ROBIN SNYDER AND STEVE DITKO are entering their 27th year of publishing.

Your continuing support of our work here has brought us success with six titles:
  The Ditko Public Service Package #2
  Laszlo’s Hammer
  #9 Teen
  #20
  Mr. A. #15
  #2oww1

  Now come two more 32-page books.
   #22, and
  Tales of the Mysterious Traveler 

  Yes, something different this time. Will you help us bring these 2 unique titles to market?

  The former is an original title containing all-new features including another story of The Madman, a fresh perspective on The New Celebrities, another exciting adventure of Ditko’s Hero plus still more. What do you think of the cover to this title shown here?
  The latter contains new and reprint material featuring a very early character in stories and artwork with the Ditko touch. The Mysterious Traveler was originally heard on radio on the Mutual Broadcasting System, was published in a magazine and also a comic book. We are pleased to bring this character to you again (it has been 30 years since our previous issue) but are keeping mum regarding the cover and contents. 
  These books are near complete. The covers and all story and art pages are finished. We need only to complete work on the editorial pages of each book that will include your recognition and support.
  There will be no delay. These books will be published and delivered to you without excuses.
  We will print and release these titles with your good Contribution and will appreciate any and all support.

  Look to About You for further details about you and us.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges of this project are in finding enough of you to support this unusual production. The material is complete and ready to go. All we need now is your go-ahead.
If and when we succeed, this will make eight books you have helped us bring to market. We have worked out most of the bugs in the production and mailing of your Rewards and look forward to seeing and reading of your reaction to these new titles.
