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.
