The first edition of Doctor Strange vol 1 sold out long ago. Prices for new on Amazon are as high as $640. Used prices can go as high as $190. With the movie slated for next fall, there's a good chance the price on these will continue to climb. Now, Marvel is offering a second edition for $40 (as of this review).
Incidentally, Strange Tales #110 is currently listed on some sites as high as $47k for a high graded copy and even low-grade copies are listed for over $1k!!
One thing to note is the image for this collection's cover appears to be taken from the Famous Firsts Masterworks Boxed Set. My copy was a Silver-and-Black standard Masterworks with the original Ditko pin-up in the cover inset.
Collects material from Strange Tales 110-111, 114-141 & Amazing Spider-man Annual #2. Extras include original art (Ditko w/ Roussos inking) of #125, page 8 (no margin notes), the TPB version of the cover, a Steve Ditko & (Marie Severin?) composite pose of Doctor...
The content of this book is really FIVE STAR - We're talking Steve Ditko at the height of his creative abilities, with some of Stan Lee's best scripting. The angst of Spider-man isn't here (except for a tad of it in the story reprinted from Amazing Spider-Man Annual #2), and instead we've got the most arcane and cosmic stories since the early days of Doctor Fate and Stardust the Super Wizard.
I've given this particular incarnation of the book - the newest printing from 2015 - three stars because of the many unforgivable and easily preventable coloring errors throughout the book. The colorist just didn't seem to care what they hell they were doing. That's a damn shame, given the scarcity of this book; I know if I had bought a copy of the first printing (which gray markets for $200-400) and it had the same abominable errors, I would have been incredibly annoyed.
This volume reprints all the Doctor Strange tales from Strange Tales, up until the climax of his...
I found the more "superhero-y" bits where he fights villains such as Baron Mordo to be the least compelling of the collection. One's where he's off doing his own thing, battling strange creatures or anomalies were much more interesting and nuanced. Great, fun read.
