    Steve Ditko, co-creator of Spider-Man and creator of Dr. Strange among many other heroes and villains has died at age 90. He was a very reclusive man: honorable, hard working, and exceptionally intelligent. I was lucky to have met him in person and spend time with him; phone chatted and exchanged a few letters, too. I also got to do finishes over his work a couple times, which is one of the biggest highlights of my comics career. One of the true giants in comics history who was a big inspiration to me, and an influence to me and my work. Lots of others can say the same thing. RIP Sturdy Steve.

    Very sad. Another icon passed. I heard a rumor a week or 2 ago but it wasn't confirmed. My favorite Spider-Man and Dr. Strange artist. Steve Ditko, RIP.

    Going to reread ASM 33 tonight. My favorite Ditko layout ever. Now, to pick the right pipe and blend.

    Scroll down a bit to the second story and you can see one of the Ditko stories I did finished art on.
