Marvel Super Heroes #12 (Dr. Strange)
Issue(s): Marvel Super Heroes #12 (Dr. Strange story only)
And if things weren't already weird, they get weird now.
Strange and Augustyne get into trouble both because of Augustyne's orphium obsession and because lots of mages want to fight Strange to increase their rep. But they do manage to get rid of the book, and Augustyne eventually gives up on orphium.
There is an interesting story behind this issue and a follow-up in Marvel Super Heroes #14. According to Augustyne Phyffe's entry on the Appendix, which was written by Jean-Marc Lofficier himself, these issues were a couple unrelated of inventory stories, with the original intention unknown. So Lofficier and Thomas made some changes and scripted the two stories so that they would both be about Augustyne Phyffe (a newly invented character).

It seems Jonathan Hickman remembered this story, because Strange visited the Bazaar again during his New Avengers run. Or maybe it was anothe bazaar where demonic beings trade in magical objects?
