From all of us here at Into The Weird (Billy D, Dormammu, and me) we wish you a fantastic 2021 and may lots of comic books come your way.
During our latest episode (Ep. 24 which can be found here) we discussed one of the single greatest first issues in all of comics – DOCTOR STRANGE Vol. 2 #1 from June 1974. This was a pretty big deal for us, since this issue unequivocally qualifies as one of our single favorite comic books in our respective collections. Not only does it feature stellar Frank Brunner art on both the cover and the interiors, but it also has Steve Englehart in top form on the script. Dick Giordano brilliantly inks while Glynis Wein’s colors arrest the senses. Basically the entire issue is a whole big cornucopia of WOW from cover to cover.
As promised on the show, here are some choice images that deserve to be highlighted, not only for their racy and erotic elements, but also for their importance to the new Stephen Strange dynamic that Brunner and Englehart were aiming for in these pages.
Before we get to these images, however, I would like to once again thank our Legion of Weirdos for supporting us for over two years of podcasting. Billy and Herm have got a lot planned for 2021, and hopefully things’ll just get better from here on out. You Allies of Agamotto inspire us to improve, and improve we shall!
Now enough sentimentality. Let’s get to the comic!
The MAIN EVENT:
And that wraps up our Doctor Strange coverage for this episode. Next up – The Recommendations of Raggador!
And with that we’re out of here, folks. Take care of yourselves, and join us in two weeks for another psychedelic TRIP (thanks, Englehart)… INTO THE WEIRD!
