IDW And Yoe Books Bring Us Steve Ditko’s Shorts

DitkoSteve Ditko is best known for creating characters like Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, The Creeper and The Question. But he was also a master of the short 1 to 3 page story that he did for a variety of publishers. Now IDW Publishing and Yoe Books have put together a collection of 38 of these short stories set to come out this November.

Craig Yoe exclaims, “To put it short: Steve Ditko is ‘Ditko hands’ down the greatest living artist from main stream comics! His mastery is especially apparent in these amazing short stories where he’s in, he’s out and your mind has just been totally altered!”

Taken from rare comic books from a who’s who of publishers, all the short comics collected for this volume have been restored and printed in a large-format book. The book shows Ditko’s great range as he easily navigates horror, fantasy, science fiction, western, and even humorous stories.
