5.0 out of 5 stars heady stuff, 28 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars strange indeed, 28 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because it was selling cheap. I'm a big doctor strange fan but peter gillis' writing has never really done much for me coupled with some very ordinary artwork it is just about readable. At times it's not a really bad story, but gillis never really "gets" dr strange's character and the whole thing is very two dimensional. Also, this story really starts in the last three issues of dr strange's own comic. sadly those issues are not reprinted here. there are many better Dr strange graphic novels out there. get them before considering this.

5.0 out of 5 stars swamp fever, 28 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
comics don't get much better than this. everybody says how wonderful alan moore's run on the book was (and it was brilliant) but he never would have had the chance to shine without these moody atmospheric originals. Art and storytelling combine to present a series of stories that stand the test of time and, in my opinion, are streets ahead of anything currently being produced.

4.0 out of 5 stars western nostalgia, 28 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First, despite the amazon info these are region free dvds. A nice collection of nostalgic shows; the picture/sound quality is ok except for the Laramie disc which is pretty poor. three discs are in colour, wagon train is black and white. buy it if you like old westerns,

5.0 out of 5 stars tarzan russ manning, 2 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
took me a while to get hold of this book for a reasonable price but eventually got a copy from the book depository. so worth the wait ,the art reproduction is just gorgious, a little bit retro but suites the art perfectly. the actual art work is sublime. russ manning is at the height of his career his figure work and story telling are second to none. there is a sense of grace and beauty on every page tarzan is the ultimate noble savage, jane an inevtable female compliment. a critic might say that the characters are just too perfect; but you only need to look at the villains to see manning is equally able to depict the darker side of humanity. do, do buy this book.. and do take a look at mannings other great work, magnus robot fighter.

5.0 out of 5 stars avengers series 5., 22 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
having just bought avengers series 5 from amazon i thought i'd feedback my experience. i didn't use marketplace sellers because, although they were a good deal cheaper i was wary of getting a product with a dodgy soundtrack (see previous reviews). the set arrived really quickly, (free p and p.). i've only watched two episodes so far but the sound seems absolutely fine. in addition the disks all have v3 printed on the shinny (play) side of each disk (need a strong light and good eyesight to see it). - which apparently indicates a revised printing. it's a shame that amazon hasn't made it clear which version of the disks they are selling. oh, and i surpose i should mention that the actual episodes are absolutely superb... but you all knew that anyway. i hope that this review is helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars original clone, 31 July 2011
many years ago(1995) marvel published "spider man clone genesis" covering the original gerry conway issues but annoyingly omitting the first two chapters of the story; and in addition credits and titles were removed. now we have the all singing all dancing update. and it is an improvement.the story is now complete; issues 139-150 plus the first three pages of issue 151. all credits and titles restored. however we then get 250 or so pages of, in my opinion, very second rate stories carrying on (if that's the right expression) the saga. a sad case of more is less. the original story is a classic of its time and still reads very well today. the additional stories serve only to lessen it's impact; (and bump up the price of the book). so: buy the book for the main feature; a superb story packed with emotion, trauma and drama telling the twisted tale of the jackal's miguided quest for revenge and spider-man's efforts to stay alive and to hold onto his sanity in the face of a calculated physical and emotional onslaught. ok it's not shakespear but it is a cracking good read. as for the other stories in the book...... oh, and finally; the 1995 book had a very interesting introduction by gerry conway. no sign of it in this edition though. shame.

Dr. Strange: Into the Dark Dimension (Doctor Strange)
Dr. Strange: Into the Dark Dimension (Doctor Strange)
by Roger Stern
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars into the dark dimension, 27 July 2011
ok. a nice run of stories by roger stern and paul smith culminating in an exellent three part adventure in the dark dimension where clea (and the good doctor) battle umar and an assortment of otherworldly villains. nice human touches on the way... some of roger sterns best work. he always seems to write better when he's teamed with a good artist. the one issue with art by bret blevins is also an exellent and poignant story. but. the series starts in the middle of stern and smith's run; there are four fine stories by them which occur prior to those in this collection (issues 56,65,66,and67) which really should have been included here as they set the scene and flesh out the characters for what is to come. (a bit of issue 67 is included as a sort of prologue but it doesen't really work). also, somewhat bizarely, issue 74 is included in this book, written and drawn by a completely different (and in my opinion vastly inferior) team. the story is in addition a part of a much bigger, and very convoluted story about "the beyonder". don't ask. so; a very nice book with a strong storyline and at times quite stunning art that, put together with a little more care could have been perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars end game at last, 3 Mar. 2011
finally, volume 5. the wrap up to alan moore's fabulous jaspers/fury storyline, one of the most powerful and satisfying storylines i've ever read. moore makes his characters wonderfully human and "real" and writes a cracking story with drama humour pathos, the works. despite it being only a comic book you find yourself really caring what happens to these characters. alan davis' art is equally superb. following this jamie delano takes over (most of) the scripting, alan davis continues to draw the strip and we have sixteen or so very fine stories, mostly from the monthly captain britain comic. alan davis writes and draws the final story and brings the series to a very satifying conclusion, tying up a lot of loose ends in the process. in addition this volume reprints the cherubim from capt. b. 2, 11-14 (a nice addition to round off the series). overall this series of graphic novels featuring the entire run of the captains uk adventures has made a superb addition to my collection; ranging from the average, (capt. britain vols.1 and 2) to the really dire; capt. b. in spiderman comics;( vol.2 and 3) to the quirky bizare black knight series(vols.3 and 4) to the wonderful reimagining of the character by davis thorpe and moore(in vols.4 and 5). ideally i'd have liked to see the black knight story concluded in vol.3, the jaspers/fury storyline concluded in vol.4; and the first chapters of that story in colour but there you go. nevertheless this was the first british marvel hero produced in britain and the series does him proud.
