The Big Eight Oh for Ditko!

Happy Birthday, Steve!

Beyond beyond...

Blogs to be bookmarked-
"Beyond the Groovy Age of Horror" features an interview with Richard Sala as well as some great scans and synopses of pulp novels.

"Datajunkie" (discovered by Nick) does some analysis of the work of Steve Ditko, Gil Kane, Wally Wood and Jack Kirby. It takes a while to load but it's worth it.
