BONUS REVIEW by "Doc" Schaefer


Marvel is back to new #1 issues again. And right out of the gate, Doctor Strange is back. And while I have always had a soft spot for the Sorcerer Supreme, this is a poor man's Steven Strange. Having lost his access to magic, Steven turns back into the depressed useless human being that he was back in his origin. And while concept wise, Mark Waid's story is definitely unique, it cuts out a huge section of the Doctor Strange mythos. No more Eye of Agamottto. no more Cloak of Levitation. And worst of all he turns for help to his polar opposite, Tony Stark. And Tony shoot him off into space to search out more magic. Another problem is that in all honesty, when Strange is in his Iron Man-esce spacesuit, its hard to tell him apart from Tony Stark. And while Jesus Saiz art is epic, it cannot hide the fact that this Doctor Strange without his gimmick.

I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
