It is a shame. I can't tell you how many times I've seen people posting on various forums that Ditko is retired and doesn't draw any more. They're always surprised when I point out that he's been releasing new work at a steady clip.
I'm sure there's any number of larger publishers who would be glad to publish Ditko's work, and could possibly get it more widely seen. But I assume that it's Ditko's choice to publish via someone he trusts, rather than go with a bigger outfit that might try to meddle with the work. If he cared about making a big splash, he'd just go back to Marvel and draw Spider-Man again.
Oh, and this is my first post to the group. Hello, everyone! :)

Last month I bought Acts 1 through 7 from Rodney S. and found them to be a
fascinating glimpse at the evolution of an excellent artist whose work I
have admired for forty years. But I'm curious about something.
Will Eisner's latter projects were greatly admired and disseminated widely,
as they should have been. Any new work from Joe Kubert is anticipated
throughout fandom, as it should be. Yet, when new artwork like Act 8 appears
from Steve Ditko, I feel like I'm a member of a secret society in even
knowing that it has been published. Why is it like this?

A nice enough book, but Ditko whould have devoted more
time to the dialogue. I know what he was attempting: to
use a verbal shorthand style of writing,
where just a
snippet of dialogue suggests what the characters are
talking about. But at some points, it's just confusing.
Still, though flawed, an entertaining issue. Ditko's art
is really pretty sharp.
