Favorite Dr. Strange Covers


This past weekend, fans got their first good look at Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange and the verdict seems a resounding YES! Doc has always been a character I've enjoyed, especially in his stories from the 1960s-1980s. He also lends himself very nicely to colorful--one might say magical--covers. Here are a few of my personal favorites from Frank Brunner, Dan Adkins, Gene Colan, Marshall Rogers, Terry Austin, Tom Palmer, Paul Smith, Marie Severin, Jack Kirby and, of course, Doc's creator, Steve Ditko, who, sadly, never got to do many full covers with the character!

Doc Strange 169, the debut issue of his ongoing series remains my favorite Doc image after all these years. Dan Adkins hit it out of the park. I'm also a fan of the masked Doc, and several of these great covers showcase that blue wonder as well. Great stuff!
