Steve Ditko Responds to Eight Year Old's Fan Letter, Has Only Slightly Better Handwriting

An eight year old comic fan who runs a blog (seriously, anyone can do this, just look at us) wrote a fan letter to Spider-Man creator and reclusive curmudgeon Steve Ditko, and Ditko responded, making headlines all over the internet, including at Eisner Award winning Comic Book Resources. The fan asked Ditko if any teachers ever inspired him to draw comics, and what his favorite part of drawing was.

Ditko, most likely grateful that the fan sent a letter instead of barging in on his fucking office against his wishes like those pompous douchebags Jonathan Ross and Neil Gaiman did in their documentary "In Search of Steve Ditko," responded, advising the fan to read more Ayn Rand books and to "never work with that lying cunt Stan Lee." Or something like that.

Here's the actual letters:
