STEVE DITKO'S CREEPY AND EERIE...
The title? Dont worry - I'm talking about his work, not him.
Amongst the several companies that STEVE DITKO drew for
after leaving MARVEL was WARREN, who produced black and
white 'horror' mags like CREEPY and EERIE. This fantastic book,
which I purchased from my local FORBIDDEN PLANET store
today (although it came out last year), contains all 16 of Sturdy
Steve's stories that he did for the two mags.
Ditko really pulled out all the stops on these tales, applying
a grey wash on some, and extra detail on others, and one can only
wonder what SPIDER-MAN might've looked like given the same
treatment. If you're a serious fan of Ditko, this is definitely one book
you should have in your personal library. Priced at a very reasonable
£14.99, nip down to your local FP at the earliest opportunity and
grace your bookshelf with this handsome hardback volume.
In the meantime, here's a taster of the delights
waiting within its paranormal pages.
