FREE PDF ↠ BOOK Steve Ditkos Monsters ☆ HANNAHREDHEAD Ð The genius artist Steve Ditko is a towering monster of awesomeness and so is the character he chronicled GORGO If you love Godzilla and who doesn't you'll love Gorgo who ravages London New York City and HOLLYWOOD Gorgo goes head to head with the British Navy The genius artist Steve Ditko is a towering monster of awesomeness and so is the character he chronicled GORGO If you love Godzilla and who doesn't you'll love Gorgo who ravages London New York City and HOLLYWOOD Gorgo goes head to head with the British Navy atomic bom It's merely okay In my opinion the original Gorgo movie is an enjoyable example of the 60's giant monster genre This tie in comic series tends to re hash the movie's plot over and over in different locales In the second issue the US Air Force nukes New York City in an unsuccessful attempt to kill the monsters Weirdly no one seems to be terribly bothered by that We're also subjected to several Cold War Red Menace scenarios and some racist primitive savage natives stories If you're a fan of Steve Ditko's early work you may enjoy it I'm not much of a fan so it generally fell flat for me other than historical interest

Bs Communists and aliens from the planet Corpus III This is the complete Ditko Gorgo 200 pages of comics including six pulse pounding covers all drawn during the height of Ditko's prowess concurrent with his Spider man and Dr Strange creative explosions Scripts are by Ditko's stories from the run of comics based on the movie monster beginning with the adaptation of the film The same problem that besets all giant monster as protagonist stories is evident here there is only so much you can do with a basically mindless monster as protagonist The adaptation of the film has some decent visuals though the narrative is pedestrian apart from the innovative maternal aspect of it The second story is basically a do over of the first Then we move into a series of stories focused on a changing cast of cardboard human protagonists the unlikely couple coming together as a result of monstrous encounter gimmick is particularly overused than on Gorgo and his mother Ditko's art is all that makes these stories memorable and it's not generally his best work It's workmanlike to be sure but most of it lacks the flair of Ditko's best efforts He doe manage to make Gorgo look amusingly silly several times which I have to think was deliberate and perhaps a subtle comment on the silliness of the enterprise nutty movie maker decides to shoot a film using the real monster; nutty dictator decides to enslave the monster to consolidate his power; nutty alien frog creature tries to use the monster to destroy humanity etc I do like that unlike many Yoe books this one presents the work in a sensible order And I also like Yoe's aesthetic of aiming to preserve the original look of the comics warts and all rather than trying to improve them via restoration Probably a good investment for Ditko fans not so much for anyone else

EBOOK Þ ä Joe Gill

Steve Ditkos Monsters Vol 1 The fan favorite writer Joe Gill Introduction by Eisner award winner Craig Yoe with fascinating insight into the comics and the monster movie that inspired them Every page is lovingly restored and the book is a large format hardcover to showcase the monstrous Ditko art This Godzilla ripoff is fun for a while but soon runs out of interesting stories How many times can you smash the world after all? In some of the later stories Gorgo is of a supporting character for a variety of science fiction romance and adventure stories Still the art by Ditko is worth seeing although I wish the publisher had recolored it a little better; it retains the somewhat sloppy separations from the originals
