STORY DETAILS

Title: Nightmare!

Characters: Dr. Strange; Yandroth [Scientist Supreme]; Victoria Bentley (cameo)

Synopsis: Hurling thru the void of space, Strange sees a vision of Victoria Bentley, surrounded by machinery. He lands on a jungle planet inhabited by savage, monstrous creatures. Strange finds an underground cavern, and inside it, an elaborate machine, from which emits a mental challenge. Yandroth, Scientist Supreme, claims to have unlocked the "inner-most secrets of the cosmos", and intends to make Victoria his queen-- to rule many planets, including, eventually, Earth. Strange refuses to depart, and realizes a challenge of science vs. magic awaits him...

Script: Jim Lawrence; Dan Adkins (co-plot)

Pencils: Dan Adkins

Inks: Dan Adkins

Letters: Al Kurzrok

Reprints: Giant-Size Doctor Strange (Marvel, 1975 series) #1 (1975)

Notes: Part 18 of 22; part 1 of Yandroth sequence. Story title misleading; Strange's longtime foe Nightmare does not appear, refers to the "Land Of Nightmares" (as mentioned in previous issue's coming attractions) or "Nightmare Planet" (on this episode's last page). 1st appearance of Yandroth, Scientist Supreme; continues the trend of science-fiction themes in Dan Adkins' stories. Beginning this issue, lead stories alternate to match alternating covers.
