  Oh yay, another flashback. Its just what I hoped for...

  Kinda fun to see the difference between the art. But that said, this flashback issue was totally unnecessary, and was probably due to a missed deadline or something similar.

  I don't mind flashbacks and I can appreciate a re-telling, but there's no excuse for a straight up reprint issue.

  Annoying.

  They really needed to make sure they had a story for publication before they switched to monthly.

  I was tempted to give this more than one star, because man, Ditko was on fire in that story, it looks fantastic. But then I remembered I had already given this four stars the first time around, so one star it is!

  At least Marvel admitted they screwed up at the end. "The story that..umm... Took 2 months to complete"

  Hold up! Did the cover just ruin the twist for NEXT issue? That's a new low.
Reprint, nothing to see her. One star.
Seeing those old 60s stories sandwiched amongst the 70s issues reminds me of playing PS2 games on my PS3.

  As I understand it, Frank Brunner was somewhat notorious for missing deadlines. I assume that's what happened here.
The best thing about this issue is the famous letter from "Rev. Billingsley" (actually written by Steve Englehart) praising the handling of God in the Sise-neg story, which Stan Lee believed was real and was the only reason he didn't force Englehart to write a "clarification" that God in that story wasn't meant to be, y'know, God.

  A reprint issue in just the THIRD issue of a series? I think that's a new record! Only Brunner's artwork bookending the reprint saves this from being a one star issue.

  Probably would have skipped it anyways, since it's a reprint, but would it really have killed Marvel to scan this whole issue for MU?

  I'm not so much disturbed that this is a reprint than the cover making it look like a new story. Back from the dead when it's really a rehash of his first appearance? Uhmm, no.

1 star.

  I can appreciate that at the time, most people probably didn't know how Clea and Dr Strange met, especially given he's been through a few different titles by now. And at least the credits made it pretty clear it was a reprint, rather than previous times where they've just credited the original people which makes it look like Stan made a comeback.
