Steve Ditko and longtime editor and collaborator Robin Snyder are celebrating 26 years of publishing with the planned release of #9 Teen, a new comic from the legendary creator. They just need a little more help on Kickstarter.
While details about the 32-page comic are sparse, Snyder reveals it includes another installment of Ditko’s Madman serial, “plus a unique variety of some of the most original characters in the comics and more.” This marks the duo’s third Kickstarter project, but the first to feature new material.
According to the Steve Ditko Comics fan blog, #9 Teen will be the 19th 32-page comic that Snyder and the 86-year-old Ditko have released since 2008.
Snyder, who was Ditko’s editor at Charlton Comics, Archie Comics and Renegade Press, states on the Kickstarter page that there’s just one editorial page left before the comic is complete. With 19 days left in the campaign, they’ve raised $1,560 of their $2,100 goal.
