Five years before Steve Ditko began work on his now legendary
co-creations for Marvel Comics, the Amazing Spider-Man and Doctor
Strange, he was pro- ducing some of his best work in near anonymity
for Charlton Comics. Like its predecessors, Impossible Tales: The
Steve Ditko Archives Vol. 4 features over 200 meticulously restored
full-color pages of Ditko in his early prime stories that have
never seen a proper reprinting until now, thrilling stories of
suspense, mystery, haunted houses, and unsuspecting victims all
delineated in Ditko s wildly idiosyncratic, masterful style. This
fourth volume ranks as the best in the Archives series to date
thanks in large part to the inspiration Ditko took from comics
derived from the classic host-narrated radio shows, which gave an
extra oomph to his creepy yarns. Moreover, comics such as This
Magazine is Haunted and Tales of The Mysterious Traveler bore
witness to a veritable explosion in Ditko s ingenuity in terms of
manipulating the traditional comic-book page layout. This new level
of excellence also manifested itself in his work on other books,
such Mysteries of Unexplored Worlds, Out of This World, Strange
Suspense Stories, and Unusual Tales, all of which are amply
represented in this volume."
