Dripping with Fear: The Steve Ditko Archives Volume 5

Blake Bell

From the legendary co-creator of “Spider-man” comes Cold War tales of mystery and suspense, circa 1958. In the fifth volume of the “Steve Ditko Archives,” the cartoonist’s angular, severe artwork heightens the uncanniness of stories about mermaids, mad scientists, and alien invasions. These pages from Charlton comic books such as “Strange Suspense” and “Out of This World” haven’t seen print for more than half a century, and the meticulous color restoration gives Ditko’s evocations of chilling yarns a startling clarity. Dripping with Fear is the perfect vitrine for Ditko in his early prime.
