I Go Ditko

outofthisworld07-ditkoLook at this poor guy. He's made of wood, crystal, metal and... newspaper? It's called genius, my friends. Blake Bell's Steve Ditko site is archiving every cover the great man ever drew.

This is another example of what I've been saying all along: Where are the clothes? It's time for a crackdown on the comic book industry, and I'm ready to write a letter to the F.C.C. This so-called "drawing" is the equivalent of Malibu Barbie without her jellybean Spandex jumpsuit. Can't your "drawers" draw people with shirts and pants on? And, frankly, I'm tired of hearing about Ditko. The Bears only had one good year. If Vince Lombardi drew some comics, you'd have something worth showing. And I bet he'd put clothes on this people.

You're right. In decency's name, he needs at least a pair of trunks to cover that lying newspaper.

You're just mad because Ditka didn't put comics on the guy. That's the trouble with Dikta: He couldn't draw irony. Until somebody learns to draw irony, comics will never replace radio. And you don't see paint on costumes in radio, either. Did you think of that, Mr. Superfrankenstein? Huh? Did you think of that! No. You didn't. And that's my point.

Radio and comics shouldn't be enemies. They should get together. Mayor LaGuardia envisioned this, but he didn't go far enough. Comics have sight. Radio has sound. Mix comics and radio with one of those scent-producing disks and stand back because the 21st Century is exploding in your face!
