Ditko Monsters: Konga! is a hardcover collection of all of the issues of Charlton Comics' comic series Konga that Steve Ditko worked on, as well as one of the three issues of its spin-off miniseries Konga's Revenge. It was released by IDW Publishing on September 10, 2013.


The genius artist Steve Ditko is a towering monster of awesomeness...and so is the character he chronicled — KONGA! If you love King Kong — and who doesn't — you'll love Konga! Konga battles dinosaurs, mole men, undersea monsters, creatures from beyond space, and the evilest threat of all — the human race! This is the complete Ditko Konga, a whopping 302 pages of giant purple ape comics, including eight pulse-pounding covers, all rendered during the height of Ditko's prowess concurrent with his Spider-Man and Dr. Strange creative explosions. Scripts are by fan-favorite writer Joe Gill. Features an 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.
