In Strange Avenging Tales, you’ll find a re-working of Ditko’s Charlton character The Question, reconfigured as The Baffler – for copyright reasons, we speculate. Also some short crime stories, a little bit of surrealism, and some satirical social commentary. Personal opinion: Some of the best Steve Ditko artwork we’ve ever seen, and the black and white format really showcases his sense of composition and rendering.

The second issue promised in the back of the book never happened, so don’t beat yourself up hunting for it!
