DescriptionSteve Ditko Strange Tales #117 Splash Page 1 Doctor Strange Original Art (Marvel, 1964). This page is both penciled and inked by Ditko, and it features Doctor Strange and his own Astral Projection, making this a double-double-treat! Add to it that this is simply one of the best splash pages in the Doctor's entire Strange Tales run and you get a truly magical page!
Steve Ditko's already impressive credentials working on Charlton's 1950's fare of horror, magical, monster, and sci-fi tales made him a perfect choice for Marvel's new Master of the Mystic Arts. Bizarre magical dimensions came alive under Ditko's pencil, as did their strange looking denizens. Magic flowed from Doctor Strange's fingertips as if it were alive!
In "The Many Traps of Baron Mordo!", Dr. Strange again tangles with his rival for the Ancient One's tutelage. This was already Mordo's fourth appearance in the seven-month old series, and as he was an integral part of Doctor Strange's origin (as told is Strange Tales #115), he would be a recurring thorn in the magician's side for a long time to come. This issue was the first time for both Doctor Strange and Mordo to have their name on the cover.
An impressive twice-up scale page, it was crafted in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12.5" x 18.5". Some whiteout art and text correction. In Excellent condition.
