Ditko has long been thought of as the J.D. Salinger of the comics world. He has not given a formal interview since the 1960s — and even back then, he would often respond to a journalist’s questions via mail. Only a few public photographs are known to exist of him, the last taken in his dingy Hell’s Kitchen studio 53 years ago. He lives a rigorously private life, refusing to appear in public, to autograph work or to take a casual snapshot with a fan, should one somehow manage to track him down.I became a Spider-Man fan because of Steve Ditko's art and Stan's writing. I've always wanted to talk to Steve, but understand that I probably never will.
More's the pitty.
