Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

Steve Ditko is a brand name. It's not what I'm like that counts. If a person knows the what and whys, he knows all about the 'who' that is important to know. See more »

Trivia:

In the late 1990s, Marvel Comics began looking at developing existing works of literature as graphic novels. Ditko was asked to illustrate a graphic novel of Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged. Ditko declined, stating that he did not want his interpretation of the appearance of the characters to overshadow the readers' imaginations. See more »
