Doctor Strange Special Edition #1 - Bernie Wrightson cover, Frank Brunner, Neal Adams reprints, Brunner art

Bernie Wrightson
Doctor Strange Special Edition v1 #1, 1983 - The 1970s Silver Dagger storyline is collected here for the first time. Originally published in Doctor Strange v2 #1, #2, #4 and #5, the stories feature some of Frank Brunner's finest work (with Neal Adams in #4). Bernie Wrightson supplies the new wrap-around cover, but the complete scene (including the back) seems awkwardly divided. Sadly, the artist also seems to emphasize grotesqueness over craftsmanship. Other artists in this issue include Al Milgrom. This is number 1 of 1 Doctor Strange Special Edition issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams, Brunner, Wrightson, Doctor Strange or Doctor Strange Special Edition issues.
