    One slight correction: Ditko did another TV adaptation: The little-remembered PHANTOM 2040 animated series from the '90's.

    DUDE. How can you forget Chuck Norris Karate Kommandos??

    And add Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and The Phantom 2040 to the list. The one time I saw Ditko, I zipped into the editor's office to beg to ink him on MMPR. Unfortunately, didn't get the job.

      Well, the former is a toy and the latter is a teevee extrapolation of a newspaper strip (I liked the show, and I'm a big Phantom fan so I felt somehow I shouldn't)… but I guess Phantom 2040 counts.

    Re-reading my issues of "What The!?" a week or so back, I found a Ditko-pencilled (and inks by Marie Severin) six-pager that had more gags packed in it than a Willie Elder story. Hilarious.Steve also did a World Wrestling Federation story starring The Bushwhackers for Valiant before their superhero line came out. Say this about the man; he knows it's all work, and he's always willing to take work.

    Wasn't his Spider-Man work at Marvel just an adaptation of the popular old Italian Spiderman television series?
