If you want to be a legend in the comics world, then you should create characters that people admire, or hate, or want to follow. Steve Ditko was one of the best, co-creator of Spider-Man and Doctor Strange with the much better known Stan Lee.
He also worked on one of my favourite characters when he moved to DC – Blue Beetle. Awesome. He did few interviews and kept himself out of the spotlight, but now is his time to get a moment in the light. So long, Spidey!
