Strange Suspense offers page after lurid four-color page of Ditko’s weird monsters, rubber-faced crooks, and abstracted landscapes… The book is a white-knuckle trip through Ditko’s fevered imagination.” – The A.V. Club

"This book is chock-full of intense faces and monsters and colors. Strong blacks, horror comics, mean revenge, strange surgery…It’s all horror comics from before Fredric Wertham illegalized good-time comic books." – Vice

"The tales in this tome are sheer pre-Comics Code Authority horror, complete with stabbings, decapitations, mutilations, and disintegrations. …Ditko’s talent jumps off the page and one of the benefits of reading the stories in chronological order is seeing his art evolve and improve." – Rue Morgue

"This exhilarating collection of stories by the comic-book artist who co-created Spider-Man captures all the glorious chills and blood spills from the first two years of his career." – Entertainment Weekly
