In Search of Steve Ditko- BBC Documentary

Excellent BBC production hosted by Jonathan Ross...I absolutely adore the Alan Moore interviews....

I've been a HUGE Ditko fan since discovering his work as a child in the Marvel reprint title Marvel Tales during a period in the early 1980s in which they were reprinting the entire Lee/Ditko run of Amazing Spider-Man....

Marvel Tales is where I came in on Steve Ditko's Spidey, but I'd found a couple of Machine Man comics early on, and was a ROM reader for the last year of the title, about the time of the Marvel Tales.

I read about this documentary; possible spoiler alert, but there's an admission by Stan that seems to suggest far more Ditko influence in Spidey that is generally acknowledged.

I was introduced to Blue Beetle #5 as arguably the best, most straightforward allegory of good vs. evil and their definitions---for Ditko, that's saying a lot.
