Romita Sr is celebrating number 87 today. Has any comic book artist had more challenges thrown at him? Making the move from DC romance comics to Marvel super heroes in the mid-Sixties he replaced Wally Wood on Daredevil, then he was tabbed to replace Ditko on Spider-Man, four years later Stan asked him to take over the Fantastic Four after 102 issues of Kirby.

He was definitely Stan's go-to man, and became art editor when Kirby turned it down.

Happy birthday, Jazzy Johnny "Ring-a-Ding" Romita!
