Steve Ditko Space Wars TPB (2005) comic books
1st printing. Story and art by Steve Ditko. This collection of artist Steve Ditko's finest comics includes a wealth of sci-fi work done prior to his world-shaking creation with Stan Lee, Spider-Man, Ditko's eclectic, sometimes surrealistic art proves both futuristic and retro as he takes readers into the cosmos to find star-crossed lovers in the backstabbing debacle, "Dead Reckoning." Then, the deadliest space ship in the galaxy hovers menacingly over readers while invaders demand complete surrender in "The Conquered Earth!" These, plus "The Creature from Corpus III," and "The Juggernauts of Jupiter" are just a sampling of the pulse-pounding tales featured in this book. Softcover, 8 1/2-in. x 11 1/2-in., 144 pages, B&W. Cover price $16.95.
