STRANGE TALES #116-119 (1963)

Some Dr. Strange stories.  Some solo Human Torch stories.  I know a lot of people love the old Lee/Ditko Doc Strange stuff, but I’m just not feelin’ in.  But it is about now that Stan starts talking about the “Marvel Age of Comics.”  See the blurb above.

As for the Torch stories: Look how grotesque Puppet Master looks on the splash page.  There’s nothing real significant in these issues, but that panel is a keeper.

Creators: Stan Lee/Steve Ditko (Strange); Lee/Dick Ayers (Human Torch)

Grade: D (all)
