Doc Ü The Creeper by Steve Ditko ´ Steve Ditko

E Creeper this strange new hero battled the villain known as Proteus and fought alongside Batman and The Justice League of Americ This is a book that never really turns the corner It just keeps chugging along at the same speed every issue It's like every story has the same story and it's not a particularly great story Then halfway through there's a reboot It gets a little better but not by much Jack Ryder is a real jerk It's not particularly fun The Creeper has great visual design but virtually nothing else about the character is interesting

The Creeper by Steve DitkoZed crime made him a target Mortally wounded by the mob Ryder was saved by a scientist whose serum granted him super powers As Th This collection reprints all the Ditko Creeper stories from his initial run and his revival as a back up feature and including one story never before published It's interesting to see the dynamism and exuberant fun of the original run get cramped and reduced in the shorter back up features where Ditko is fairly clearly not knocking himself out any in contrast to the original run The stories are competent enough but unspectacular typical superhero fare for the time
