Early artwork from Spider-Man artist Steve Ditko highlights this anthology of Western reprints. Mostly known for his contributions to the Marvel Universe with characters such as Spider-Man and Dr. Strange in the 60s, Ditko’s involvement with other genres often doesn’t get recognized. A Lone Ranger knock-off, Masked Raider, is also resurrected in this nostalgic flashback, presented in black and white instead of color, the way these strips were originally published. The book doesn’t place the stories in their historical context, but the pencils of legends like Ditko and Jack Davis are easily recognizable.
