Compilation of Ditkoâ€™s Short Comics Coming This November
IDW Publishing and Yoe Books continue their incisive look at Steve Ditkoâ€™s work with Ditkoâ€™s Shorts coming this November.
Craig Yoe exclaims, â€œTo put it short: Steve Ditko is â€˜Ditko handsâ€™ down the greatest living artist from main stream comics! His mastery is especially apparent in these amazing short stories where heâ€™s in, heâ€™s out and your mind has just been totally altered!â€
Ditko may best known as the artist and co-creator of larger-than-life characters like Spider-Man and Doctor Strange but did you know that he could also work on a smaller (or short) scale and achieve very big results? Ditko’s Shorts is a fun and incredibly fascinating compilation of short comics one, two, and three pages in length, showcasing that only a brilliant master like Ditko could tell such dramatic and compelling tale in such compact form.
Taken from rare comic books from a who’s who of publishers, all the short comics collected for this volume have been meticulously restored and printed in a beautiful, large-format book. The genres show Ditko’s great range as he easily navigates horror, fantasy, science fiction, western, and even humorous stories. This is a snapshot of his career that is not to be missed!
Also not to be missed are the insightful introductions by punk rocker and comics historian Fester Faceplant and Eisner Award-winner Craig Yoe.
â€œMore than just a hat-trick of Spider Man, Dr. Strange, and Mr. A, this collection is a perfect showcase of Ditko’s mastery of any genre he put his stamp on,â€ said Fester Faceplant.
