In the post published on the social network of Lee you can see the great creator of comic stories sitting on a sofa with sunglasses. By giving the play a sad voice, he pays homage to the legacy left by his co-worker Ditko, who died at 90 years ago a month ago.
“I can not let the week go by without commenting on Steve Ditko”, Lee is heard in the clip of just a minute and a half. “Steve was undoubtedly one of the most important creators in the comic book business, his talent was indescribable.”
“I worked with him for many years and he always impressed me how he saw everything in terms of photos and images and movement and scenes,” Lee continues. “He told a story like a film director would.” The video concludes with the following statement: “I am sure that a lot will be written about him as time goes on and I will be one of those who bought the first book, He made a great impression here in the world.”

In the 1960s, Lee and Ditko collaborated on Marvel to create some of the most enduring comic characters in pop culture, including Spider-Man and Doctor Strange. Ditko was responsible for many of the most iconic details we associate today with Spider-Man, from its spider web handles to the red and blue suit. The artist also had the ability to create colorful adversaries, in fact, he was responsible for (among others) Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin and Sandman.
