Comics Legend Steve Ditko

Probably most famous for being one of the creators of Spiderman (along with Stan Lee). He recently passed away at the age of 90 from what they call natural causes. I like comic art and he had a unique style that I found appealing. After you geek out on comic books you start to recognize certain artist’s style, some good, some bad.

Yes, he did some Thor stuff

But what I really like was his early art

  1. wtfits

  2. my daughter likes some of the comic stuff – but only the lazy, follow them with your eyes on the tube variety.
    i watched dr strange, ant man, deadpool, and a couple others with her.
    dr strange is good and i thought deadpool was actually quite funny

  3. I only liked this because I don’t know anything about it and I’m a rebel that way. I’m almost like Antifa. Antifa + H2 = Hantifa Or Hostages + Antifa = Hotifa

    *Holds up fist in black glove wearing a face mask while drinking a soy latte*

    Damn it, I just spilled my latte when I raised my hand with it.

  4. did you get burned mare?

  5. I think Hotifa is the stage name of the tranny in Jam’s arch picture the other day.

  6. As kids we used to buy comic books off the spinner rack when we stayed at rented beach cottages. I always went for the horror comics since they were self contained (I hated jumping into a story without knowing what happened before and finish the issue without a conclusion). Since they were 25 cents we’d just leave them at the cottage for whoever rented it next. Now the average comic goes for $3.99. No wonder the average kid has no interest in reading comic books anymore.

  7. I only read Spider-Man for Hobgoblin. I thought he was a great villain, and I liked his style.

  8. Mornin’ Hostifarians.

  9. I was going to use Hotifa as my stripper name but I see that I have competition.

  10. I will beat that tranny bitch in a strip off.

    I have some furniture that needs some refurbishing so that’s perfect.

  11. Here’s a homegrown tranny bitch that’s heading for the big time

    Leaving college to act in movies about fitting in with “feminist vampires”. Seems like a legit long term plan.

  12. ‘Feminist vampires’ sounds like the worst possible monster until you think about ‘NAMBLA werewolves’.

  13. He/She is someone who deserves our sympathy and understanding for dealing with a mental illness. Being compelled to celebrate her “bold stand for her rights” nauseates me. All the editorial pages in Maine have chronicled this story for years. Ima let you guess what side of the story their opinions fell on.

  14. LP guy from RH Foster is here filling the tanks. Rowan is making sure we know that he’s here. Over and over and over again.

  15. There is a shit ton of mental illness in this world.

  16. Maines was also the subject of the New York Times best-selling book “Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family” by Amy Ellis Nutt.

    The Transformation of America, you mean. That’s the goal, right?

  17. People in the South have a saying for that: Bless Her Heart.

  18. Now the average comic goes for $3.99. No wonder the average kid has no interest in reading comic books anymore.
    I bet there is an economy of scale thing influencing it.

    wakey wakey

  19. I watched that little clip from “Royal Pains” – how long until these “women” start demanding that they’ve always had a uterus. You just can’t see it.

  20. Prices started to rise on comics when they became collectibles. Just like baseball cards.

  21. You’re all queer.

  22. That’s my primary interest in them now Jay. Most of the older comics I buy are older, graded ones with potential resale value down the road. The newer ones are either speculative for future value or just a collection to read and eventually trade back for store credit. I fully realize that making a profit off of them requires a greater fool to purchase them in the future but my non-taxable retirement funds are maxed out, I pay extra on my mortgages and have an emergency fund so it’s a hobby/investment. Now, let me tell you about my plan to make millions off of rare Bordeaux wine …

  23. People in the South have a saying for that: Bless Her Heart.

    His heart. Don’t participate in madness.

  24. If she wants to call herself a girl, fine, at least he appears to be a girl. There are others that aren’t quite as feminine.

  25. Pretty sure the same actor – or someone remarkably similar – was on L&O:SVU at one point as a transchick who’d murdered someone and it was incredibly tragic that someone with a penis had to go be in a prison with other men.

  26. Pretty sure I’d choose women’s prison too.

  27. It’s been a long time since I’ve watched any of the L+O’s. Which is a shame since it’s on all the freaking time when I’m flipping through the channels. For exactly this reason “…it was incredibly tragic that someone with a penis had to go be in a prison with other men” and countless other examples in the same vein.

  28. I watch SVU on the spin bike.

  29. I cannot stand any of the L&O shows. Complete Leftist brainwashing BS.
    They lost me forever when I saw Munch (Richard Belzer) say to some black teen that was discriminated against “on behalf of all my people, I apologize to you” – or something very close to that tripe.

  30. They can be very leftist, but there have been times they have presented the conflicting truisms that tear about the leftest ideology.

    Besides, it’s a perfect amount for spinning.

  31. Belzer is supposed to be sort of a nut.

  32. I never got into comic books. Except for the occasional Mad magazine.

  33. I lost a great*X uncle in the civil war, fighting with the Michigan regiment. He was young, could have had kids, didn’t live to do it. I might have 100+ family members, with all the wealth, joy, and connections that could have come with that family. My family missed out on all of that over the last 150 years.

    No apologies. Price paid. You’re welcome.

  34. Modern comic books are a SJW infested shitshow with poor art.

  35. My BFF as a kid literally had two regulation footlockers full of comics. Mostly Weird War & Sgt Fury stuff, he had more than the footlockers would hold (they were all over the place in his room) and most of them were 60’s era books.

  36. Never could afford comics. Which is why I’m mostly lost on all the current movies.

  37. Whoever changed the comment prompt left out a question mark.

  38. I visited my cousin Tere close to 20 years ago and when her husband learned I read comics showed me his collection. They had a big modern style house in Orlando and he had a big closet full of long boxes of 50’s, 60’s and 70’s comics from his youth. He was a military brat and when the family was on Okinawa he inherited several books from GI’s heading to Vietnam. When it came time to head back to CONUS his dad balked at the cost for shipping the comics along with the family furniture. There was probably about 500 pounds (?) of books. His dad finally relented and all those years later he was sitting on a nice little retirement fund.

  39. I love the crying on the left these days.

    Anyone else love watching them cry like babies?

    ——-

    Nailed it.

    Do these morons understand the incredible personal and national loss during these wars?

    FU, you’ll get nothing and like it.

    Also, you’ve sucked enough out of the system to be paid in full many times over. Go somewhere else if you’re not satisfied here.

  41. Anyone else love watching them cry like babies?

    Salt mining threads are a treat.

  42. You know what’s ballsy? Stephen King commenting on Ted Cruz’s looks.

    Stephen King could star in one of his own nightmare books.

    They truly believed that Obama was the end of history. They believed that their power was secure forever.

  44. There’s a Twitter account called Beverly Hills Antifa I think. It’s a parody account and shows various soy bois and the “women” they associate with in the wild. It’s pretty f’in hilarious.

  45. Stephen King could star in one of his own nightmare books.

    He was perfectly cast in Creepshow.

  46. “Whoever changed the comment prompt left out a question mark”
    how long is a china man

  47. .

  48. you all switch back over to the H8 to talk shit about mare again?

  49. “Anyone else love watching them cry like babies?”

    i’m really kind of waiting for them to get froggy enough to start really rash shit…

    hteir crying is kind of like prelude music

    they really think they are right…
    and they’re not introspective at all – tis a bad combo – akin to ordering the seafood sampler @ Freddies CornDogs&Fries, Agra, KS

  50. Sonofa…

    Just got a call from the State of Michigan wanting to set up an interview.

  51. one of us…
    one of us…

    one.

    of.

    us.

  52. Is that in Lansing?

  53. haha, love it when posts disappear on AOS. more than half the comments are about the missing thread, and not about the content. It’s like being in jr. high.

  54. Wonder if Alex was there when Stormy got arrested in Columbus.

  55. YEA MICHIGAN!!!

  56. I turned them down. The interview would have been on the 25th of July, and I want to have the job situation aquared away before then.

  57. I believe that it was in Lansing.

  58. Ha ha ha. Just went and looked. It’s hilarious how many folks don’t see the joke. (Beverly hills antifa)

  59. Huh, Stormy got off! Charges dropped in Ohio

  60. Wanna see a fucking joke, check out hearing with the FBI shitbird. It’s so fucking funny some people should die. A fucking kangaroo, third world, bananna bullshit show.

  61. I just dug out and leveled a spot for our new tent shed. Gonna be nice to get our crap stowed away properly. We have too much stuff, but I haven’t done a Marie Kondo decluttering process for the outdoors items yet.

    Maybe this Fall or next Spring.

  62. I watched part of it. I couldn’t take that arrogant smirking cunt any longer. He and John Koskinen must be fuck buddies.

  63. After seeing him deny any political bias in his work for the FBI I knew all I needed to know. If that statement was accepted then they should have stopped right there because the rest of anything he had to say was pure unadulterated bullcrap

  64. Dumb question: do these people still have jobs?

    They actually still work in government, right?

  65. Of course they do.

    If we get a chance to talk in person again, ask me to tell stories about government workers at the TLA level.

  66. What is the point? You can lie, cheat, steal, never really work, and get a lifetime pension and healthcare for working 20 years.

    Peter Strozk is my hero. He’s telling everyone to fuck off knowing that he can’t be fired.

  67. He’s not even under oath. Why waste the time and money?

    So Gowdy can get more air time.

  68. Peter Strozk is my hero. He’s telling everyone to fuck off knowing that he can’t be fired.

    You’re paying his salary. So am I. He should be terrified. That he isn’t is an embarrassment to the republic.

  69. He’s under oath.

  70. Got to agree with Troy. Third world shit show.

  71. “do these people still have jobs?”

    the teaparty was slapped down for the most part & the leftists have gloated.
    the sentiment of “je me souviens”, vis-a-vis freedom, requires the watering of the liberty tree to be fresh in our collective mind.
    it’s been too long
    these imbeciles on the left have no real idea of what they fuck with.
    the pendulum swings

  72. He’s under oath.

    I thought so, for sure, too.

    Now, I couldn’t stomach more than a couple minutes, but watch his smug smirk while he sits there and lies, and seeing the Dems basically filibuster the process and actually applaud his condescending answers, that was sickening.

    And yes, Gowdy is a grandstanding ass. All hat No cattle (as someone here said once)

  73. tee-roy-
    what general part of illin noise are you in?
    anywhere near des plaines?

  74. Seriously, he’s the American dream.

    He’s a naked partisan, will lie about it knowing he’ll be lionized for it, and then on the way out he makes you pick up the check.

    I’d be more impressed if his bete noir wasn’t ugly as fuck, but he’s not exactly a looker himself.

  75. Quick gardening question: I need to fill in a old coy pond. What do I use? A mixture of rock and cheap dirt?

  76. The only comic books I bought were ‘Pinky and the Brain’.

  77. Gummy Boo Boo is probably fine in certain positions.

  78. These dog and pony shows in D.C. are filled with cunts.

  79. Koi

  80. MJ, fill it with whatever is bordering it.

  81. Baby diapers should work, but they will absorb a lot of water.

  82. @Jam Im dead center of the state between Bloomington and Decatur. Wasabe?

  83. Start with the body of whatever politician is closest. Add a bag of lime, then top off the concrete.

  84. The intel community has been spying on everyone but our enemies for how long now?
    It’s why the shit shows continue with nothing ever coming of them because everyone is afraid of their time at Pedo island, or similar, being exposed.

    That, and I suspect Mueller and Co. is there to destroy more evidence.

  85. Ain’t gonna fix this with words words words, I’m afraid.

    I don’t look forward to what happens once that’s generally understood.

  86. Where have you been putting the dead hobos and hookers?

  87. Why, did you have a favorite?

  88. More Koi.

    Duh.

  89. Horny Stormy has a weird shaped face. Her right jaw bone is bigger than her left jawbone. Maybe the right one is just full of jizm.

  90. Probably got slapped by her pimp.

  91. Stormy’s oddly shaped face is what forced her into a pr0n career. If she had symmetry she’d have been cast as Rose on Titanic. Instead she was just filled with seamen.

  92. Or so I’ve heard

  93. Mostly covered, I suspect, given the tropes of the genre, but your point is well made.

  94. Instead she was just filled with seamen.

    I LOLd in my pants.

  95. Heh.
    The House is putting the Dem “abolish ICE” bill up for a vote.
    The three Dems that introduced the stunt bill all say they’ll vote NO because “Paul Ryan isn’t serious! We refuse to take part in this stunt!”

  96. I went to the Columbus Museum of Art, and all the employees had name tags with their preferred pronouns on them. I didn’t even see this crap in California. That does not fill me with confidence about this town…

  97. louie
    louie!
    louie!!
    LOUIE!!!
    http://tinyurl.com/ycj28tqj

  98. Columbus is woke!!! They’ve had several Somali incidents at their airport that the media doesn’t cover.

  99. tee-roy –
    the next time i’m out visiting a buddy of mine i’d like to get together.
    he’s in des plaines – there’s a pretty good roadhouse near him.

  100. time to send a couple of bucks to louie’s camp

  101. CoAl, go to Dayton. Wright-Patt is where the aliens from the Roswell incident ended up. 🤣🤣🤣👋🏻👽

  102. I’m still pissed that Awan pled to bank fraud. I’m probably jumping to conclusions, but the compromised Yemeni raid was on 1/28 and the Awans were denied access to their jobs on 2/2.

  103. there used to be an amazing steak house in the urbana area
    i forget the name

  104. I went to the Columbus Museum of Art, and all the employees had name tags with their preferred pronouns on them.

    LOL. But you know … they were all (most likely) art majors.

  105. Come up and visit me. We don’t have any of that bs in Lapeer. Actually, if you want to do a detroit thing, I’ll show you all the cool places. I mean, if you stay there. Detroit is actually freaking amazing. We can go to the Henry Ford … Detroit … the battery store …

  106. LOL. But you know … they were all (most likely) art majors.

    Most likely. A few looked respectable. A cute brunette working the front desk and a redhead in one of the galleries. Of course, the insistence on referring to them as “she” made me a little suspicious.

    And if I do stay in the area, we will definitely have to arrange something. Maybe a visit to Detroit.

  107. North of I 80 is enemy territory lol, but give me some heads up and we can probably make something happen. Des Plains is probably 180 -200 miles from here. I’d enjoy meeting you.

    ——–

    These are not serious people. This is a friggen debacle and I mean the whole pathetic congress.

  109. Wright-Pat also has a B2 flight with a cool radar cross section detector and repair shop that I used to work on the software for.

  110. Mare, I want indictments. I want people in jail. I want the NYPD to leak what was on Wieners laptop. I want justice! I want France to lose WC. FUCKERS! Person linked to Charlie Hebdo massacre already set to be released.

  111. For Oso.

  112. I agree with everything Oso said. I just don’t understand how Manafort is in jail and yet every single character in all of the agencies, Hillary, who were lying, spying, cheating, leaking and everything else are completely arrogant in the knowledge nothing will happen.

    It’s a friggen travesty of justice.

  113. there used to be an amazing steak house in the urbana area
    i forget the name

    Bonanza? Ponderosa?

  114. It was a Golden Corral there buckaroo!

  115. mmmm, all you can eat sirloin.

    Or horse.

  116. Ugh. I hate Golden Corral with a passion. Don’t get me started.

  117. Ok assholes.

    For real, what do I use to fill in an unused Koi pond?

  118. One of my friends works for Humana. AKA the HHM building.

  119. Gardening/pond infill is Lauraw. Sheesh.

  120. I KNOW, WTF ASSHOLES.

  121. I’d skip the rocks & just use dirt.
    Or, since I get free hardwood chips whenever I want, i’d use those (they’ll turn to soil with time).

    You are pulling the liner, right?

  122. First you have to think like a koi … what is the opposite of what a koi wants?

    Herons.

    Fill it with herons.

  123. You fold the liner in.

    Then you throw in whatever is laying around that no longer brings you joy, like old clothes and paint cans.

    Then you cover it with dirt.

  124. Charge your r edneck neighbors to dump their used car parts and fighting dog carcasses there.

  125. “Comment by Jimbro on July 12, 2018 9:11 pm”

    hahaaa!
    winner

  126. listen to jimes – he was pre-contractor

  127. Radioactive waste and spiders.

  128. chi-chi and scott are right tho –
    make sure you pull the liner or you’re gonna have a mud pit

  129. Logs, then compost, then soil, then mulch. Plant pumpkins on top on Memorial Day.

  130. so it’s a hugulkoiture?

  131. i just dug one of those bastards out this past spring –
    i’m guessing it was built back in the day (the house was built in the 20’s)
    it was a concrete behemoth and had been filled in with random stuff through the years and created a muddy mess in the tiny back yard.

    i had trouble moving the fucker with a cat 305

    a modern plastic lined heron trap should be easy

  132. “hugulkoiture?”
    this is why jay is so lovable

  133. If it’s like almost every koi pond I’ve ever seen, it’s probably protected by a shade tree and wouldn’t get enough sunlight for vegetables even with great soil.
    But maybe you can grow mushrooms back there.

  134. Filling MJ’s holes since 2008.

  135. Pot grows everywhere

  136. Pumpkins only need about 6 good hours a day, and the vines will crawl toward sun. It’ll work.

  137. Then you throw in whatever is laying around that no longer brings you joy, like old clothes and paint cans.
    ******oh- I have a decluttering book that will help. Now …. where did I put that …?

  138. I called Dan, Neville, for appeasing MA by giving her second 🐥🐥 dinner. Dan” Who’s Neville?” Oso: Chamberlain. He thought to negotiate away WWII by giving Hitler everything.
    Dan after watching Bill Burr standup: Does that make you Stalin if MA is Hitler?

  139. Neurotic doxies need chicky chicky.

  140. Who’s Hitler?
    https://tinyurl.com/y89menep

  141. Get past the anti Trump and watch Bill Burr. 14 year old Doxie dominates Albuquerque family.

  142. Roamy, check out Netflix standup. Get past the negative Trump

  143. Pivotal moment. Plug in or snuggle with Dan? I generate heat. I bet he bails to couch by midnight

  144. You gotta love what the Montgomery Biscuits (Tampa Bay’s AA team) did. Trolling level:expert.
