More rare Dr. Strange stuff

Got these in the mail recently. Superaventuras Marvel #2 and #6 from Brazil. Love the weird re-drawing of Frank Brunner's Dr. Strange Vol. 2 #1 on the first one. The second comic is in bad shape on the spine, but both of these are reprints of the classic Marvel Premiere Dr. Strange run from the early 70's and the covers were too neat to resist... Gotta love how they call him Dr. Estranho there!

Superaventuras Marvel #2

Superaventuras Marvel #6

Also a recent arrival is this issue of Spider-Man Weekly from the UK that reprints the classic Amazing Spider-Man Annual #2 story, illustrated by Steve Ditko with a cover only printed in Britain:

Spider-Man Comics Weekly #23

Finally, my wife's Valentine's Day gift to me was an unopened box of Spider-Man The Animated Series Valentines from 1998! These are actually quite rare, and I've been looking for a set for years.
