ME: Yes, I met Mr. Ditko on a trip to New York in 1970 and spoke to
him and corresponded a few times after that.  We had a falling-out
over a publishing misunderstanding about 10 years ago and have had no
contact since then.

No, I take that back.  About six years ago when I was up at Marvel, I
stood alongside him in the men's room but he didn't recognize me and I
decided against renewing our association and didn't say anything to

He's an interesting man and a lot of his work has been brilliant.  But
I think I'd enjoy it more if we'd never met.
