I’ve just been reading the Steve Ditko Archives Vol 1 : Strange Suspense this week. 

Tremendous range; horror, crime, science-fiction, super-hero, excelling at capturing the ‘man in the street’ as you'd often notice in Spider-Man, whether it was Peter Parker with his high school friends, at The Bugle, or at home with Aunt May, contrasting with Kirby's more OTT style elsewhere.  Great imagination as well, as I can see in the 50s collection mentioned above, in his Marvel pre-hero stories, and especially in Dr Strange’s other-dimensional surreality.

A very sad loss of one of the greats.
