These are accompanied by several reprints from previous Doctor Strange series: Doctor Strange: The Oath #1 (2011), Doctor Strange (2015 series) #1, Strange Tales #110 & #115 (1963/4), and Marvel Premiere #14 (1972).
The Prelude titles introduce us to the “Masters of the Mystic Arts” - a group of mystic martial artists, headquartered in a mystic martial artistic headquarters up a mountain somewhere oriental, and led by the (female) Ancient One. There are some familiar names here, including Wong and Mordo, both of whom are fully-fledged Masters. There is a story involving a rejected candidate for the order who has acquired a mystic weapon of immense power, some underlying tensions between the Masters, and eventually a split as some of the Masters decide that there is a better way of dealing with problems, involving sneering and contempt, among other attributes.
I assume that Dr Stephen Strange will be walking into the middle of all this when he makes his house call during the film.
The artwork is excellent for this story - which runs through all three issues - and the scripting is also very good; however, this is the film universe, and not the comic book one, so the characters are all new to us regular readers, but the characterisation of the Ancient One, Wong and Mordo fully match the requirements of said readers.Read more ›
