Remembering The Legendary Steve Ditko

Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada said in a statement, “Only a small group of individuals can claim that they have affected and redefined not just an industry, but popular culture worldwide. Steve Ditko was one of those few who dared to break molds every time his pencil and pen hit a blank sheet of paper. In his lifetime he blessed us with gorgeous art, fantastical stories, heroic characters and a mystical persona worthy of some of his greatest creations. And much like his greatest co-creation, Steve Ditko’s legend and influence will outlive us all.”

 

 

The current big-screen Spider-Man, Tom Holland, released a statement on his Twitter that read, “We all want to leave our mark on the world – this guy crushed it. He made so many people so happy and changed lives – most of all, mine! Thank you Steve – your life lives on man, thank you.”

 

 

The world lost an extremely talented man, but it’s better for having him in it for all of these years. RIP Steve Ditko, and thank you for¬†leaving your mark on the universe!
