A Grave Report

Remember that request I made for a DC Showcase volume collecting Steve Ditko's horror/fantasy/sf shorts for The Many Ghosts of Dr. Graves and other Charlton books? Well, Bob Wayne of DC gave me the bad news: DC only has the rights for the superheroes from the Charlton line, and not the horror/fantasy tales.

If anyone does have the rights, this would be a great project to get out there in the marketplace! Ditko's short stories often featured some of his best work; he seemed genuinely inspired by the Twilight Zone-esque twist ending tales. Reading through the Marvel Amazing Fantasy Omnibus left me wanting much, much more...
