History of Steve Ditko in Comic Book Art

Steve Ditko began working in the comic book industry in 1953, providing artwork for the story Paper Romance in Daring Love #1, published by Key Publications. After that Ditko started inking for Joe Simon and Jack Kirby on various projects and freelanced for Charlton Comics, beginning with the cover of The Thing #12.

In 1954, he co-created Captain Atom with writer Joe Gill, who first appeared in Space Adventures #33. In 1955, Ditko started drawing for Atlas Comics, which would later become Marvel Comics, with a four-page story, entitled There'll Be Some Changes Made in Journey into Mystery #33.

The popularity of his first story led to Ditko contributing many more stories to titles like Amazing Adventures, Strange Worlds, Tales of Suspense and Tales to Astonish.

Stan Lee created the concept of Spider-Man in 1956 and asked lead artist Jack Kirby to draw him; however he was dissatisfied with Kirby's rendition, and turned to Ditko to try his hand at the new super-hero's look.

Lee was pleased with Ditko's aesthetic and he began regularly drawing the character. Spider-Man first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962. The issue was a top seller, prompting the character to have its own series, The Amazing Spider-Man.

Lee and Ditko collaborated on the plots and together they created some of the superhero's most beloved antagonists, like Doctor Octopus, the Sandman, Electro, the Lizard and the Green Goblin, all within the first fourteen issues.

Beginning with issue #2 of the series, Ditko also made his mark on Marvel's branding itself by inserting a small box on the upper left-hand corner of the cover. It showcased a picture of Spider-Man's face along with the company logo and the sale price. Lee was such a fan of the visual that he standardized it for all issues of Marvel comic books for decades to come.

Ditko also created the character Doctor Strange in Strange Tales #110. By the late 1960s, Ditko left Marvel to work for Charlton Comics, DC Comics and Warren Publishing on a variety of titles through the 1970s before returning to Marvel in 1979.

Ditko won eight Alley Awards and one Eagle Award during the 1960s all for his work on The Amazing Spider-Man. In 1990, he was inducted into the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame and was later inducted into the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994.
