Today is the 80th birthday of one of the greatest comics artists, Steve Ditko. Here are a few of his covers from my collection, including two from one of my favorite Ditko creations, Beware, the Creeper:

I have to agree, the Creeper was pretty much Steve Ditko's Zenith in Character design wasn't it?

I mean, look how *simple* yet brilliant that costume is in it's colors and form! Steve obvious knew the Kraven mane was a masterstroke, but it needed just that final *touch* of color differention to make it stand out correctly.

the first 38 issues of Spider-man > the first 38 issues of anything else.
