    Bill Everett - Strange Tales #150, Dr. Strange page 4 Original Art (Marvel, 1966). By the shadowy shades of the seraphim, Bill Everett's artistry with a brush was a magical match-up for illustrating the exploits of Dr. Strange! The Ancient One duplicates his spell of banishment from several centuries ago, and sends a griffin into another mystical realm in this fantastic scene 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 Dr. 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 the page is 12.5" x 18.5", and aside from some white-out used for lettering corrections, the art is in Excellent condition.
