Doctor Strange v2 #3 - Frank Brunner art & cover, Steve Ditko reprint

Frank Brunner
Doctor Strange v2 #3, 1974 - Still in search of his missing companion, Doctor Strange recalls their initial meeting. Frank Brunner provides only a few pages, framing Clea's first appearance from Strange Tales #126 (drawn by Steve Ditko). The artist nicely packages the reprint with an outstanding new cover. The figures of Doctor Strange and Clea are heavily shadowed, illuminated by the encroaching Dormammu. Minimal highlights also add drama to this precisely composed cover. This is number 3 of 11 Doctor Strange issues with Brunner art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Brunner, Ditko or Doctor Strange issues.
