Strange Sunday: From the Marvel Vault Dr Strange cover by Mario Alberti

Doctor Strange From the Marvel Vault cover by Mario Alberti

A reader named Toby sent me this nice high-res image of a new cover by artist Mario Alberti!  This is the cover to Doctor Strange: From the Marvel Vault #1.  I love the details on the walls framing the orb like window on Doc’s Sanctum Sanctorum.  From the Marvel Vault is the byline of inventory stories being published for the first time, ala Marvel Fanfare.  This one should be good, written by one of my favorite Doc Strange writers, Roger Stern, and illustrated by Neil Vokes.  It has languished in the Marvel Vault since 1998.  I can’t understand why Marvel doesn’t have Stern do a new monthly series, but I will take what I can get.  Nuff Said!


  1. I can't imaging why they don't have him writing a new monthly Doc book either- when I did this story and the previous UNTOLD TALES OF SPIDER-MAN special with Roger,it was exactly his feel for Strange's character and world that made the project that much more exciting...even Doc can't read the corporate mind of Marvel...;o)

  2. Great minds think alike! I had forgotten about that Untold Tales special, I still have all those and should re-read them soon. Thanks for writing, Neil!
