Steve Ditko RIP

Recommended Posts

I might toss John Romita Sr. in there, but since he wasn't one of the Marvel Founding Fathers, yeah, I think Stan's it.

I guess I'd throw in Larry Lieber. He's certainly not a big name, but he's credited as co-creator of Iron Man, Thor, and Ant-Man.

This is enormous. Not only did Ditko give us Spider-Man and Doctor Strange (as well as The Question, and Squirrel Girl, and Lord knows however many I'm not thinking of), but his storytelling and imagery were unmatched. I could look at his work in Strange Tales all day. Damn.

I don't know if I've lived through a greater loss from the comic book industry. I mean, I was alive when Kirby died but certainly was too young to know who he was. But in terms of Marvel architecture and levels of artist greatness, this is a gigantic loss. Everyone should watch Jonathan Ross' "In Search of Steve Ditko" right now just to get a glimpse of the talent that just left this Earth.

Lee and Romita are the only two icons from the Marvel Age still standing.
