Doctor Strange #179 - Barry Windsor Smith cover, Steve Ditko reprint

Barry Windsor Smith
Dr. Strange v1 #179, 1969 - Instead of new material, the series abruptly reprints the first meeting between Spider-man and Doctor Strange. Originally from Amazing Spider-man annual #2, it showcases artwork by Steve Ditko. Barry Smith provides a new cover, his first published rendition of Spider-man. Unfortunately, it's amateurish and poorly drawn. Typical of his earliest efforts, the figures are stiffly rendered within an ill-conceived layout. This is number 1 of 1 Doctor Strange issues with Smith art and/covers. See today's posts or more Smith, Ditko or Doctor Strange issues. See also this blog's Smith checklist, Ditko checklist or Top 10 Smith comics.
