FANTAGRAPHICS BOOKS & JIM HANLEY’S UNIVERSE PRESENT
THE WORLD OF STEVE DITKO: SAT., JUNE 7

Fantagraphics Books and Jim Hanley’s Universe are proud to present a very special event on the evening of Saturday, June 7, to coincide with Fantagraphics’ appearance at the 2008 MoCCA Arts Festival.

Join noted Steve Ditko scholar BLAKE BELL for the world premiere of his eagerly-anticipated book, STRANGE & STRANGER: THE WORLD OF STEVE DITKO, along with an exclusive screening of Jonathan Ross’s acclaimed BBC documentary, “IN SEARCH OF STEVE DITKO.” Bell will also give a powerpoint presentation and talk on Ditko’s work and career and answer questions from the audience.

Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko is the first critical retrospective of Steve Ditko, the co-creator and original artist of the Amazing Spider-Man. The book explodes many of the myths of Ditko’s career, and presents reams of rare and unpublished Ditko artwork. All at once, the book functions as a biography of the artist and an examination of his work (spotlighting over 300 images) with commentary on what makes Ditko one of history’s greatest sequential storytellers. Following the June 7 premiere, the book will be widely available in stores later in the month.
