Marvel Team-Up Vol. 1 021The Spider and The Sorcerer!
Writer: Len Wein
Artist: Sal Buscema
Inkers: F. Giacoia, D. Hunt
Colorist: Glynis Wein
Letterer: Dave Hunt
Originally published: May 1974

Spidey and Dr. Strange vs. Xandu. Spider-Man gets hypnotized and acts like a bad guy, which is pretty fun. The whole thing devolves pretty quickly, though, into an early 1960s-style multi-page fight / bore-fest. A cool idea goes awry when Spidey and Strange exchange powers – including, somehow, Spidey’s web shooters – to defeat Xandu.

The whole thing was also really way too similar to the Strange story in ASM Annual 2.

I like crazy trippy backgrounds in Dr. Strange books usually, but Sal didn’t pull it off as well as some of the other artists I’ve seen.
