Description
A brilliant graphic artist and comic book innovator, the co-creator of Spider-Man and Dr. Strange, and an inductee into both the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame and the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame, Steve Ditko is also famously reticent to compromise or explain his work, and has often walked away from his own successes. Remarkably, Blake Bell has managed to create a substantive portrayal of Ditko through this beautiful retrospective of his career, with vivid reproductions of color covers and pages, ink work, sketches, and enlargements that reveal the intense psychological layers of Ditko's work, his unparalleled stylistic flourishes, and his adherence to the Objectivism of Ayn Rand.

"Ditko's life, like that of R. Crumb or Harvey Pekar, has enough obsessive oddity and outside struggle to be a tale told wide. But Bell goes the opposite direction, getting as narrow as the lines Ditko used to restrain the action in the old Marvel and Charlton comics."LATimes
