Steve Ditko is one of the most innovative creators in the history of comics and an expert horror storyteller. Some of his earliest work was for Charlton Comics. The Thing and Outer Space titles. This would segue into a prolific contribution to Atlas Comics and early Marvel. Later, he would do lush, black-and-white stories for Warren’s Creepy and Eerie. At the same time, he continued creating mystery and horror comics for Charlton. The stories here were done soon after Charlton folded, and had they not gone out of business, these comics would’ve felt at home in their pages. So it’s kind of appropriate this collection is issued by Charlton Neo!

    “Steve Ditko’s Weird Comics” is a collection of his stories from “Monsters Attack!”, originally printed in 1990. Being that I’m a Ditko fan, I had to have this.

    What can I say? Where do I start? It’s Ditko! Buy it!

    Great colors by Mr. Mort Todd and the overall quality is pretty much, near-perfect. This book a good example of some of the best comic book storytelling in the history of the medium – written and drawn by one of the greatest masters in the history of medium!

    Seriously, if you’re a Ditko fan, this really ought to be in your collection. If you like Twilight Zone-esque comics and stories, pick this up. If you just want to read some really good comics, get this book.

    That being said, I’m really hoping Charlton Neo/ Comicfix provide some more Ditko books in the near future because if you’re a Ditko fan like me, it’s essentially a license to print money. Steve Ditko does beautiful work and the world deserves to see more!
