"I am not seeing what a bunch of monsters, a psychopath, a Kung Fu guy and a frankly useless useless vampire slayer are going to do?"
This statement more of less sums up the use most of these characters were in this story. I mean He could have chosen and random heroes from the marvel universe, and they are would have been as good/bad a job as these guys.
The Damnation mini series and the Dr Strange regular issues I would have rated 5 stars. They were great. I quite like the like the price of magic despite the motives. Many saying like the "road to hell is paved with good intentions", or "no good deed goes unpunished" come to mind. I like the change that they made in Steven Strange's character his arrogance from is early pre-magical life is more apparent.
The Ghost Rider oneshot I though would have been a good ending (4 stars), but the other part like Iron Fist 78 - 80, when did this happen? I know there was a "time difference", but it added nothing to the main story, I might have done something for Iron Fist story but it was useless mini series.3 stars.
The Scarlet Spider 15 - 17. That was the point of this? I much prefered Kane as the Scarlet Spider and seeing this version of Ben Reilly in action just confirms my opinion. 2 Stars.
Another thing I did not like about this book is a the beginning the writers went to the trouble of writing a chronology of where each comic fits into the timeline. As this is the complete collection I do not thing it would have been such a big ask to format the book so the issues were in this chronological order with Ghost Rider at the end so the big plan was not given away, but no the lazy formatting was the issues 1-4 of Damnation, Dr Strange 386 - 389, Ghost Rider One shot, Iron Fist 7 - 80, and finally Scarlet Spider 15 -17. This is just a lack of effort and nothing else. It is a shame as the Mini series itself was very good the last two companions just let it down. The is a cover gallery with the variant covers of the Damnation mini series. If you are a Dr Strange or Ghost Rider fan this will be an enjoyable collection the other midnight sons are just useless. I still have no idea why the Scarlet Spider was included he has no connection to magic or the darkness. I would have rated this 3.5 stars but the strength of the main story along with Dr Strange and Ghost Rider rounded it up for me.
This is an ‘epic’ Doctor Strange story, following on from events in “Doctor Strange – God of Magic” (which you should read first), and guest-starring numerous characters, most of whom the good Doctor never even meets, as Wong has his own plot running through this story, and his own team of “Midnight Sons” to carry it out and rescue Steven Strange from his good intentions.
The main story weaves through the Damnation and Doctor Strange issues, and you should follow the reading guide at the front and read Damnation #1, then Doctor Strange #386, then Damnation #2, Doctor Strange, #387, and so on, and leave the others till afterwards, as they are off-stage episodes that are not relevant to the main drive of the story.
Despite being a big story with hosts of guests, it is primarily a Doctor Strange (and Wong and Bats) story, and brings him/them back to their place as one of the big-name titles in the Marvel universe, from which they have been absent for too long. I grew up with Marvel Comics, and I remember when Dr Strange was just a back-up mystery story in Strange Tales, which just got bigger and bigger, until it lost its way, but never went away, and became a character/series that many big-name creators wanted a shot at resurrecting, but sales never warranted it.
Now, thanks to his film and the recent Avengers one, he has been allowed his chance to shine again, and while I didn’t really like what Jason Aaron did with him, the ‘new guy’ Donny Coates has made some changes that appear to be going in a direction that appeals to me.
Anyway, this is a big ‘event’ story that is character-driven rather than being just a big action story about something-or-other that is relatively unimportant and nobody will care about once it is over, This is reintroducing the Doctor Strange of old, and reminding everyone just why he was so popular with writers and artists, if not the paying public; though now the paying public seems to be getting on board too…
