I've been waiting for what seems like a lifetime for someone to write the definitive book on the talented Steve Ditko and with this brilliant tome Blake Bell has succeeded beyond anything I could have hoped for.
In case you didn't know, Steve Ditko is one of the greatest comic book artists ever, being most famous for co-creating, along with Stan Lee, Marvel Comics' Spider-Man and Doctor Strange. But, as this book shows so brilliantly, Ditko has done so much more in his illustrious career.
Reading this book you realise that no matter what you may think of his political views and personal philosophy, there has never been anybody, including Will Eisner, Jack Kirby and Frank Miller, with quite the artistic vision of the reclusive Mr. D.
Although Ditko has shunned interviews in recent years and has stated many times that his work should speak for itself, I, for one, am extremely glad that Mr. Bell found the time and inclination to put this book together. So to anyone with even just a passing interest in comics and comics' history I cannot recommend this book too highly - BUY IT NOW!!
