RIP, Steve Ditko.

Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Squirrel Girl. Steve Ditko was an extremely private person, and it is unclear if he had any family or loved ones.  But I will be a lucky man if I ever create something half as iconic as Spider-Man. That character is one of the images that they will remember from our era.  There are worse legacies to have; in fact, there aren’t that many that are better.

    Damn it. We were lucky to have him around as long as we did, but this still hits pretty hard.

    Considering I’ve seen Spider-Man come in at #1 for greatest comic book character of all time (same list had Superman #2 and Batman #3) … yeah.
