Waiting inside this issue, unbeknownst to young readers, was the Master of Black Magic, the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange. His tales were brought to life by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, two of the legendary architects of Marvel's Silver Age. It was easily overlooked on the newsstands, as there is no signifier of Doctor Strange's appearance in the issue on its cover illustration by Jack Kirby, which depicts Strange Tales' main protagonist, the Human Torch, facing off against his nemesis Paste-Pot Pete. The surprise introduction of Earth's sole defender from magical and mystical threats made this issue a sleeper hit. With the success of Benedict Cumberbatch as the good doctor in the Doctor Strange movie and his upcoming appearance in Thor Ragnorak and Avengers Infinity War, this book is sure to reach new heights in popularity!

Strange Tales issues have been heating up in popularity over the past few years, and due to the influx of new Marvel movie announcements, it has been increasingly difficult to keep this issue in stock in any grade. This is one of the toughest Silver Age key issues to find, likely due to a small print run, but, that hasn't stopped collectors from snapping up copies as quickly as they can.


Artists Information

Jack Kirby is called 'The King of Comics' for a reason, during his career that spanned six decades he gave us many of most iconic characters the medium would ever see. From his introduction of Captain America at the height of World War II it was clear he wasn't your ordinary comics artist. But it was his creative explosion at Marvel Comics in the 1960's that cemented his legacy, over a short period of time Kirby would give us The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, The Hulk, The X-Men, Thor, Ant-Man and Nick Fury just to name a few. Kirby would then go to DC and create his Fourth World, introducing Darkseid, Mister Miracle, The New Gods and a host of cosmic supporting players. Long live The King.

Richard "Dick" Ayers was an American comic book artist and cartoonist best known for his work as one of the main inkers during the late-1950's and 1960's Silver Age of Comics, including some of the earliest issues of Marvel Comics' including Jack Kirby's The Fantastic Four. He is the signature penciler of Marvel's World War II comic Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos, drawing it for a 10-year run, and he co-created Magazine Enterprises' 1950s Western-horror character the Ghost Rider, a version of which he would draw for Marvel in the 1960s. His career would span 7 decades until his death in 2014.
