Dr Strange Marvel Comics Price Guide

Value of Dr Strange Marvel Comics
by Christopher Tanis and Ashley Cotter-Cairns

Ahh, the Master of the Mystic Arts! Is there anything better than reading and re-reading some old Stan Lee/Steve Ditko Dr. Strange stories?

Stephen Strange was driven to study the Mystic Arts after a car accident ruined the nerves in his hands, destroying his surgical career. After crawling into the bottle for a while, he sought out the Ancient One, became his disciple, and the rest is history.

The Changing Faces of Dr Strange Marvel Mystic

The very first panel featuring Dr Strange appeared in the now red-hot book, Strange Tales #110
Marvel Premiere #3 featured the Mystic Master on the cover, and his corny catchphrase!

The very first panel featuring Dr Strange appeared in the now hot book, Strange Tales #110

Marvel Premiere #3 featured the Mystic Master on the cover, and his corny catchphrase!

Dr Strange faces off with Death (not for the last time) in issue #4 of his first dedicated series

There's something simultaneously very old-fashioned and at the same time boldly futuristic about Dr. Strange at his best, and it doesn't take the Eye of Agamotto to figure it out.

If your speech is peppered with expressions like "By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth," or you threaten people with imprisonment in the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak, then you might just be as big a Dr. Strange fan as we are.
