Now I'm just waiting for volume II!
As an idea conceived by artist Steve Ditko, best known for his work on Spider Man, the character was named by Stan Lee and the two then introduced the character in the pages of Strange Tales (one of many generically named series Marvel had ongoing at the time) which the character shared initially with the Human Torch and later with Nick Fury. I think it's important to make clear, as, I don't believe certain omnibi do, that this book does not collect the entirety of Strange Tales #110-111 and #114-146, but only the Doctor Strange stories therein, which average about 8 pages each. This might seem obvious, but is not necessarily made clear. As such, this is a smaller omnibus than most at about 450 pages including supplemental material at the back, but is still a great collection of the entirety of Ditko's defining run on the character.
The art is amazing from the beginning; Ditko held nothing back in drawing ever increasingly weird and bizarre worlds and dimensions for Strange to visit - any fan of surrealism will surely love it - and Lee added his famous brand of fun and quirky dialogue, clearly revelling in letting his imagination loose in writing Strange's spells and incantations.
Doctor Strange has never really been at the forefront of the Marvel universe, probably unknown to many prior to this year's movie release, but he's a great character and arguably never better than during this original short but sweet era.
You can see the stories become more refined as you read the book so it takes on a journey in more ways than one.

The cover has nothing to do with the vintage art inside, and it shows the publisher's contempt for the period it's repackaging.
The pages inside are high gloss. Read more
