Eclipse Monthly #1 - Marshall Rogers, Steve Ditko art

Eclipse Monthly v1 #1, 1983 - The crowded cover displays several new characters, all drawn by their respective artists. Steve Ditko's Static is the result of an electrical experiment that goes awry. The hero's transformation scene is Ditko at his most visually arresting. In Marshall Rogers' tale, a boy invents a pair of futuristic sneakers. Cap'n Quick and a Foozle is fun, imaginative, and includes some striking special effects (see interior page below). In the tradition of Little Nemo in Slumberland, Rogers handles the kid genre surprisingly well. Other artists in this issue include Doug Wildey. This is number 1 of 5 Eclipse Monthly issues with Rogers art and/or covers and number 1 of 3 Eclipse Monthly issues with Ditko art and/or covers.

  1. While the writing and dialouge has its share of problems I thought this was one of Ditko's best work of the period. The costume design is another sensational, and I love the name.
