Stop promoting the fallacy that Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby had a "co-creator" at Marvel Comics. What they had was an editor. A capable editor, but that's all.
Even this article, which is largely sympathetic to Ditko, makes the mistake of calling him a "co-creator" of Spider-Man. And while I have nothing but contempt for the works of Any Rand (it's neo-Fascist bullshit), I was offended by the writer terming Ditko's Rand-inspired propaganda as "doodles".
|The Vulture: Classic Ditko villian. Embittered asshole tries to get even.|
|Nobody had done a cover like this since Jack Cole left comics.|
|I wonder, after issue #33 of Spider-Man...had Ditko already made his decision to leave?|
|Here, "Written" means edited. The stories were written and illustrated by Ditko.|
|Another great Spider-Man villain: The Sandman.|
|One of the best stories Ditko ever wrote. Equaled only by his "Master Planner" arc.|
|After Ditko left Marvel, no one ever created covers as dynamic as this one.|
|The final chapter of the Master Planner arc. Best superhero comic ever written (by Steve Ditko, not Stan Lee).|
