    R.I.P. Steve Ditko

    Steve Ditko, co-creator of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange has passed away at age 90.

    Another legend gone. I'm sad I never got to meet Mr. Ditko to thank him for his contributions to comics and pop culture, especially since he was also a native of my hometown.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Ditko.

    How sad. He was such a huge influence in the comics industry and provided some of the most iconic visuals.

    Sad news, but not unexpected - this is definitely the loss of an artistic icon.

    I wasn't around when the original Spider-man comics came out back in the 1960's, but did read these original issues when they were reprinted in Marvel Tales, back in the early '80's. Ditko's art was unique & refreshing. Also enjoyed the work he did on Dr. Strange & all of the other numerous comics he drew over the years. It was also cool to see Ditko's art pop up in unexpected places occasionally; the handful of issues he drew of The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones (also back in the 1980's) were some of my favorite stories of that short-lived series.

    Spider-Man was my very first Marvel hero I really got into during the pre-SW days, particularly watching the entire '67 cartoon run. To this day, my favorite villain is Mysterio, so looking forward to seeing him in the upcoming film. Thanks for the memories.

    Rest in Peace. One half of the creative duo behind one of my favorite fictional characters of all time.
