ATTENTION

WE HAVE MADE A TERRIFIC MISTAKE IN OUR REWARD CATEGORY. 

THERE IS ONLY ONE $100 REWARD AND SOMEONE HAS ALREADY CHOSEN IT. 

PLEASE DO NOT CHOOSE THIS REWARD

MY APOLOGIES. 

Our new work, Tales of the Mysterious Traveler no. 19, celebrates the 60th anniversary of this unique title. 

 The Mysterious Traveler was initially developed by Robert Arthur and David Kogan for a radio series that ran on the Mutual Broadcasting System from 1943 to 1952. 

 The first issue of Tales of the Mysterious Traveler was published in 1956 by Al Fago and Charlton Press. It has carried the work of Vince Alascia, Henry Boltinoff, Fred Carrillo, Steve Ditko, Joe Gill, Dick Giordano, Rocke Mastroserio, Bill Molno, Charles Nicholas, Paul Reiman and others. For our special number we will feature cover to cover material by Snyder and Ditko. 

 The book is near complete. 

 We only need compose the editorial pages. This is where we will record the names of you who Pledge and thank you for your support. 

 Once upon a time it was the practice of publishers to accept and publish mail. Readers had the opportunity to comment on the material and see their letter, their idea, their artwork and/or their name in print. Most publishers have given up on this idea. But in the pages of Tales of the Mysterious Traveler, there is one more opportunity for the reader to see his name in print.

  Readers often ask for more details about the contents of our books. We prefer to play our cards close to the vest. Many critics, reviewers and television hosts love to reveal the many elements of a book or movie. One fellow on Turner Classic Movies, in his introduction, discussed the plot of a George Sanders mystery in detail and then topped himself by revealing the name of the murderer. We could follow in this pattern.

  But.

  We won't. 

  So for those who are anxious, curious, here is what you need to know about our work… 

  We believe we have produced the best issue ever published in this series and we are pleased to invite you to join us for this anniversary celebration. 

   For. 

   Tales of Suspense, Decision and Justice. 

   in The 60th Anniversary Number

   of 

   Tales of the Mysterious Traveler. 

   by Snyder and Ditko.

  While you are waiting, you might turn to YouTube and listen to an early episode of the radio series.

  For much more, we direct you to our Biography elsewhere in this Campaign. 

Regards,

Snyder and Ditko

Risks and challenges

WE HAVE MADE A TERRIFIC MISTAKE IN OUR REWARD CATEGORY.

THERE IS ONLY ONE $100 REWARD AND SOMEONE HAS ALREADY CHOSEN IT.

PLEASE DO NOT CHOOSE THIS REWARD

MY APOLOGIES.

The one unique challenge we always face is in filing your orders in a timely manner. We were able to move at a faster clip when we were working for Archie, Charlton and other publishers because we had editors, production men, secretaries and others in back of us. Now we are on our own and moving at a slower pace.
We have been here in Kickstarter for a few years and have worked out most of the wrinkles in distribution. We expect to deliver your Reward on time, on schedule.
Can we do it?
Remember your Aesop: Slow but sure wins the race.
