    Steve Ditko at his wackiest – all of his best concepts are at about 45 degrees to "normal" comics.

      I've generally considered his "Odd Man" to be his wackiest, but it didn't get the chance to develop — not even as far as The Creeper did. All in all, The Creeper remains my favorite of Steve's creations, and the first two covers (the Showcase debut, printed above, and the first issue) are high on my top 40 list.

    Of all the characters he created for DC, Creeper seems to be the one they've brought back the most. He even got an action figure from the Batman animated line.Giffen's revamp added a nice little twist to the origin. Yatz' drug had a hallucinogenic side to it as well, which is why the Creeper was a bit off. And when he switched the matter thingy off, the drug (and its effects) would vanish as well.

    I've always thought of the Creeper as a precursor to Ambush Bug. One of those super heroes that senses they are in a comic book.

    I loved the idea of the Creeper, even as a child. Did not like the recent Steve Niles version though,
