He was the initial artist on Spider-Man, although he is perhaps best remembered for his run on Dr. Strange, for which many hold him to be the definitive artist.

He was 90 years old, and his body was found after his death in his apartment.

I posted this in rassf late on Friday:

Steve Ditko (1927-2018)

Steve Ditko, noted Objectivist cartoonist, creator of Mr A and The Question, and co-creator of The Amazing Spider-Man and Dr Strange, Master of The Mystic Arts, is no longer among us.

I'd say he's facing eternity, but:

A) He dreamed up Eternity

B) As a Randian, Steve probably wasn't expecting an afterlife.

For DC, Ditko created The Creeper; Hawk and Dove; Shade, the
Changing Man. He did a lot of work for Charlton Comics and
the "pre-Fantastic Four" Marvel/Atlas books, many of them SF and
Fantasy oriented. At Charlton he worked on a rebooted Blue Beetle
and on Tales of the Mysterious Traveler. He also co-created Captain
Atom, featured in SPACE ADVENTURES and STRANGE SUSPENSE STORIES.
