Strange Tales #145 - Jack Kirby cover, Steve Ditko art

Jack Kirby
Strange Tales v1 #145, 1966 - Exhausted from a battle in the twilight dimension, Dr. Strange finds himself under attack by a new foe called Mister Rasputin. Steve Ditko nears the end of his run on this series, but still produces drawings of a surreal graphic quality. His geometric designs look best on the story's opening splash. This story was later reprinted in Giant-Size Defenders #1. Jack Kirby's cover fares better than his forgettable layouts on the Nick Fury feature. Other artists in this issue include Don Heck. See today's posts or more Ditko, Kirby or Strange Tales issues. See also this blog's Ditko checklist or Kirby checklist.
