Gossip: A Dr Strange Event in December to Relaunch the Series?

The current Doctor Strange comic book series by Mark Waid and Jesus Saiz has been the subject of a number of delays. It’s not the only such Marvel comic book suffering such at the moment, Fantastic Four, Tony Stark: Iron Man and Captain America have suffered similar, and now it appears that the series is to conclude, even while it remains critically acclaimed and a decent-enough seller.

Bleeding Cool gets the word that some of this may be played for and got. The delays have been in place to eke the series out and to make plans for whatever is to come at the end of the year – because whatever the big event from Marvel Comics in December is, Doctor Strange will be involved. So while there are no Doctor Strange comic books solicited for October and November, I am told to look for something Doctor Strange-related launching big at Marvel in December. And a new Doctor Strange comic book spinning out of it, either in December or at the beginning of 2020.

Could it be in the pages of Incoming? Maybe.

Here’s a look at the Doctor Strange comic books still lined up.
