Brendan: I've been commissioned by Marvel Comics to write and draw a new Dr Strange and Spider-Man three issue mini series. I'm just getting into it and I expect it to be finished early next year. It's quite a thrill to finally get to draw the Doctor, my favourite Marvel character - and Spidey too.

To harmonise myself with the sublime 'Ditko Dimension', I have been digitally remixing some of his original 60's pages, trying to get a feel for them from another 'fresh' visual angle... And in doing so, realizing just what a total genius he is.

And if anyone hasn't purchased the new Blake Bell Fantagraphics Ditko book - I strongly recommend it.

This has left a Dr-Strange-and Spiderman-comic-by-Brendan-McCarthy shaped hole in my head.

I've long held this theory that Brendan McCarthy actually exists in some alternate universe where he's rightfully recognised as the comic-strip industry's most prolific and successful creator.

Over here, in our deprived dimension, we can only dream of seeing his best-selling books, like Z-Men, Sorrow, The Weirlock, Captain Cracking and Abel Solvix amongst others.

Occasionally, thanks to a tear in the time-space continuum, we do get glimpses of his work... like Paradax and Mirkin , which actually ran to 108 issues over at Earth-Mc2.

With news of a Dr. Strange, Spider-Man mini-series it seems as if the wall between our universes has been torn asunder, and we are now about to experience a veritable tsunami of McCarthy!

The re-mixed colors look really nice. Dissonance.
