How about this one? Can you believe that this was the first Dr. Strange solo cover? First, he took a back seat to the Human Torch, then to the duo of Johnny & Ben and finally to the gang from S.H.I.E.L.D. While this series has plenty of strong covers, I think they missed a great opportunity by not showcasing Ditko's powerful connection to Dr. Strange on more covers. I like to think that this cover was commissioned specifically because it was Ditko's swansong on the strip. In all likelihood, it was pure coincidence. What a great cover, though. I really think that a character as ethereal as Eternity could only have been designed by Ditko. A nice way to end a fabulous stint at Marvel, as his final Spidey cover is not one of my favourites.
