Vandaag is het trieste nieuws naar buiten gekomen dat Marvel Comics legende Steve Ditko is overleden op 90 jarige leeftijd. Hij de grote man achter Spider-Man en Doctor Strange en mede bedenker van een rij aan beroemde villains die uit zijn gedachten en pen vloeide. Zijn werk heeft grote invloed gehad op mijn comics smaak en met mij vele miljoenen andere comic nerds en liefhebbers. Dit is ook goed terug te zien in de vele Tweets die nu rond gaan en een aantal uit de 'industrie' kan je nu hier terug lezen.


Artist Steve Ditko, who co-created Spider-Man and Doctor Strange with Stan Lee, has died at age 90.

The New York Police Department confirmed his death to The Hollywood Reporter. No cause of death was announced. Ditko was found dead in his apartment on June 29 and it is believed he died about two days earlier.

In 1961, Ditko and Lee created Spider-Man. Lee, the editor-in-chief at Marvel Comics, gave Ditko the assignment after he wasn't satisfied with Jack Kirby's take on the idea of a teen superhero with spider powers. The look of Spider-Man — the costume, the web-shooters, the red and blue design — all came from Ditko. Spider-Man first appeared in Amazing Fantasy No. 15. The comic was an unexpected hit, and the character was spun off into The Amazing Spider-Man. Ditko helped create such classic Spider-Man characters as Doctor Octopus, Sandman, the Lizard and Green Goblin. Starting with issue No. 25, Ditko received a plot credit in addition to his artist credit. Ditko's run ended with issue No. 38.

In 1963, Ditko created the surreal and psychedelic hero, Doctor Strange. The character debuted in Strange Tales No. 110, and Ditko continued on the comic through issue No. 146, cover dated July 1966.
