10 page Dr. Strange story "The Demon's Disciple!"

Characters Dr. Strange; Disciple (unnamed); The Demon
Synopsis Strange receives a desperate plea for help from a man who became the "disciple" of someone called "The Demon"; he thought it was "for kicks," but then realized how serious it really was! The Demon, sensing his disciple had fled to Strange, magically transports the man back to his lair, leaving only his clothes behind, and consigns the man to a pit beneath the floor. Strange tracks the man's location using the left-behind clothing, and soon confronts the evil mystic in an epic battle! Strange places a mystic veil over The Demon's mind, saying that in time it will be lifted, and he will know who it was that defeated him, and can destroy him. Strange frees the disciple, bidding him to go on his way and never look back.
