Rare Steve Ditko DR. STRANGE Pin-Up! Silver Age Sensation! Marvel Comics!

There's little to say about this. What can words do, but simply distract one's attention from the sheer beauty of this magnificent Dr. Strange illustration? Appearing in a 1967 reprint issue of MARVEL COLLECTOR'S ITEM CLASSICS, Stan Lee and the gang surreptitiously slipped this little Steve Ditko-drawn gem into the back pages, with nary a bit of advance fanfare or typical hokey hyperbole! Since "sturdy" Steve did a very limited amount of Marvel work (and, by 1967 was 2 years gone from the so-called "House of Ideas"), little-seen art by him was always a welcomed treat, so feast your eager eyes, frantic ones!
