Fantastic Giants

In 1966, comic book artist Steve Ditko famously left his greatest creation, SPIDER-MAN, for reasons that have been much speculated on but never completely confirmed. He immediately found some respect at Charlton, the low-paying publisher he had also done work for since the fifties. Note the self-caricature in the center of this well-remembered reprint collection of monster stories by the now-legendary artist.


  1. One of the greatest comic books of all time!

  2. Interesting that Charlton, despite being low-budget, still had the rights for these two film properties, Konga and Gorgo (both from '61). Or then again, maybe they didn't have the rights but figured no one would notice.
