When Marvel first announced a solo Doctor Strange movie, most people weren't even sure who he was! Even though Doctor Strange is an influential and important character in Marvel Comics since the Golden Age, the Sourcerer Supreme hasn't been front and center until recently.
Now that Marvel has sucessfully introduced the mystic arts into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we all know who Doctor Strange is and are clamoring to catch up on all of his adventures before his next appearance in Avengers: Infinity War.
In fact, Doctor Strange had a bigger opening than Iron Man - the movie that kicked off the entire MCU.
If you're a hardcore comics collector or you just recently fell in love with Doctor Strange - we have some exciting news for you.
One of the world's largest and most reknowned Doctor Strange Collections is currently up for auction on eBay.
Check out the description of this massive and priceless collection below:
Up for auction is one of the largest collections of Doctor Strange comics and memorabilia in the world. It contains original art by Frank Brunner, Gene Colan, Dan Adkins, Alex Ross, Mike Allred, Bruce Timm and many, many, more. Hundreds of items of apparel including t-shirts, hats, and socks (all unworn!) You get every Doctor Strange sculpture, Heroclix figure, and variant cover that has ever been released. You get ultra rare trading cards, magazines, posters, books, toys, and video games. You even get some one-of-a-kind items like a Doctor Strange Ouija Board. You get 7 copies of Strange Tales #110 (Doc's first appearance) including a Signature Series Stan Lee 5.5 unrestored. Not only do you get a Doctor Strange costume with light up eye of Agamotto, you also get all the furniture and poster racks you see in these images to display the collection properly. You get EVERY American comic book that Doctor Strange has appeared in, including Overstreet prototypes, up until November of 2016. This includes one of the world's largest collections of foreign comics and graphic novels featuring Doctor Strange. And to top it off 10% of this auction will go to charity.
Before anyone thinks I've been spending too much time on the astral plane consider this... with the Benedict Cumberbatch movie from Marvel Studios, Doctor Strange has now entered the collective consciousness in the same way as Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and The Guardians of The Galaxy. He has become a modern pop culture icon. You will not find this amount of stuff anywhere else. Collectors from all over the globe have been contacting me to consider them first in selling certain items, but I want to take this time to offer the complete collection. For those that care, consider that 33% of that auction goes to taxes and thousands of dollars go to eBay fees and shipping (which I will cover).
And now for some photos!

In Marvel's Doctor Strange, Dr. Stephen Strange's (Benedict Cumberbatch) life changes after a car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he looks for healing, and hope, in a mysterious enclave. He quickly learns that the enclave is at the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying reality. Before long, Strange is forced to choose between his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
Doctor Strange is directed by Scott Derrickson, and written by Derrickson, Jon Spaihts, and C. Robert Cargill, and stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton.
