Upcoming Ditko - Mr. A. and #26

0 comments
Robin Snyder updates us that coming up later this year is #26, continuing the series of 32-pagers Ditko has done over the last decade, and more Mr. A.

Also of note, MR. A. #18 from last year is already out of print, so if you're wanting a copy best get it soon from any of the retailers who might have it, and don't dawdle on getting the other recent books.

Also out of print are all of the FOUR-PAGE SERIES essay collections.

Upcoming (and not) Ditko - New projects and clarifications

0 comments
Robin Snyder updates some of the upcoming projects, with MURDER #22 and THE HERO COMICS #23 from the latest Kickstarter on track for June (someday I have to sit down and figure out exactly what books logically fill in the numbering on that series, which I believe begins with the 1973 MR. A. #1).  Along with the regular monthly THE COMICS newsletters from Snyder (and you never know when Ditko will pop up in there) the autumn should see some more releases, including more Mr. A. and "the surprising return of an old character".

Meanwhile, it looks like the recent announcement of a hardcover Mr. A. collection coming out in October was a bit premature, and the book will not be coming out. I should have some more about that soon.

Edited to add,

"The Avenging World has been cancelled and will not be published. We have decided to work on other projects. We will continue to work on our own."

Mark Evanier reports the passing of Martin L. Greim.

Greim published COMIC CRUSADER and COMIC CRUSADER STORYBOOK from 1968 to 1977, which included a considerable amount of Ditko's independent work of the era, including several Mr. A. stories and the "H. Series" stories featuring D. Skys and The Screamer.  He also created his own comics, including David Manning - The Defender (seen below) and Thunderbunny.
