Strange Tales

Strange Tales was another title which followed a similar arc to titles such as Journey Into Mystery. It went through several format changes throughout its long run.

Beginning in 1951 after Timely Comics had given up it's superhero titles which made them popular in the 1940's, and had transitioned to the mantle of Atlas Comics, Strange Tales was initially a suspense/horror title. This was pre-comics code, and this book was filled with more than its share of gruesome images!

Many creative holdovers from the Timely era contributed to the book (Carl Burgos, Bill Everett, Syd Shores), along with many future and established superstars (Pete Morisi, Manny Stallman, Russ Heath, Joe Maneely, Reed Crandall, Gray Morrow).

Later, around issue #70 or so (1959), in the lead up to the revival of Marvel Comics, the book became a sci-fi/monster comic, with many members of the famous "bullpen," (Larry Lieber, Joe Sinnott, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Dick Ayers, Don Heck - and of course Stan Lee) gradually started finding more and more work in Strange Tales’ pages.

Shortly, after superheroes started to infiltrate the lexicon of comicdom again, thanks in large part to Marvel Comics, Strange Tales would transition once again.

The popularity of The Fantastic Four was so great, that Marvel decided to branch out and give individual members their own features. Thus with Strange Tales # 101 the HUMAN TORCH was given his own solo shot as the lead story. 

This proved to be a good move, and, very quietly, in issue #110 another hero was introduced - this one was not like anything ever seen in comics; DOCTOR STRANGE: Master of The Mystic Arts! Essentially a creation from the fertile mind of Steve Ditko (though Stan Lee was credited with writing and/or co-plotting), the world of Stephen Strange looked unlike anything else, thanks to Ditko’s deft hand, and the dimensions and characters he encountered were both chilling and thrilling! It took several issues for Doc to catch on, but he soon became a key figure in the Marvel legend…

Feeling like Marvel didn’t know what more they could do with the Human Torch solo series, they attempted to bolster it by adding THE THING for him to team up with beginning with issue #124.

This backfired on the basis of fans being content with seeing Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm in the Fantastic Four book. So they were gone with issue #135, giving way to the introduction of a new incarnation of a beloved favorite : NICK FURY, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now, we knew Nick from his WWII days, but here, perhaps informed by the “spy” craze (James Bond, Man From U.N.C.L.E., etc.), this was a contemporary Nick Fury, now leading a technologically sophisticated organization of spy-smashers against the evil collaborative HYDRA!

Both Fury and Dr. Strange would share Strange Tales until the end of its run with issue #168, dated May,1968.

The early pre-code horror stuff has skyrocketed in prices, as well as those featuring introductions of key characters during the hero-era!

Issue #110

What's Strange Tales #110 worth in 2021?

Strange Tales #110 was Marvel's first true entry into magic and as such is viewed as a seminal work of the era. Fans waited nearly 40 years from the 1978 attempt to bring Doctor Strange to light in the TV movie that famously missed the mark. They would finally get a treatment worth watching in 2016 with the portrayal given by actor, Benedict Cumberbatch. This caused the value of this issue to soar to record highs and has since settled down...some. With his popularity still at an all-time high and a second film in the works there's probably not going to be a chance to get any bargains anytime soon. Looking at what has happened with these values from 2013 when the film was announced till now will shed a lot more light on the subject. Prior to the film you could pick up a GD 2.0 for as little as $100. That same book has settled to around $800 now from nearly $1,000 in 2016. Likewise with a FN 6.0, now it will bring $2,800 down from nearly $4,000 in 2018 and just $1,000 in 2012. The premium grade of NM+ 9.6 enjoyed a tremendous increase as the highest recorded grade. It sold for nearly $45,000 in 2013 and the last recorded sale was 2016 when it brought $60,000. That was down $6,000 from the previously recorded sale of $66,000 in 2014. With the success of the Avengers Infinity and Endgame storylines and the fact another movie is on the horizon this is most likely just a lull in the increase. In fact this is probably the last chance one might get to pick up one of these books in this price range at all.

 

Why is this comic book valuable?

Strange Tales #110 brought the "Master of Black Magic", according to the splash page, to us for the first time, you know him as Doctor Strange. Another facet of the Marvel renaissance of characters that Stan Lee would usher in. Legendary artist known for his work on the Amazing Spider-man, Steve Ditko came up with the idea to take a completely new character in a direction that had not yet been explored. Sorcery and the mystical unknown that was magic! The issue would also introduce the world to the Ancient One, Nightmare and last but not least, Wong, Strange's long time friend and valet, also a Master of the Mystic Arts. The concept was an instant hit with young people, especially the college crowd, who were experimenting with new things and looking at the world in a new way. Ditko's visuals were surreal compared to everything else in the genre at the time and Lee's mystical vocabulary conjured up questions about history and mythology alike. It wasn't long before the team realized that they had built something that was going to last.
