Working in the shadows of industry giants DC and Atlas/Marvel, Charlton Comics churned out enough titles from the 1940s-1980s to get its piece of the pie. A vital cog in the Charlton machine, prolific artist Steve Ditko figures prominently in this 1960s-1970s Charlton Silver/Bronze Age comic book lot of (32). Most famous for teaming with Stan Lee at Marvel to get the Amazing Spider-Man title off the ground, Ditko worked on many of Charlton's top titles, including the Blue Beetle and Captain Atom runs featured in this vintage collection.
