If ominous portents, possible interpretations of Mayan calendars, (and my "Magic 8-ball") are to be believed... today - the 12th day of the 12th month in this 12th year (of the 2nd millennium) - could bring about...
THE END OF THE WORLD!
So, I thought it appropriate to bump the post that had been planned for
last weekend, this past weekend, today to display the 12th issue covers for DOCTOR STRANGE comics and how they, too, predict DOOMSDAY!

until Doctor Strange fixed it all.
If there is anything that is the opposite of the END of everything... it's ETERNITY!
(Although, oddly enough, Eternity is the one who helped re-create the world after it was destroyed in the storyline detailed above...hmmm...).

The 12th issue of Doctor Strange; Sorcerer Supreme saw Doc about to lose his head over the Enchantress...
Amara; the Enchantress? Hmmm.... well.... there are worse fates.

DEATH, LIFE and ... LOVE; which oft strides the fine line betwixt the two.
Strange Tales v1 # 123
What was essentially Doctor Strange's 12th issue of Strange Tales
if the world ends some time today... it's been a good time.
If for some reason the world is still spinning on the 13th, I'll post something new thereafter, and we'll try this whole "End of the World" deal all over again on the 21st.
