You Can Help Ditkomania

The artwork of Steve Ditko is a treasure that comic book fans appreciate. To spread the word, Ditko fan supreme Bill Hall published Ditkomania #1 way back in 1983; I feel a strong connection to the fanzine because I have been collecting it and submitting drawings to it since 1984. The publishing reins passed to Rob Imes in 2008, and I've written previously about how sharp the publication has looked under Rob's direction.

Rob was putting out the issues with amazing regularity, until recently. For financial reasons, the time between the release of consecutive issues has increased. This week Rob announced not that he is giving up the endeavor, far from it! Instead he has started a Ditkomania Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to help pay for the publication of the next issue. Rob may also run a Kickstarter for successive issues and I salute his tenacity.
