The Steve Ditko Omnibus, Vol. 1 ´ Collecting DC Comics tales from artist Steve Ditko co creator of Spider ManThis first volume features Ditko’s two DC series from the 1970s Hard to evaluate so uneven a collection of old comic stories This anthology collects the awful SHADE THE CHANGING MAN the expired before its time STALKER and a mess of shorts for various DC anthology titles SHADE is the comic that shows that Ditko could be a poor visual storyteller if only because the very strange concept sometimes made the art hard to decipher The stories are also repetitious and so full of fight scenes that the overall plot advances slowly Cancelling the title was a blessing STALKER restores one's faith in Ditko as a visual storyteller It is a twist of all the sword and sorcery clichés Oh the clichés are all there but the title character is unusual enough to sustain interest through the four issues of this uncompleted story The real value of this collection are the stories culled from the anthology titles Steve Ditko is a terrible writer and the few he wrote are subpar but those written by real writers are often fun stories and a few do not have predictable endings A bonus To break down the stars SHADE gets one STALKER two The anthologies two three and four with the overwhelming majority rating three ebook ´ ì Steve Ditko
