Steve DItko Doesn’t Stop: A Guide To 18 Secret Comics By Spider-Man’s Co-Creator

Untitled-1

He is one of the original Marvel architects. He is a legend of American horror comics. His works directly inspired one of the most enduring products of the graphic novel era. He was present for the birth of the indie superhero comic. He was among the first generation of comic book fans to become comic book professionals.  He is revered, he is despised, and he would be glanced upon askance, frequently, were he agreeable to public exhibition of himself, which he is not.

He is Steve Ditko, aged 85.  He has been drawing comics for over half a century.

And in the past five years alone, he has written, drawn, lettered and co-published eighteen issues of original comic books -- over 500 pages of completely new art -- which almost nobody has read.

Let me tell you all about it.

2-fa49259466-1371488807

Like many Marvel characters, Spider-Man's relationship with his parents is a tragic one. That said, his parents' lives aren't really explored in depth very often, at least not recently. But Marvel is taking a new look at Richard and Mary Parker, as the publisher has announced Spider-Man: Family Business. Written by Mark Waid and James Robinson and illustrated by Gabrielle Dell'Otto, Family Business focuses on Peter Parker learning more about his deceased spy parents, and discovering that he has a long lost sister.In an interview with USA Today, Waid described the tale -- which will see Peter go from New York City to Monte Carlo to Cairo -- as a "spy" story. It kicks off with the Kingpin attempting to expand his criminal empire, which leads to Peter Parker, the son of former CIA agents, finding himself under attack. As he's attempting to figure out what's happening, a woman in a convertible pulls up in front of him, and claims to be his long lost sister Teresa.

‘Mighty Avengers’: A Step Forward For A Publisher, A Change In Tone From An Editor

51b211aa4fc63

 

After days of teaser images from Marvel hinting at some kind of new series, this morning the publisher finally announced a relaunch of Mighty Avengers. Written by Al Ewing with art from Greg Land, the new series features a team led by Luke Cage, with Falcon, White Tiger, She-Hulk, Spider-Man, Blue Marvel, Monica Rambeau (now named Spectrum), a new Ronin, and the new Power Man as members. Notably, the team is comprised mostly of heroes who are people of color and/or women.

Mighty Avengers has been championed by Executive Editor Tom Brevoort, who in the past has gone on record as describing the idea of an Avengers team comprised of all or mostly black characters as being "contrived," but now says, "people who are interested in these characters and want to see heroes that reflect them have a genuine point."
