Upcoming Ditko - Doctor Strange Masterworks reprint

As expected, the softcover releases of the Marvel Masterworks line gets to the original 23rd volume in November with the first Doctor Strange release.  As originally, they're stopping a few issues short of the full Ditko run, but they are including the covers unlike the original hardcover (most of those by Jack Kirby).  Ditko doesn't show up again until volume 39 of the original run (Hulk v2), so if they keep the monthly schedule and original release order (Marvel's movie schedule might cause some shifting around to get more books out before the relevant movies, like they recently moved Iron Man v1) that won't be until 2012, and Doctor Strange v2 won't be out until 2013.

  1. Oh, well. So much for a single volume, color, reprinting of Ditko's Dr. Strange run.

  2. Yeah, that's a bit of a shame. I think the only realistic chance of a full Ditko run collection in the near future is if a Doctor Strange movie gets made, then you'd probably see a DOCTOR STRANGE OMNIBUS in that slightly larger format.
