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, 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 MCU's "Doctor Strange" as well as "Thor: Ragnarok" 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.
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. This spectacular book, with its deep blacks, bright reds, and vibrant yellows, is an incredibly well-preserved copy, which boasts cover signatures not only from Marvel’s main man Stan Lee but also from highly respected artist Dick Ayers who penciled the Human Torch story in this issue. With the blockbuster success of “Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” demand for this book has escalated to unprecedented levels in recent months.
