Review

"And I don't know what demon Bachalo and Nowlan sold their souls to in order to be able to create the knockout artwork that they've filled this book with, but whichever one it was, it was definitely the right one." --Mass Movement --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I think this is one of Marvels best titles out there right now. Granted, I've read the other reviews and if you're an old school fan and/or married to unerring narrative then it wont be perfect for you. But I'm less familiar with Doc Strange and in a rebooted marvel universe, it makes sense to me that the character should be reborn. That aside I actually find the storyline impressive, intelligent and gripping. It doesn't conform to the normative 5 issue arc, there are multiple branches emerging from what I agree feels like a prologue, but that's okay. I am fascinated by this witty and quite beautiful exploration of this quite mysterious character, and the world that Aaron is creating I think is an exciting one. I love the artwork. I've never been a fan of Chris Bachalo but his style is perfect for this and the depth and range of what's on the panels is gorgeous. Even the issue covers, in the style of classic Doctor Strange depictions is a very nice touch indeed. I think this is a charming and brilliant read and I look forward to what I hope will be a fulfilling series.

Well, this was a real surprise. Picked this up not expecting much and was blown away. Aaron has a completely new twist on the good doctor and it works! The sublime artwork by Bachalo helps, of course, but it is the storyline, the way in which Strange's relationship with the mystical world around us is handled and the whole really unique ethos applied to a jaded character that makes this so good. Not since Steve Ditko's work on portraying other dimensions have I seen anything to compare with Bachalo's take on the other dimensions.

Just amazingly good. Now for volume 2.

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 1 Jun. 2016
Format: Hardcover
The story from the first five issues of Marvel’s new Doctor Strange series is collected as Doctor Strange Vol. 1: The Way of the Weird.

I have been with Doctor Strange from the beginning - I can remember reading Strange Tales when I was a child and seeing this new series featuring a chap with a moustache going into a haunted house and exposing the house as being sentient. In subsequent issues, he acquired a red cloak and all the trappings we came to associate with the character. After Steve Ditko and Stan Lee moved on, we had a succession of artists who managed to keep the weird going, until Gene Colan moved in and redefined just what you could do with a comic-book story (while Jim Steranko in the other feature in Strange Tales did the same thing, but turned his attention inwards to panel design). After Roy Thomas & Gene Colan’s series ended, Steve Englehart and Frank Brunner came along and did it all again, then Gene Colan returned and kept doing it; until internal politics sent Steve Englehart over to DC and then on to other things. And so it went.

This was one of my favourite comic book series of all time, but those early days were never recaptured - just look at the artwork in the Doctor Strange Masterworks; when I saw how Ditko’s artwork was reproduced on good quality paper there, it got even better! But that was all a long time ago, and the series never really got going again in the 21st century - this is listed as only being Volume 4; there are (relative) newcomers who have had more series than that just in the 21st century.

Anyway, enough of my whining about what’s gone; time to whine about what’s here!

I'm old school.
This is a new post-modern, hip and trendy, light and jokey, psychedelic horror-fest version of Lee & Ditko's weirdest creation.
I should hate it.
The comedy is glib and takes the edge from the drama playing out as it never feels the story has any gravitas and any threat feels slight.
Strange himself is drawn younger than usual and his character has morphed to a more cocky, womanizing teen than a serious leading man.
I should hate it.
I don't. I quite like it.
It's energetic and atmospheric with excellent new ideas of the effects of Dark Magic on a human exponent.
Bacalo's overly weird and otherworldly art style is actually a bonus in this series, moreso than anything else I've seen him work on and the writing plays to his strengths.
I withhold the fifth star from this review as the volume feels incomplete, more a prologue than a chapter but in the year when we await the Big Screen debut - Doctor Strange is highly recommended.

One of my favourite titles marvel has released so far and is a good introduction for the character as the new film is coming out. I enjoyed some of the reveals and twists within the issues. My only concern is that I feel I need to spend more money to find out what's next. The character of Strange is charming and entertaining; whilst the presence of the Zelma Stanton character allows newcomers to approach this weird and psychodellic comic with some wonder. Loved the artwork and story. I can see why some people would be turned off by this character but I recommend giving it a go. If the issues are as good as this novel I can't wait to get them.
