I just wanted to let everyone know that the new issue (#88) of DITKOMANIA has been released. The issue was printed up on Monday morning, and was mailed out to all subscribers and contributors on Tuesday and Wednesday.
This issue's theme is Ditko's work internationally -- how his comics were reprinted outside North America, as well as how readers outside the USA became Ditko fans.
The new issue also has a review by John Linton of the "Steve Ditko Archives Volume 3, Mysterious Traveler," the most recent Fantagraphics collection of 1950s Charlton reprints, edited by Blake Bell.
Plus an essay by Jason Sacks on being a fan of Ditko, a "Ditko in Your Future" page about upcoming Ditko items, and the usual engaging letters page.
All this for only $2.50 (including P&H) in the USA. International rates, as well as subscription rates and more ordering info, can be found at http://www.ditko-fever.com/dmreturns.html
There's also a preview of the front cover of Ditkomania #88 at that URL. Check it out to see a weirdly altered Mr. Dedd (host of Charlton's Ghostly Tales) as he appeared in a 1970s French comic (top left panel on the cover)!
