The art was great. Some of those pages could be retro Magic Eye Marvel blacklight posters. So glad to see more Strange. With rumors (actual plans?) of a Dr. Strange movie, isn't it about time for his own title again?

So Marvel doesn't do annuals for several years, and now gives us ones that are 38 pages instead of 32? (Thanos Annual was 38 too) I'm paying an extra dollar for 6 more pages? Annuals used to be 64 pages! You can't even manage to do 48?


Possibly the best Dr. Strange story for its writing/plot and art in the last decade.  As a Dr. Strange fan for over 32 years of my life (I'm 41), I've been disappointed in the how Marvel has handled him for the last 15 years.  The 6 issue mini series "Strange" should have been the origin of the Ultimate Dr. Strange, not a revamp of the original. "The Oath" mini-series was a good story, but the art was average. The final mini-series "The Doctor is Out" was bland in both story and the art just didn't fit.  Then we have to address his time in the New Avengers series where he was seen as a man effectively having a crisis of faith or calling.  He finally gets his full powers back with an updated costume I'm not thrilled with (seriously, skin tight spandex)?  This story is the first step in at least really advancing the character and treating him as a 3d being.  He has a calling, purpose and flaws.  I'm not saying I'm blown away by the direction the story is taking as he went this path before, but at least it's consistent with that path.  The art was beautiful.  I can only say I wish that Marvel would keep this team and let them at least do a bi-monthly book as Dr. Strange for many years used to be.  I can well understand that the art probably took that period of time to accomplish.  I definitely want to see more!  A+
