The meet for Cornwall Graphic Novel Group is happening on Saturday 29th, 2pm in Loading. Last month, I managed to persuade the group that we should talk about Steve Ditko and one of his oddball characters – Creeper. And that’s what we’re gonna do.
Those who know me, know that I absolutely love Ditko’s character – Creeper, but also that I’ve only read a certain selection of comics about him: the original Ditko issues from the 60s and 70s, plus the mini-series put out in 2006. The character has, of course, appeared in more comics than just that, but he’s never had a really long run.
Of course, being a fan of the character, I’d love for him to be brought back by DC during the New 52 shizzle, but I also know that the character of the Creeper/Jack Ryder would need to be treated carefully in order for it to work. And yes, that does mean that I have ideas for how it could be plotted well, but I’m not about to dump those on people.
Instead, why not watch In Search of Steve Ditko.
