Steve Ditko, Mr. Media Interviews

Steve Ditko

Steve Ditko is a mystery. And in view of the cosmic and ethereal manner of his comic book art style, from Spider-Man and Dr. Strange to the lesser-known Mr. A, that may be appropriate.

Blake Bell, whose interest as a fan of Ditko earns him the right to be called a “Ditko scholar,” isn’t buying the mystery. In his new book, Strange and Stranger: The World of Steve Ditko — just published by Fantagraphics — Bell digs deeper and more thoroughly into the enigma that is Ditko and shares all that he has learned about the artist and the man.

In this beautifully illustrated coffee table book, Bell lays out his case for Ditko as a comics legend. And he does his best to get behind the myth and the man.
