We also get our first look at the cover of the upcoming TALES OF THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER #16, and this hint of things to come:


Ordering details for THE FOUR-PAGE SERIES #7 are as noted in the scan above, or as always you can check this page. Snyder informs me that several of the earlier FOUR-PAGE issues are currently out of print (3, 4, 5), as are several of their earlier books.

--Link-- Ditko Double-Take Kickstarter ending

0 comments
Coming up on the end of the Ditko Double-Take Kickstarter for the next two Snyder/Ditko books, the all-new #22 of the on-going series and a 32-page "new and reprint" TALES OF THE MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER book.

Still no hint about exactly what that'll be, but I'll note that when Charlton briefly revived the title in the 1980s Ditko did do one new story in #15, an unused cover planned for a later issue that was shown in AMAZING HEROES and said to be slated for an issue of REVOLVER at Renegade, but not used there, although at least one other Traveler story did appear at Renegade.

Ditko in 2014 wrapup

0 comments
A pretty decent year for new and reprint Ditko in 2014. As usual, go here for the occasionally updated list going back to 2005.


Robin Snyder and Steve Ditko continued their publishing programs with three more of Ditko's 32-page series (#19 to #21), plus MR. A. #15 printing for the first time some stories done circa 1990 for an unpublished series. There were also two issues of Ditko's essay series THE FOUR-PAGE SERIES.

There were two issues of DITKOMANIA published during the year, #92 and #93.

Several notable reprints.

The Wallace Wood Estate licensed reprints of a few of Wood's major projects. The complete WITZEND includes the earliest Mr. A. stories, the first version of Avenging World and several short bits. CANNON includes Ditko's two stories from HEROES, INC. (printed two pages to a page to fit the landscape format they used for the bulk of the Cannon strories).

KILL THE FACE reprinted the three Ditko issues from the 1980s in colour for the first time.

Marvel had a bunch of reprints, mostly just reprinting stuff already available in multiple formats. There were also the usual pricey reprints of public domain material from various publishers.
