From Paper Romance to Logan the Loser: 75 Years of Steve Ditko

The Steve Ditko blog, which promotes Ditko’s most recent work published with Robin Snyder, has posted two pieces of artwork from the creator, who died this week.

The first is the first page of Paper Romance, published in 1953 in Daring Romance, thought to be the first published Steve Ditko comic book story.

And the second, Steve Ditko’s final page of Logan the Loser, the final story in the 26th issue of the SD Publishing comic, available for $4 here.

That’s a 75-year span of professionally continually creating comic books — something of a record. And these are worth remembering as well as his comparatively brief stints for Marvel and DC Comics.
