The legendary comic book creator Steve Ditko (co-creator of SPIDER-MAN, creator of DR. STRANGE, THE QUESTION, MR. A., THE MOCKER, STATIC, THE MISSING MAN, THE CREEPER, and so many other classic characters) turns 90 years old today.  Ditko is still producing comic books on a regular basis.  The 26th issue of his most recent ongoing series was released just a few days ago.  If you would like to order a copy of this comic, simply click HERE.
If you would like to know more about Ditko's lengthy--and often controversial--career, I suggest taking a look at Jonathan Ross' excellent 2007 BBC documentary entitled IN SEARCH OF STEVE DITKO, which can be seen directly below....

Also highly recommended:  DITKO UNLEASHED by Florentino Florez and Frederic Manzano (IDW, 2016), a well-written, insightful Museum catalogue that accompanied a comprehensive exhibition of Ditko's work in Palma de Mallorca, Spain in the Fall of last year.
