*Marvel: We conclude our Slab Happy summer event with the first appearance of the Master of the Mystic Arts, Dr. Strange, soon to be portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch on the big screen. The good doctor first appeared as a back-up feature by Stan Lee & Steve Ditko in Strange Tales #110, the first in a regular series of clever little mystic mystery adventures before graduating to the bigger stage of several of his own series from the late 1960’s to date. This copy is graded by CBCS as 5.5 (FN-) and priced at £1500, which represents a good investment potential for a major Marvel character and impending movie franchise! (It’s a shame they didn’t think to feature Dr Strange on the cover — I doubt Paste-Pot Pete will ever get his own movie!). Thus ends our Slab Happy event, but we’re sure to come across more third party graded books in the future for those that have to have ’em!
