Is there anyone here who remembers The Avenging Mind, the beginning of The 32 Series? We have come a long, long way since we published that title. It featured "Toyland", Ditko's analysis of the Marvel editorial idea that comics characters are toys and "These toys are meant to be broken...They're meant to be thrown against a wall, smashed together, and built back up again."
His vigorous rejection of that idea was followed by a number of articles dealing with creation, credit and style in Marvel history. This original book concluded with the introduction of two new characters, The Hero and The Villain.
Rather than Smash Spoil Kill, we have been building, developing surprising new ideas, characters, features and titles.
Here in Campaign no. 22, we are publishing Book no. 58. A unique excursion Down Memory Lane with Snyder and Ditko.
Risks and challenges
As always, we are faced with the matters of acceptance, deadline, timing, packaging, mailing, promotion and more. After 20 successful campaigns, we have sorted out all the bugs in this process so that we can promise you a real, finished book, on time, on schedule, without any last-minute problems to delay us and you.
As in our earlier campaigns, this material is complete and ready to go to the printer but for the editorial pages which are in draft form. Herein we acknowledge your support and name you as one who has helped us in this production.
