WAS IT DITKO’S IDEA TO HAVE A CHARACTER BOX ON MARVEL’S COVERS?

In the letters page of Fantastic Four #18 (Sept. 1963), when a reader wondered who came up with the idea of having a character box in the upper left corner of the covers, Stan Lee replied: “Steve Ditko dreamed up the idea, and we’re sure glad he did!”

In The Avenging Mind (2008), Ditko writes: “I suggested the corner box with a Marvel hero face and drew a face to show Lee and Sol Brodsky how it would look, and more important how and why the Marvel title with a hero face would be quickly seen, recognized, no matter how comic books sold in stores were placed in racks.”

Never knew where those came from– really cool!
