Manic Strangesday--Gene Colan Is Trippin' Balls

Remember that time when we all died?

What? You don't remember? We all died? The whole planet destroyed?!?

Let Doctor Strange remind you...


Still nothing?

Yup, Earth blowed up good. We all died. Not a hoax, not a dream, not an imaginary story!!

Well, maybe not so fast on the "not a dream" portion. Because when Stephen investigates into Nightmare's realm...

Yes, Nightmare had captured Eternity, and forced him to dream of Earth's destruction.

So, it was just a dream, right?


But still, Doctor Strange just rescued you, right? So now you can make everything all better, right?


Fortunately for all of us, The Ancient One comes...and he kicks Eternity's ass!!

After Celestial Beings MMA, Eternity reconsiders...

See, we all died, and were recreated.

You still don't remember??

What about you, Strange?

We're all coming down, bro. We are all.

From Doctor Strange #13 (1976), where Steve Englehart, Gene Colan and Tom Palmer were blowing our minds...

Eternity does talk some nonsense, doesn't he?

Those final words have a specific use in terms of the trippy Seventies - are they implying Strange drug-dreamed the whole thing?

Good GOD, but that is some beautiful art!
