Doctor Strange: Issue 01


Last week when I went to the comic store, I chanced upon the first issue of the new Doctor Strange arc. I was not even aware that there was a new arc! I suppose I’m a little out of the loop. That tends to happen when your mind is preoccupied with other things, like work, family, music, and so forth. Anyway, I picked up a copy of this along with my regular cache of comics, and I am glad that I did. This first issue really bodes well.

I think the writing and artwork are both outstanding. I was immediately sucked into the story, which is unusual. Often, it takes a little while for me to get hooked in to an arc. Not so with this one.

I don’t want to give away too much of the story. Basically, Doctor Strange is becoming aware of an unusual spike in weird phenomena, which he senses is the result of a “coming storm.”

I’ll leave you with a quote from the issue that I really liked. Hopefully, you will pick up a copy and find it as engaging as I did.

If you ask me, it’d be an awfully boring life if nothing was ever weird. It’s the weird ones who change the world.

  1. I’m just beginning to appreciate some of the Marvel universe thru movies. It was mostly Archie, Richie Rich, Andy Capp, Peanuts, Spy vs. Spy and Dick Tracy for me when I was growing up!

    • Love Spy v Spy! BTW – if you have not checked out the new “Afterlife with Archie” and “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” series, you are in for a shock. Very edgy and dealing with intense themes. Not for the timid.

  2. As for the weird quote, it reminds me of the film, Dope, which I recently saw. At the end the guy says that he never fit in. Instead of it being a mere curse, it’s also a blessing because he can see situations from different perspectives. Interesting flick.
