Much like my opinion of Jack Kirby, I’ve spent most of my comic reading career disliking Steve Ditko. Over the past few years I’ve gotten past the things that I disliked – which were all aesthetic issues – and realized the genius of both of those creators embedded in their art. It also doesn’t hurt that Ditko created my absolute favorite superhero ever, Ted Kord – The Blue Beetle. I’m also pretty fond of Captain Atom and The Question, though not necessarily Ditko’s visions of those characters.

Anyhoo.

I like drawing adult superheroes as kids.

    Is that “The Question” on the left, with the hat? I’ve never heard of him before but he looks really cool. I like that he has no mouth or eyes.

    ps. I found a really cool comic book shop, here in Vegas, today called Velvet Underground. I think I’m going to visit them every Monday at lunchbreak, it’s right down the street from my work.

    That is indeed The Question.

    Does Lou Reed work at that store?

    After doing some research I got your Lou Reed joke. At first I thought he might be related to Mr. Fantastic but that’s just ********.
