Strange Tales #110 - Jack Kirby cover, Steve Ditko art

Jack Kirby
Strange Tales v1 #110, 1963 - Plagued by nightmares every night, a man seeks help from a well-known mystic named Doctor Strange. In the character's first appearance, the story reveals a few of his magical abilities and introduces his mentor Ancient One. Tasked with the artwork, Steve Ditko creates one of Marvel's more exotic heroes. The story is brief and the panels numerous, but the artist does a credible job given the limitations. Ditko would soon expand his graphic vocabulary, depicting strange new worlds, dimensions and characters. Less significant is Jack Kirby's rather mediocre Human Torch cover. Other artists in this issue include Matt Fox and Dick Ayers.
