    RIP Steve Ditko. He was not just a great artist, he was also a great storyteller. I am glad he lived to see Spider-Man and Dr. Strange become successful movies

    RIP. We have lost a true legend. "If This Be My Destiny" (and really the entire Lee/Distko run of ASM) are classic examplars of the absolute best visual storytelling.

    Steve Ditko was by far one of my all time favorite artists in all of comics. IMO, Spider-Man has the best looking superhero costume out of every other superhero because of the amazing amount of detail that was stylized by Steve Ditko. Of course, I will always hold his original Spider-Man run alongside Stan Lee to the highest regard. I respect the fact that despite all of the fame and fortune that came with Spider-Man, the man still stayed true to himself.

    RIP, Steve Ditko and thank you for your contributions to the comic genre.

    RIP to a legend.

    Every creative run on Spider-Man post-Ditko, even the best of those runs, have all been facsimiles of the genuine article.

    Ditko's Spider-Man stands alone.

    The unique looks of Steve Ditko's characters, Spider-Man is the standout with Green Goblin and Doctor Strange with THAT artwork of his. Thanks and RIP.

    Nothing can beat time,unfortunately and it's sad to lose such talents,even in old age. Ditko's impact in comic book industry is unparallel. He is the co-creator of one of the most iconic super-heroes(two,if you count Dr Strange) and let's not forget that he created iconic DC characters as well,like the Question.

    RIP mr Ditko,you earned the only immortality we have, the artistic one.

    Ditko's visuals brought some vitality and even a dose of reality to my comic book escapism. You felt when Peter overcame something, ended an issue on a crushing heartbreak or an exhilarating victory. It was one of the two extremes each time. While there is the iconic "If this Be My Destiny", everything before that, the "book length epics" set the tone and the heart for what was to come. Very few have replicated that to a fine science, Lee and Ditko's are the ideal gateway to the world outside your window and into the personal and extraordinary life of one such hero in it.

    And of course Squirrel Girl goes from strength to strength now...at least Steve lived long enough to see her achieve mainstream relevancy, as well as see Spider-Man and Doctor Strange achieve theatrical successes multiple times over.

    He will be missed, and he will also be revered. A private man who helped weave a world of heroes with real struggles to the public.

    RIP

    Well this was really sad news to wake up to. Today I'll pick my ASM and Dr Strange omnibuses off the shelf and do some reading in his honour. RIP Steve Ditko.

    Terrible news, now the two icons are gone, maybe Steve and Jack can entertain other spheres with their talents.

    Rest in Peace Mr Ditko, and my deepest gratitude for your work.

    Gutted, Steve helped to create many of my favourite heroes and villains in comics, including my arguably fav bad guy ever, Doctor Octopus. My Ditko ASM omnibus is one of my favourite comic purchases from the last ten plus years ago, so I will open it up again in his honour.
