It's none of our business, but, since the issue has been raised, I'll
ask a question.
Does Ditko receive/refuse Marvel reprint/royalty checks when his
Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, and other Marvel work is reprinted? That
could be a tidy sum of money over the years, especially given how
much of his work has been reprinted.
The number of stories that I wrote for Marvel is miniscule compared
to how many stories Ditko drew. Yet I've made some decent money when
the company reprinted those stories in comic books, trade paperbacks, etc.
Even on a royalty basis, Ditko should be receiving some serious money.
