Artist Steve Ditko, Gone at Age 90

This artist was an incredible influence on me growing up. Steve Ditko, known mostly for co-creating Spider-Man and Doctor Strange, but he did so much more. I loved all the monster comics he did at Marvel in the early 1960s. His work at Charlton and Atlas Comics. I was lucky enough to correspond with him twice and he wrote one letter about liking MONSTER BASH MAGAZINE.

Steve was found dead in his apartment in New York City apparently from natural causes.

My top five influences from professionals have to be Forrest J Ackerman, Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby and Chuck Berry.

Steve was an icon to me and will be missed. Rest-in-Peace Steve Ditko.

Happy Birthday to the Dad of MONSTER BASH!

A Happy birthday going out to Tom Adams...here's a couple pictures of myself with my dad...with a few years between! Originally the MONSTER BASH staff colors were going to be green and black....Dad's the one that said "No! Orange!" So he's why you see us staffers in orange at Monster Bash.

Well a happy birthday, Dad....you're the greatest. -Ron

Above: Mike Adams, Tom Adams, Bob Pellegrino.

Hi, Ron,
I was reading the Monster Bash News, and I see that your Dad (Tom Adams) recently celebrated his
birthday. I also want to wish him a Happy Birthday as well. Like my dad he started me
watching these classic monster films, as a small kid, the very first one was THEM! Giant Ants with James
Whitmore, Kris Kringle himself, Edmund Gwenn, James Arness and the ever beautiful, Joan Weldon. And the
second one was House of Frankenstein, Frankenstein's Monster, Dracula, The Wolf Man (a House filled with
monsters-LOL,) with Boris, Lon, J. Carroll, John, Glenn, Anne, Lionel, George and the beautiful Elena Verdugo. Happy Birthday, Mr. Tom Adams, Many More!!

Warmest Regards, Steve Wyka (Wallington, NJ)
