Ditko Monsters: Gorgo! is a hardcover collection of all of the issues of Charlton Comics' comic series Gorgo that Steve Ditko worked on, as well as two of the three issues of the comic's spin-off miniseries The Return of Gorgo. It was released by IDW Publishing on March 19, 2013.


The genius artist Steve Ditko is a towering monster of awesomeness, and so is the character he chronicled... GORGO! If you love Godzilla — and who doesn't — you'll love Gorgo, who ravages London, New York City, and HOLLYWOOD! Gorgo goes head to head with the British Navy, atomic bombs, Communists, and aliens from the planet Corpus III! This is the complete Ditko Gorgo, 200 pages of comics, including six pulse-pounding covers all drawn during the height of Ditko's prowess concurrent with his Spider-Man and Dr. Strange creative explosions. Scripts are by the fan-favorite writer Joe Gill. Introduction by Eisner Award winner Craig Yoe with fascinating insight into the comics and the monster movie that inspired them. Every page is lovingly restored and the book is a large format hardcover to showcase the monstrous Ditko art.
