    Bill Everett Strange Tales #150 Doctor Strange/Kaluu Page 6 Original Art (Marvel, 1966). By the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak -- Bill Everett's artistry with a brush was a magical match-up for illustrating the adventures of Doctor Strange. Four fantastic panels are the highlights of this eerie page from "The Conquest of Kaluu." When Steve Ditko left the feature, Bill Everett handled the transition drawing only a half-dozen or so ten-page Doctor Strange yarns. In an Alter Ego interview Everett remarked, "It was a challenge because I tried to do Ditko-like work and that was next to impossible. There are very few people who can imitate Ditko. I tried to keep my drawing and Ditko's influence. And it was very difficult, but it was fun. I enjoyed doing it." There are numerous story notations written in the margins of this page that reveal the creative process that was a cornerstone of the "Marvel method." The image area of this treasure is 12.5" x 18.5". Aside from some white-out used for lettering corrections, and some wear in the margins, the art is in Very Good condition.
