Spider-Man promotional drawing (also reprinted in this issue). Might still be available from Snyder, address at link.
