In the first ten chapters of this volume we have doctor strange at his very very best. Superb story- telling and breathtaking art by Englehart, Colan, and Palmer make for ,( in my opinion,), the definitive version of this comic. After meeting God and Mother Nature in the previous volume he now battles Eternity, Dracula and the Devil rounding off one of my favourite comic runs of all time The final five stories aren't that bad either with some nice art by rudy nebres and paul craig Russell, and a story line that, while probably not following Steve Englehart's original plan at least provides a reasonable conclusion to the Bicentennial storyline.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marred by an abrupt change in creative direction 14 Aug. 2013
By Jim Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was an enjoyable but ultimately unsatisfying reading experience. The creative team on Dr. Strange, writer Steve Englehart and artist Gene Colan, were a great fit for the book. Thanks to their efforts the book achieved monthly status for a time.

The issues collected here start with what promises to be another long running story arc. The storyline is vintage Englehart/Colan but unfortunately there is no real payoff. Englehart is gone in some sort of dispute with Marvel and Colan leaves at the same time. Editor Marv Wolfman and various artists (some quite good) have to step in and try to tie up loose ends and get the book moving forward again. Dr. Strange is not the sort of book that is easy to get a feel for; they are not completely successful. Production problems also crop up with the book as originally published as covers get out of synch with interior stories when a deadline was missed.

Also in this collection is the crossover with Dracula when Englehart was still with the book and Colan was drawing both features. It's probably the most satisfying story in the entire collection.

There is also a rather strange (no pun intended) annual. This has obviously been edited heavily to squeeze into current continuity and the story is somewhat disjointed. Twenty odd years later it was published more or less as originally intended as the graphic novel "Dr. Strange: What is it that disturbs you, Stephen?" The latter is far better in my opinion.

The book has a very interesting introduction by writer Englehart. He apparently did a great deal of research into the occult scene on both coasts and incorporated a fair amount of it in his stories. He also seems to take it quite seriously which was surprising.

Extras are fairly generous with a reprint cover and unused and original art.

Recommended to Strange fans but this isn't the best introduction to the character.
5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Doctor Strange collection! 28 Feb. 2016

Volumes 5 and 6 combine to make up the definitive Doctor Strange run. Frank Brunner's art is missed but Gene Colan, Alfredo Alcala, Rudy Nebres and P. Craig Russell all do great work. The abrupt departure of Steve Englehart causes some jarring story shifts buts that's when the art gets really interesting. Great from beginning to end.

I've read almost all of them. I need some more, I guess I will have to wait for the Dr Strange Sorcerer Supreme to come out. They have all been good so far.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Englehart, Colan, & Russell, too 12 Sept. 2013
By Graphic Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great and funky stories by Englehart and Colan came to a close in these issues. The whole "magic in America" storyline came to an abrupt end here but it's a fun ride. And the cherry on top is P. Craig Russell's beautiful annual in its original incarnation.
