Brand New Copy of the Famous First Edition: First printing of 5,000 numbered copies Hardcover, 28 x 39.5 cm, 4.40 kg, 626 pages Stephen J. "Steve” Ditko was born in 1927 in Pennsylvania. He studied under Jerry Robinson at the Cartoonists and Illustrators School in New York City and began working at Atlas Comics, the precursor of Marvel Comics, in the mid 1950s. He made his name as the artist and co-creator, with Stan Lee, of Spider-Man and as creator of Doctor Strange. From 1958 to 1967 Ditko shared a studio with Eric Stanton and it is believed the two contributed to each others artworks, notably Eric Stanton’s On a Kinky Hook and Sweeter Gwen. Spider-Man tangles with Doc Ock, Kraven, and the Green Goblin, while Peter Parker navigates the perils of teen romance in the second half of Lee and Ditko’s Amazing Spider-Man magnum opus.
