In search of Steve Ditko

OK so Jonathan Ross isn't my favourite person in the world but you can't fault him on this documentary he did a while ago about the reclusive mystery man and inventive artist behind Spiderman and most crucially the psychedelic weirdness that was Dr Strange. Politically Dikto leaned far right yet ironically became a hero for the 60's counterculture as this Marvel superhero strip tapped into the LSD induced consciousness of the era without ever having touched drugs himself. This talking heads documentary features some excellent soundbites from the likes of Alan Moore, Neil Gaimen, and Stan Lee amongst others.
