A little over a week ago Rob Imes released the 85th issue of Ditkomania. It is available to order now from here (you can also subscribe).
It has the broad theme of Black and White magazines which oppitimises the work of Steve Ditko; mainly is work at Warren publishing .
As usual the print quality is superb and is matched by the level of writing submitted by a variety of fans. The covers also are excellent; by Martin Hirchak (front cover) and Javier Hernandek (back cover).
