Growing up, I always loved finding one of Ditko's early Marvel monster tales reprinted in titles like "Vault of Evil" and "Tomb of Darkness." R.I.P.

RIP Mr. Ditko.  One of my top two favorite comic artist/creators.

PS: Ditko drew 41 issues.  AF 15, ASM 1-38, Annuals 1 &2.
Strange Tales Annual 2 was drawn by Kirby & inked by Ditko.

Just saw this and it hit me like a ton of bricks, even though I've been expecting it for years now. One of THE Greats has passed. Rest in peace Steve Ditko. You will never be forgotten.

Sad news indeed.

Ditko was one of the all time greats.

I admire him and his magnificent Dr Strange and ASM work.

RIP.

Ditko brought so much to the table and had so many aficionados who thought he was the best. He was comics' classic eccentric, avoiding the limelight while beguiling his fans. Even though so few people got to meet him, his presence will be hugely missed. RIP.

He is my all time favorite artist and half responsible for the greatest run in comics history.  He was a master at conveying different expressions on the faces of the people he drew.  I always thought his work had a ton of depth to it.

my bad - I did not look at the Marvel database and was going by what is in the comic book realm website. That information did not break it down by story but the overall contributors to the annual 2. I was confused by his other work in the same book being pencils and them listing him as having done pencils and ink.

Thanks for the correction-- makes sense that Kirby was the main artist for that issue because the Torch was the focus of the book and he was doing most of the early Torch ST stories.
