Michael D Hamersky On Comics Mentions The...  
KickStarter Campaign For
DitkoMania #91!
 TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3877 -    This KickStarter Campaign was brought to my attention by Jackie Estrada, who posted it at her Facebook page.
I have previously review blogged DitkoMania back on June 21st of 2009 on issue #73. (See photo to the top right for that issue's cover.) 
I wasn't aware of this KickStarter Campaign so there are only a few days left before it is over!
This is what the campaign is about:
This is for the new issue of the fanzine devoted to comics artist Steve Ditko. This issue focuses on Speedball and other bouncing Ditko heroes!
The print copy of DITKOMANIA #91 will be at least 32 B&W pages (possibly more depending on the contents) and will focus on Speedball and other bouncing characters of Steve Ditko (such as his obscure Mr. Quiver, who has only appeared in two stories).

The issue will also have a long letters section from readers reacting to the previous issue of Ditkomania (#90, "Ron Frantz Remembers"), including a letter by Cerebus creator Dave Sim.

The fanzine is printed on a photocopier, and hand-folded and stapled by me. I number each issue individually (with a red ballpoint pen) on the front inside cover. The covers are printed on cardstock paper.

If this Kickstarter campaign is successful, I will have a COLOR cover on the printed copies of Ditkomania, which would be the first time I've done that before.  The front cover was drawn by Javier Hernandez and colored by Fester Faceplant.  The back cover (featuring Speedball) was drawn by Tom Ahearn and colored by Mort Todd.

Depending on this Kickstarter response, I may consider using a print-on-demand type printer (instead of a photocopier) to print the issue, if pledges are significantly higher than my goal amount.
Thanks for reading the above.  I am suggesting that you take a close look at this KickStarter Campaign and then contribute! 
BTW, Ditkomania also has a Facebook Fan Page!   ~Michael
