We at AP2HYC are big fans of the Folio Society, especially since they started releasing special collector’s editions of Marvel Heroes. The independent publisher, which takes classic books and creates stunning and artistic new editions, has has a regular must-visit booth for us at comic cons and we are very excited about their latest release this week.
Continuing their Marvel Heroes series – which already features collections for Thor, Spider-Man, Hulk, Black Panther, and Captain America – the Folio Society have released a Doctor Strange collection earlier this week.
From their press release:
ABOUT DOCTOR STRANGE
Let the Sorcerer Supreme guide you through a truly mind-bending collection in Doctor Strange, Folio’s fifth volume in the Marvel Heroes series. Explore another dimension of Super Hero comics by legends including Stan Lee, Steve Ditko and P. Craig Russell.
Take a trip to the outer reaches of comic-book consciousness with Doctor Strange. Marvel’s Master of the Mystic Arts celebrates his 60th anniversary with this kaleidoscopic collection from Folio. Former Marvel Editor in Chief Roy Thomas selects and introduces fourteen of the Sorcerer Supreme’s most dazzling exploits, created by comic-book legends including Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Brian K. Vaughan and Jason Aaron.
Every tale in this truly eldritch edition has been scanned directly from original comics. It also includes a stunningly accurate replica of Strange Tales #115, the 1963 Marvel anthology in which the Doctor reveals his startling origin story. Multiple-award-winning Doctor Strange artist Marcos Martín provides original cover art for this edition, as well as designing hypnotic blue and purple endpapers, and a sulphurous yellow slipcase bearing the esoteric Super Hero’s iconic Seal of the Vishanti.
Following previous volumes in Folio’s Marvel Heroes series — Captain America, Spider-Man, Hulk and Thor — Doctor Strange will spirit you away to some of the most bizarre corners of the Marvel Multiverse.
