    Default Steve Ditko has died

    https://www.newsarama.com/40707-stev...way-at-90.html

    A very sad day as one of the true legends of the industry has passed away at the age of 90.


    Besides co-creating Spider-Man and Dr. Strange for Marvel, he also created The Question, The Creeper, Captain Atom, Ted Kord, Punch & Jewelee, Shade the Changing Man, and Hawk & Dove to name a few.

    I feel terrible because I had no idea that he was still alive. May he rest in peace. He created some of the best characters ever.

    Right there with you. I didn't know he was still alive. But now, learning he has died, I feel gutted. He was brilliant. RIP, Mr. Ditko.

    Steve Ditko has always remained a sort of enigma among comic book creatives, in no small part to his very private nature (though his personal philosophy is known and well-implemented into some of the characters he created), but his immense contributions to the genre, both from a stylistic, story, and character standpoint, is a testament to his impact.

    RIP Mr. Ditko.

    There would also be no Watchmen if not for the Charlton characters he created.
    Good Marvel characters- Bring Them Back!!!

    RIP Steve Ditko. He was not just a great artist, he was also a great storyteller. Some of his DC creations such as The Question, Captain Atom, Ted Kord were actually former Charlton Comics characters

    Steve Ditko, I feel like those first 10 issues of Amazing Spider-Man are arguably the best superhero comics ever. I know it’s not fair, but I almost feel like after Ditko, there is no other Spider-Man run I need to read.

    Finding Steve Ditko from the BBC is a must watch Documentary!

    Call the man a legend and a pioneer and it actually seems like an understatement. RIP Mr. Ditko
