Steve Ditko Mega Pack

Filed under: Comics,Mail — M Kitchen @ 2:09 pm

I Got Mail:  Today the ultimate Steve Ditko Mega Pack arrived in the Ultraist Studios mailbox.

I first learned of all of these comic books from Dave Sim via The Blog And Mail a few years back. Ever since, I’ve been meaning to pick these up. Finally got around to it last week when I placed an order with Bob Heer.

Steve Ditko has designed most of my favourite comic stuff from Spider-Man to the Blue Beetle.
I can’t wait to see what creator owned stuff Ditko has been drawing over the past decades.

I’m especially interested to read THE AVENGING MIND.
Here’s the complete list of books I got.

One thing I had always assumed was that these books were letter sized photocopied fanzines, but they’re actually standard sized comics printed on newsprint! Open them up and they smell like a proper comic! That was a pleasant surprise

I’m also waiting for some Ditko Mania books to come in via Rob Imes.

I’m also waiting for a truckload of SPY GUY #2 to arrive at the Ultraist Studios loading dock any day now.

A good month for comics.
