Strange Tales #145 (Dr. Strange)
Issue(s): Strange Tales #145 (Dr. Strange story only)
It's a fairly simple story. Dr. Strange defeats a mystic named Mr. Rasputin.
After the big epic Mordo/Dormammu story arc, this single issue magician fight feels a bit small potatoes. Still fun, though.
Quality Rating: C-

My Reprint: Essential Dr. Strange vol. 1
When Starlin was getting his start on Iron Man, he had an evil wizard named Mr. Rasputin and I've always wondered if it was supposed to be the same guy as here.

One bit I like here is that Rasputin, losing a magical duel with Strange, pulls out a plain old gun and shoots him.
It's a nice way to show both the limits of Strange;'s power and ground the story in a kind of reality.
