In honor of comic book legend and artistic icon, we talk about Steve Ditko’s life and his contributions to and creations of our favorite characters. Having passed away on June 29th at 90-years old, he is fondly remembered as the man who brought real emotions to faces, created the most ordinary and iconic of superheroes with Spider-Man, and brought us to new worlds in Doctor Strange. The impact of his work is still influencing storytelling and art in comics and other mediums today.
