He afterward attended the Cartoonists and Illustrators School, under Batman inker Jerry Robinson and others. One classmate was future Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko. Stanton shared a Manhattan studio at 43rd Street and Eighth Avenue with Ditko from 1958 to 1966 or 1968 (accounts differ). Some of Stanton’s work during this period shows heavy Ditko influence, although Ditko has denied contributing to Stanton’s art.
Stanton, in a 1988 interview with comics historian Greg Theakston, recalled that though his contribution to Spider-Man was “almost nil”, he and Ditko had “worked on storyboards together [and] I added a few ideas. But the whole thing was created by Steve on his own. … I think I added the business about the webs coming out of his hands”.
After Klaw died in 1966, Stanton supported himself via self-publishing and distributing his work to a quasi-underground network of subscribers and patrons. His mimeographed/photocopied Stantoons comic-book series continued to his death in 1999 and featured many of his best-known post-Klaw concepts, including the superheroine Blunder Broad, and the Amazon-like Princkazons.
Stanton created Blunder Broad in the 1970s with writer Turk Winter, for use in a great number of pornographic BDSM stories, published over the years in black and white.
