STEVE DITKO DEAD AT 90...
Just heard on BBC RADIO 4 news that STEVE DITKO was found dead in his New York apartment on June 29th, aged 90, though it's thought he actually died two days earlier. For those of us who grew up reading his SPIDER-MAN and DOCTOR STRANGE tales (published by MARVEL COMICS), it's a very sad time indeed, as well as an unwanted reminder of our own mortality. Steve, of course, did more than simply co-create the above-named two characters (with STAN LEE), but it's for them that he'll probably be best remembered. I'll leave it to others to go into more detail on the artist's life and career - suffice to say that his work and influence will live on.
