Here's what I'd like to call a Charlton Cancelled Comics Cavalcade expanded edition, featuring a rare, unpublished Blue Beetle comic book. How awesome!
|Steve Ditko's incredible concept art for Blue Beetle's suit!|
Don (Phantom, Return of the New Gods) Newton provided the wraparound cover for the Charlton Portfolio, with Bob (Iron Man, Freemind) Layton inks. It's a great publication & highly recommended.
|Still looks awesome, even in black & white!|
"B.B. Meets The Specter"
Steve Ditko cover for previously unpublished Blue Beetle #6.
"A Specter Is Haunting Hub City"
The Blue Beetle faces the Specter, a robber in a suit that makes him almost invisible.
Plot & art by Steve (Liberty Belle) Ditko with script by Steve (Aquaman, Creepy, Eerie) Skeates (as D.C. Glanzman.)
|Outstanding publication featuring Blue Beetle, Captain Atom & The Question!|
Sometime after this story the Blue Beetle aids the heroes of the Multiverse in their crusade against the Anti-Monitor in Crisis On Infinite Earths #1-3, 6, 7, 10-12. This is his next official appearance after this unpublished story.
|An ad run in Judomaster #98, for the unpublished issue of Blue Beetle.|
Live Large My Friends!
|Ah, what might have been! But even six issues would have run short, of what we'd have wanted to see. |
