Marvel Premiere #10 / Doctor Strange - Frank Brunner / Neal Adams art, Brunner cover

\Marvel Premiere v1 #10 featuring Doctor Strange, 1973 - Emanating from the unconscious Ancient One, an evil entity appears for a final confrontation with Doctor Strange. No longer hampered by incompatible inkers, Frank Brunner displays his true potential. His pencils show increased confidence and page layouts flow more naturally. A group of artistic colleagues, credited as the "Crusty Bunkers", lends an able hand with the inking. Neal Adams clearly does the bulk of the work, most prominently on pages 21-28 and the stunning opening splash. Though at times inconsistent, overall the combination of styles works spectacularly well. This story was first reprinted in Marvel Treasury Edition #6. This is number 1 of 4 Marvel Premiere issues with Adams art and/or covers and number 4 of 8 Marvel Premiere issues with Brunner art and/or covers.
