New and Upcoming Ditko - MR. A. #15 and others

0 comments
To catch up some...

Now available from Robin Snyder is MR. A. #15.  This contains two new Mr. A. stories, "The Best Deal" (20-pages) and "Exploder" (11-pages), that Ditko originally intended for the first issue of a MR. A. series solicited but unpublished by AAA circa 1990, the front and back cover for that issue and a classic Mr. A. page first seen on the back cover of the 1973 issue of MR. A.

To anticipate the inevitable question, I do not know the exact reasoning for the "#15" designation, but will note that the following 14 prior publications contained at least one original story featuring Mr. A. (many others contained single page Mr. A. features):

WITZEND #3 [1967]
WITZEND #4 [1968]
COMIC CRUSADER #6 [1969]
COMIC CRUSADER #7 [1969]
GRAPHIC ILLUSIONS #1 [1971]
THE COLLECTOR #26 [1972]
COMIC CRUSADER #13 [1972]
SENSE OF WONDER #11 [1972]
MR. A #1 [1973]
MR. A #2 [1975]
COMIC CRUSADER STORYBOOK [1978]
STEVE DITKO'S 176-PAGE PACKAGE HEROES [2000]
DITKO CONTINUED... [2009]
OH, NO! NOT AGAIN, DITKO! [2009]

And I thought I had posted about it before, but apparently not, so I'll just mention that #20 (or as I still like to call it, "#SNAKE FACE") is also out, with Miss Eerie, The Cape and more. It also announces the next book in the series, which appears to be called #2oww1 and will feature The Outline, The !? and The Grey Negotiator. THE FOUR-PAGE SERIES might have some more issues, and while I can't say for certain that more Mr. A. is in the pipeline, I will note that Ditko kept the "Coming: The Origin Of Mr. A." blurb on the last page of "The Best Deal".

--Link-- MR. A. Kickstarter by Snyder/Ditko

0 comments


The newest Kickstarter from Robin Snyder and Steve Ditko, for a MR. A. project, is now live until August 20, 2014. $2300 goal, well on the way to that already. Note that unlike the last few Kickstarter projects, this one does have international shipping as an option, as well as an option to be listed in the acknowledgements for a nominal pledge without directly ordering the book, if you prefer to get it from another source.
