RIP STEVE DITKO, THE ORIGINAL ARCHITECT OF POP CULTURE
Steve Ditko passed away on July 6, 2018 at the age of 90. He created the iconic characters which we love. Spider-Man. Doctor Strange. Blue Beatle. Hawk & Dove. and more…
Amazing Comic Conventions believe that the best Pop Culture starts with comics, and their creators. We often mention a term- the ARCHITECTS OF POP CULTURE-as someone who generates the characters we love, the graphic novels we read, the action stars which light up the cineplex, shape the toys we collect, the games which we play. Truth be told, with this standard in place, there is no bigger figure in the world of pop than an artist like Steve Ditko…
His passing should have a profound impact on the fan community, and his life and creations should be celebrated.
Life is short, and can be fragile, and should never be taken for granted. I ask that everyone in the fan community personally thank their own heroes, the people who generate the things we love. There's no time like the present to celebrate greatness.
We hope to see you at Amazing Comic Con Aloha, and celebrate Pop Culture together. Our Amazing Comic Con event takes place at the very end of August on the 24th through 25th. The ALOHA EDITION is the biggest event if its kind in Hawaii, and takes place in Honolulu at the Hawaii Convention Center.
