Inspiration for future comic book artist.
1 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a big Steve Ditko fan. I love his work. I was first introduced to Steve Ditko's work when the Philadelphia Inquirer gave out old Spider-man comics. Along with Spider-man, I love most of his creation. I love the Question, I love the Creeper,I love Dr. Strange and I love Hawk and Dove. I think that this documentary was very interesting. While they tried to interview Ditko, we learn that he tends to cut himself from the outside world. Doesn't do interviews and is rarely seen. Which is really sad, because it would be nice to hear his side on Spider-man's creation and at times it sounds like he can be a jerk. One of my major complaints is that they did not mention Captain Atom and Blue Beetle II. Those were major Steve Ditko characters and like the Question was the inspiration to Rorschach. Captain Atom and Blue Beetle II were inspirations to other Watchmen characters like Dr. Manhattan and Nite Owl II. Overall this is a pretty good documentary and I would recommend it to both comic book and non comic book fans.
