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.
