On His 79th Birthday the Isotope Says
"Steve Ditko, Could We Love You More?"
No matter what book Steve Ditko put pen to paper to create, his unique art style with its uncluttered detailing, its surreal head-trip inspired visuals, and its moody portayals of dramatic tension can't help but capture every fans imagination everywhere.
In fact, without Steve Ditko, there would be no Isotope! Because it's a true fact that each and every time a preteen James Sime tried to quit reading comics because "I'm too old to be reading funnybooks anymore," it was always a Ditko comic book that made that young James realize that no matter how many years he lived, he would never be too old to keep reading comics.
Today this incredible man, whose creations include beloved comic greats like Spider-Man, The Question, Hawk and Dove, Mr A, Shade the Changing Man, The Creeper, Blue Beetle, and Dr. Strange, is turning 79.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Ditko. And thank you.
