Description

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Mr. A., IDW partners with the character's sole creator to present a two-volume hardcover series collecting his first half century. Produced in tandem with Steve Ditko and Robin Snyder, this fully authorized, oversize hardcover edition will showcase the singular vision of Mr. A. in deluxe form, as he and his creator truly deserve.

Steve Ditko's career in comics began in 1953, and along the way, he created and co-created some of the greatest, most lasting, and original characters in comics history. Ditko introduced his character Mr. A. in artist Wally Wood's publication, Witzend, in 1967.

Mr. A. is actually newspaper reporter Rex Graine, whose uncompromising principles and Objectivist philosophy led him to adopt the crime-fighting persona of Mr. A. This will be the first time all fifty years of Mr. A. stories have been collected en masse.

Ditko was inducted into the Will Eisner Awards' esteemed Hall of Fame in 1994.
