Steve Ditko is known among the cartooning cognoscenti as one of the supreme visual stylists in the history of comics, as well as the most fiercely independent cartoonist of his generation. His unique style and innovative spatial designs moved from the imaginatively hallucinatory landscapes of Dr Strange to the almost plebeian earthiness of The Amazing Spider-Man. Strange & Stranger is a coffee-table book tracing Ditko's life and career and his unparalleled stylistic innovations with lush displays of obscure and popular art from Ditko's thousands of comics.
