BOOK PREVIEW

The Art of Steve Ditko



IDW and Yoe! Books announce
The Art of Ditko
Large format retrospective showcases influence of groundbreaking creator.

San Diego, CA (September 27, 2009) - Coming this November, IDW Publishing and its imprint Yoe! Books are proud to announce, The Art of Ditko, a beautifully designed, large format retrospective on the art and influence of Steve Ditko. Comics legend Stan Lee provides a glowing introduction, while P. Craig Russell, John Romita, and Jerry Robinson each offer their own insights into this enigmatic and incredible creator. In addition, The Art of Ditko introduces fans to the very best of Ditko's rare and striking work.

The Art of Ditko is the first book from IDW's new imprint Yoe! Books, and is edited and designed by Craig Yoe.

"I'm excited to show these rare stories that pull back the curtain on how Ditko pushed the comics medium's story telling techniques in radical, revolutionary ways that have been hidden by his steller co-creation of Spider-Man and Dr. Strange," said Yoe.
