Doctor Strange #389 Review: The Terrible Trio

Doctor Strange explains to us that the portal he opened in Las Vegas attracted not only Mephisto, but also Dormammu, Nightmare, and Shuma-Gorath. They warred over who would enter our dimension, and Mephisto won, which left the other three in some sort of Necro-Realm. Dormammu has a proposal for Doctor Strange and the Avengers. Stephen […]

Wong and the Midnight Sons make their final stand against the hordes of Hell and the demonically-possessed Avengers. Before long, Mephisto himself arrives to gloat over having killed Johnny Blaze. However, Mephisto does not know that the Ghost Rider has become the king of Hell, and the tides may soon turn in favor of Wong. Doctor Strange: Damnation ends better than it began. While some of the deliberate lack of repentance on the part of Stephen Strange and the lack of focus on the members of the Midnight Sons that aren’t Wong and Strange does bother me, this final installment didn’t really get on my nerves as much as the first. Don’t get me wrong, this issue still has a myriad of problems that keep it from being required reading. This story was stretched to breaking point, and a good portion of what matters happened in the Ghost Rider issue. This book is a protracted third act. As far as plot-relevance goes, Blade, Doctor Voodoo, Bloodstone, Man-Thing, Scarlet Spider, Moon Knight, and Iron Fist may as well not be here. Even in their own tie-ins, Iron Fist and Scarlet Spider don’t really do anything important to the story. The follow-up story promises more with the Midnight Sons though, and that will hopefully come to something. Rod Reis’ artwork is a welcome presence in this book. His style lends itself to the ethereal and surreal nature of this setting and plot. The color gradience adds a unique atmosphere and generally looks quite good. Szymon Kudranski and Dan Brown handle the epilogue with the Midnight Sons and Doc Strange. The more realistic aesthetic does contrast Reis’ work in an odd manner, but it looks good too. Doctor Strange: Damnation #4 is a decent enough read. If you liked the rest of the story, you’ll like this one too. The fact that the story at least acknowledges that Strange’s idea was terrible from the start and ties it to personal problems helps a lot. Reis, Kudranksi, and Brown provide good visuals. Feel free to check it out.

We relive Bats hopping into Doctor Strange’s possessed body, and he shakes the Sorcerer Supreme of Mephisto’s delusion.

Avengers: Infinity War Gets an IMAX Poster, Still No Hawkeye

Avengers: Infinity War got yet another new poster this morning, this time for the IMAX release. Hot on the heels of yesterday’s huge poster drop, this one features 21 heroes surrounding the iconic Avengers “A”. Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet look ready to strike on the bottom. Most importantly (apparently) to fans, there is still […]

Doctor Strange #384 Review: Strange vs. Loki, Round One

Doctor Strange returns to the Sanctum Santorum to challenge Loki with the power of the Yggdrasil, the World Tree from Asgardia.

This is the beginning of the knockdown drag-out we’ve been waiting for between Doctor […]

‘Doctor Strange’ #25 Review: A Solid One-Off Tale

It’s business as usual for Doctor Strange once more. However, that’s actually a pretty morbid and surreal day. As such, Greenwich Village is turning into a horde of murderous demons, and Strange’s apprentice, Zelma Stanton, is not excluded from this. This exact scenario is actually really familiar for Doctor Strange, but he’s not sure why […]

Doctor Strange’s Wong Will Be In Avengers: Infinity War

Doctor Strange is just a few days away (at least for those of us in the the UK), with the mythical side of the MCU opening up a little. Seeing how that affects future films in the series will be quite interesting. It seems like there will be a constant from that realm popping up […]
