Stan Lee is paying respects to one of the most important comic book creators in the biz.
The former Marvel Comics Editor-In-Chief remembered Steve Ditko in a touching Twitter video posted Friday. Lee and Ditko co-created such iconic comic book characters as Spider-Man and Doctor Strange.
“I cannot let the week go without commenting on Steve Ditko,” said Lee. “Steve was certainly one of the most important creators in the comic book business. His talent was indescribable.”
“I worked with him for many years and was always impressed with how he saw everything in terms of photos and pictures and movement and scenes,” the comic legend continued. “He told a story like a fine movie director would.”
Ditko died at the age of 90 in New York City, but as far as Lee is concerned his story has many chapters left to write.
“I’m sure there will be a lot written about him as time goes by and I will be one of the guys who buy the first book,” concluded Lee. “You made a real impression here in the world. Excelsior!”
