MARVEL FANFARE #5 (1982)

No real home runs here. It leads with what feels an awful lot like an old Dr. Strange story (he and Clea are still together). It’s not necessarily a bad thing to publish older stories, or tales that appear out-of-continuity, but this feels like a story that simply wasn’t good enough for the regular series.  Dormammu appears briefly in it. Nice art, though.

Then, speaking of out-of-continuity stories, there’s a story about Captain America and Bucky during WWII. Not bad, but not great, either.

Creators: Chris Claremont, Marshall Rogers (Dr. Strange), Roger McKenzie and Luke McDonnell (Cap)
