DESCRIPTION
Kirby/Ditko cvr; origin Dr. Strange; 2nd app. Sandman, early Spiderman x-over
The cover of Strange Tales #115 features a typically extraordinary Steve Ditko illustration, which neatly summarizes the Human Torch v. Sandman yarn that is featured first in the issue. Readers got a story that boasted a cameo by Spider-Man, as well as a Torch-as-Spidey plot twist. But the real treasure of this book may be the Dr. Strange origin tucked into the back pages. Although the Sorcerer Supreme had appeared in the previous four issues of Strange Tales, this is the origin story of the immortal creation, providing the direct inspiration for the highly successful "Dr. Strange" feature film starring Benedict Cumberbatch ("Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" due out May 2021). As a core character of Marvel Cinematic Universe lore, there can be no mistaking the value and importance of this classic Silver Age comic.


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.
