Just amazingly good. Now for volume 2.
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!Read more ›
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.
