At 90, a good long run.  A lasting legacy.  What a life.

Even the best Artists, the greats have their own shelf life sadly. Another Legend is gone.

Like Jack Kirby, Ditko was a legend not just in comics but in the medium as a whole. Respect due and paid.

RIP Steve Ditko. Alongside Stan Lee and Jack Kirby one key creators of the Marvel Universe as we know it today. I true visionary with a unique creative view.

A legend indeed, and I'm especially sad that I've only heard this news on comics-based outlets - the due came up with Spider-Man and Dr Strange for F's sake! These are characters known literally around the world.

BBC at least did this:

It's possible Radio 4's obituary program Last Word might feature him on Friday 16:00 (repeated Sunday 20:30).

Clive King of Stig of the Dump fame. Must re-read it as I have very fond memories of this book.

I had no idea he was still alive!  (Well, until today, I suppose.) Stig of the Dump was brilliant, I don't know how many times I read it as a child but I still remember the story in detail.

That's one I had to double-check before believing, it having been the setup for many a punchline in the past (the punchline involving difficulty in getting the coffin into the ground).  There's also been recurring hoaxes (seemingly always about him rather than his brother).
