Steve Ditko is one of the most innovative creators in the history of comics and an expert fantasy storyteller. Some of his earliest work was for Charlton Comics’ The Thing and Outer Space titles. This would segue into a prolific contribution to Atlas Comics and early Marvel, where he co-created The Amazing Spider-Man and Dr. Strange. These stories are collected from Steve Ditko’s run on Charlon Comics’ OUTER SPACE series released in the late 1950s.
