BBC to air doc on Speedball creator Ditko

BBC will soon be airing a one-hour documentary on Steve Ditko, co-creator and artist of Speedball (and lesser-known characters like Spider-Man and Dr. Strange). No exact airdate has been announced. “In Search of Steve Ditko,” produced by Jonathan Ross, will be broadcast on BBC4, the British art channel. Comic creators such as Jerry Robinson, John Romita, Neil Gaiman, Paul Levitz, Ralph Macchio, Flo Steinberg, Alan Moore, Mark Millar, Stan Lee, Cat Yronwode and others were interviewed. Is it unknown whether Ditko was interviewed.

5/1 Update: At this time, the documentary is about 60% done and does not include an interview with Ditko.

    For “Wossy” to be involved in this means it’ll be a labour of love…

    plus It’s nice to see my TV Licence money going to something worthwhile for a change.
