In Search Of Steve Ditko

Despite Jonathan Ross, strongly recommended.

Stan Lee is famous as the author of the Spider-Man stories, but the man who designed the characters, illustrated the comics and came up with many of the storylines, co-creator Steve Ditko, is virtually unheard of. In this documentary, Jonathan Ross, a lifelong fan of Ditko’s work, hopes to tell his story.

Comics historian Peter Sanderson said of the documentary: „A knowledgeable comics aficionado, Ross infuses the documentary with his passion for Ditko and American Silver Age comics. The show has an amazing roster of interviewees [including Jerry Robinson, John Romita Sr., Neil Gaiman, Joe Quesada, Ralph Macchio, Flo Steinberg, Alan Moore, Mark Millar, Stan Lee, and Cat Yronwode.] … Wittily and intelligently written, without a trace of condescension towards comics, this program is a model of what documentaries about comics should be like.“
