STEVE DITKO'S CREEPY AND EERIE...
The title? Dont worry - I'm talking about the work, not the man. 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 a local comicbook store today (though 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 comics shop right away and grace your bookshelf with this handsome hardback volume.
In the meantime, here's a taster of the delights waiting within its paranormal pages.
