Happy Birth Day #89 to Steve Ditko born Nov 3 1927 in Johnstown PA. Congrats on one more trip around the sun, sir! You have lived your life as you see one should.

Maybe one day I will also get back to Library of Congress to take in the original art to your first Spider-Man story from Amazing Fantasy #15 like my friend Steve Geppi got to do today. You made some most amazing comics in the history of out medium.

Here is one of my absolute favorite titles you worked on The Thing from way back in 1954 when I am sure you were still idealistic full of ambition as this wonderful work shows so vibrantly before mid 1960s comics "reality" beat you down also.
May Steve Ditko Live Long (Still!) and Prosper.....
