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.
"I'm excited to show these rare stories that pull back the Replica Watches curtain on how Ditko pushed the Omega Replica 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.
"A handsome new book!"
--Dennis Drabelle, The Washington Post
"Craig Yoe has dug up never-published artwork, artifacts, and letters that will bring Herriman to life for the uninitiated while giving fans something new to feast on."
--Chris Nichols, LA Magazine
"Yoe's affection for the subject and its creator is clear from the loving attention to detail found from cover to cover."
