An unpublished short story from comics master artist, Tom Sutton has come to light, and InDELLible Comics and Amazing Things Press has published it in Tales From the Tomb #1. The story was uncolored and unlettered, so the team of David Noe and Kevin Halter had to finish this lost gem from Charlton Comics fave, Tom Sutton. “This sort of opportunity doesn’t come around often,” Noe said, “I can’t believe I get to ‘work’ with an icon that I enjoyed as a kid, but who passed away years ago!” The artwork for the complete story came up at auction and was brought to InDELLible Comics by a Dave O’Dell. Tales From the Tomb #1 is available now on Amazon.
Comics Legend Lends Character
Introduced in Charlton Premiere U1 in 1967, The Shape was a humorous character created by Roy Thomas and Richard “Grass” Green. The child-like shape-changing being created by a mad scientist, languished for years after Charlton’s dissolution. However, comic’s legend and Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Famer Roy Thomas (Wolverine, Vision, Luke Cage, Ms. Marvel, Iron Fist, Man-Thing, Morbius, Ghost Rider, Invaders, Defenders and many more), granted use of the character to InDELLible Comics for their all-humor issue, Crackajack Comics #1. The story is written by David Noe and illustrated/colored/lettered by Andy MacPhee. This is the first time the Shape has been used with permission since the character’s creation. Crackajack Comics #1, published by InDELLible Comics and Amazing Things Press is available now on amazon.com.
Creator and Co-creator of some of the best known and loved comic book characters, comics icon, Steve Ditko (Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Creeper, Mr. A, the Question and many more), also owned many characters he created, including the cult favorite, Killjoy, a (usually) mute hero who always spoils the crooks’ plans. Appearing first as backup stories in Charlton Comics’ popular E-Man comic, Killjoy was later used a few times in Ditko’s creator owned comics. Upon his passing, InDELLible Comics was granted permission by Ditko’s estate to use Killjoy in Crackajack Comics #1, marking the first time the character has not been done completely by Steve Ditko. Killjoy was written by David Noe and drawn by Truman Vasko and Andy MacPhee. Crackajack Comics #1, published by InDELLible Comics and Amazing Things Press is available now on amazon.com.
