His greatest character.

Steve Ditko has died at the age of 90 and amid all the tributes and appreciations, one thing goes without saying: Spider-Man was his highest achievement — an enduring legacy and pop-culture juggernaut. (Whether he liked it or not, I suppose.)

Below is a selection of 13 COVERS featuring one of comics’ greatest heroes by one of its greatest creators. (For a look at Ditko’s DC and Charlton work, click here. Doctor Strange? Click here.)

Ditko’s unused Amazing Fantasy #15 cover. Later used for ASM #700.

  1. Truly iconic stuff. I love the cover to 19 especially, and I am in awe of the wonderfully writhing anatomy and bodily interplay on 29 (I am reminded of Gil Kane’s genius work!).
