By the way, Fanta has just gone back to press on BBB, which we're thrilled about. I was thinking this morning that the two artists we've published of late with perhaps the most "heat" at the moment are Dash Shaw and Steve Ditko. Which then reminded me of Dash's unpublished Dr. Strange strip (see below), and inevitably led me to one conclusion: that really, Marvel Comics should give Dr. Strange to Fantagraphics. Marvel doesn't know what the fuck to do with him. Give him to us and we'll start an ongoing Dr. Strange anthology with new work by Los Bros, Dash Shaw, Daniel Clowes, Kim Deitch, and other longtime Ditko fans, and include reprints of the classic Ditko Strange as well. Joe Quesada, it is your moral duty to make this happen.
Blake Bell is the subject of Tom Spurgeon's weekly interview feature this morning, and it might be the best (and longest) interview with Blake that I've read yet. If you like Ditko, a must read.
Our pal James DC hosts a 1 hour special round-table discussion about Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko. James talks with comic book artists Brendan McCarthy and Steve Marchant and the author of the book, Blake Bell.
The show premieres 5pm - 6pm GMT, Thursday 31st July on Resonance 104.4 FM (London) / Globally streamed at www.resonancefm.com
The show will also be available for podcast/download a few weeks after airing. Check www.resonancefm.com for more info. We'll do our best to remind you when it happens.
Blake Bell is taking readers "behind the scenes" of the production of his book, STRANGE & STRANGER: THE WORLD OF STEVE DITKO. There's a couple of interviews so far, and many more on the way - including scans of the entire notebook of Cat Yronwode's interview with Ditko's brother Pat back in 1983. Whoa!
Here's two recent podcast interviews with STRANGE & STRANGER: THE WORLD OF STEVE DITKO author Blake Bell. First up is BlogTalkRadio and second is FanboyRadio. If you like Ditko, you must listen. There are no shades of grey here.
