    Yeah, this one hurts. He really was an icon and such an important part of comic book history.

    I adored those early issues of Spider-man as a kid.

    Cool piece on Ditko's Charlton Comics work (which I happen to really like and which I think is really underrated).

    I love his Charlton work. I only checked it out a few years ago due to the Watchmen connection, that and Dr Strange are my favourites of his.

    His work on The Question for Charlton was super ahead of its time and kind of set the precedent for some of the harder-edged vigilante comics that would follow.

    I need to check out Mr. A, I hear it's The Question without the industry restrictions of the time.

    I've heard the same thing and never read it. It doesn't look like it's currently in print unfortunately.
