Steve Ditko really is the definitive Doctor Strange artist; his weird mindscapes and surreal astral planes are unique in their vision. This omnibus collects all of Stan Lee and Ditko's Dr Strange stories and while they're very much of their time this collection is essential and the pinnacle of what Marvel Comics were producing in the Sixties - simply because it's all so far out and trippy, man!

I was reluctant about this first, as it's not cheap and I only just got interested in Doctor Strange. However I don't regret this purchase one bit - not only are they fabulous comics, it's also a very nice high quality issue and absolutely worth the price.
Now I'm just waiting for volume II!

Collecting Strange Tales issues #110-111, #114-146 and Amazing Spider-Man Annual #2, this omnibus takes us right back to the beginning of one of Marvel's more unique characters; unlike his superhero counterparts, Doctor Strange didn't gain his powers through the standard radioactive accident, nor was he gifted with them from birth, but instead through years of dedication and hard studying of the mystic arts.

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.

A very polished product worth the price. I like the inclusion of the original comic cover at the start of each section of story and small pieces on the background behind the introduction of the character.

You can see the stories become more refined as you read the book so it takes on a journey in more ways than one.
