Strange Tales #125 (Dr. Strange)
Issue(s): Strange Tales #125 (Dr. Strange story only)
Review/plot: Dr. Strange vs. Baron Mordo in a mystic battle.
Mordo tries to call upon the Hoary Hand of Hoggoth, but as Strange points out, Hoggoth does not favor the wicked, and his attack fails. That's not fair! Strange has called upon Dormammu and his invocations have been successful.
We also have some Agamotto development. Strange uses the Eye of Agamotto - a device that will later be called the Orb of Agamotto. We also see his amulet functioning the way his Eye of Agamotto amulet will, but it's not until issue #127 that he'll receive the actual Eye of Agamotto amulet.
Just sort of working out all the abracadetails, i guess.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: This issue ends with Dr. Strange in his astral form. Strange Tales #126 begins with Dr. Strange returning to his body after the battle in this story.

that flesh-toned skull cap is really not a good look for Mordo.
