    He was an important artist, and so distinctive, that he's basically a genre of artist. RIP.

    The Master Planner Saga is the definitive Spider-Man story, with the five page opening of ASM 33 being arguably the most famous (for good reason) sequence in comics.

    One of his most underrated stories is Amazing Spider-Man 24 where Spider-Man thinks he's going nuts, a decent showcase for Ditko's style.
    Sincerely,

    There’s been a number of takes on the rubble lift but I thought Homecoming last year did a good job of adapting it.

    Here I am just celebrating England's World Cup Quarter Final win and then I see this ......

    ....


    Steve Ditko, along with Lee & Kirby had an impact on the medium of comics that we will never see again.

    I don't know what to say, he was a true artist and visionary and his alignment with Ayn Rand's Objectivism and rejection of fame made his legend all the more unique. More than anything he was a man of principle which you rarely see these days.

    .....

    R.I.P. Steve Ditko

    I didn't really know much about the man until I saw this brilliant documentary. Highly recommended if you're looking for insight on the talented individual that gave us the world's greatest superhero.

    Man, I just found this last week and watched it. Fascinating. Sad day

    What a day...England to the semis of the World Cup, but then this...

    Been a Spidey fan forever, set as a boy because of Stan's take that superheroes should still be like "the man in the street" with some ordinary problems, but visualised magnificently by Steve Ditko's truly weird and wonderful artwork...what an effect it had! As mentioned issue 33 was a masterpiece, unforgettable story/theme and revolutionary artwork!

    RIP Steve Ditko

    R.I.P Steve Ditko, one of the best artists of his generation and a rightful legend in the world of comics.

    May he Rest In Peace.

    He was a rare genius, a visionary illustrator whose quirky style initially put me off, yet couldn't get enough of it later. He was also an underrated plotter whose long-term storylines on Spider-Man, Doctor Strange and Shade the Changing Man never failed to make me want to read the next issue. I've also read thet he was responsible for other things like the Hulk's transformations being triggered by Banner's anger and that he created the Leader.

    As far as Spider-Man is concerned, apart from cocreating one of the biggest pop culture icons of our times, his original run with Stan Lee are some of the finest and most innovative american comics ever published.

    Wow. Truly sad news. I hope the next Spider-Man and Dr. Strange movies will give him a fitting send-off.

    Hopefully Marvel and DC will respectively have special events honoring him at the san diego comic con. yes it's "short notice" but there's really no excuse.
