Ebay: And of course, there's ebay. There are quite a few copies of this key issue comic up on ebay, and they're CGC graded as well. You know how I feel about buying non-CGC graded books on ebay. Buy unslabbed comics on ebay at your own peril.

WHY THIS ISSUE?
Make no mistake that the first appearance of Dr. Strange in Strange Tales #110 is an extremely hot key issue to get right now. Especially since Kevin Feige has talked about how a Dr. Strange movie will help to kick off Marvel's cinematic Phase III.
A Dr. Strange movie will most likely appear post Avengers 2 in 2015 or 2016, meaning you have some time but not a lot. You can bet that demand for this book from now until then will continue to heat up, and the closer it gets to Dr. Strange hitting the theaters, the more deeper you'll dig into your pocket for this book.
So, you know what I always say, Get in on this one as soon as you can!
