    Yet another of my favourite books gets cancelled with a bunch of dangling plotlines. I despair, I really do. Still, for what it's worth, I loved this volume. Mark Waid pens another great tale in the way that only he can and Kev Walker produces the best artwork of his career. At least they went out on a high. Sigh...

    Too bad this new series was cancelled after such a promising run. Again Waid found new twists to keep the characters and the story interesting (cf his Daredevil run). Good idea to have Doc back as a real surgeon and sorcerer supreme. Of course he's not supposed to be both at the same time. Yeah, right. This first plot (and last) is quite good; nice introduction to what could have been a good longer run... Sigh... A bit of action, a few twists, good dialogues, new (and old) characters; all is the Too bad this new series was cancelled after such a promising run.

A bit of action, a few twists, good dialogues, new (and old) characters; all is there. It's not deep or mind blowing but really entertaining, enhanced by Kev Walker's art. Don't know much of him but I'll keep an eye on him. He does a very cool Strange and even if his treatment of the magical world/creatures isn't revolutionary, it is very well done. The guy knows his job and does it well.

    This was pretty good. Strange has learned that his Sanctum Machina, or his mystic forge, has been broken into. This is where Strange makes his magical weapons and stores his mystic items. So someone stealing things from here is a pretty big deal. I really enjoyed the journey of Strange playing detective, if you will, trying to track down who it was. And I did not expect the villain to be who it was which was a nice surprise. After it was all said and done, this person was left in a tight spot. I This was pretty good.

I would be down to read a mini series of this character showing them deal with the consequences. But over all, an entertaining read with some cool cameos and some great art by Kev Walker.

    I admit to being a Mark Waid fan, and I stand firm on my belief that Irredeemable remains one of, the best Superman riffs (as in what if Superman was truly Charles Manson level evil). Yet, like Geoff Johns I have moments where I think one of Waid's best traits is his ability to take a company's IP and give it a new twist. Dr. Strange has usually struck me as a supporting character. Few writers seem able to make him interesting. Waid goes back and changes a core factor in Strange's origin.

Strange's abilities as a surgeon are restored and now we watch Strange balance his obligations as a surgeon and doctor against being this dimension's sorcerer supreme who is also carving out a new way of doing magic (see the previous series). The rating for this series is a little high. It could have a really nice long form read, but it was canceled after six issues (read as digital floppies). The supporting cast and Strange's world were being fleshed out, but the ending feels rushed and incomplete.

    I want to rate this higher, I really do. Mark Waid and Kev Walker spin a delightful yarn that looks like another fresh take and status quo on Doctor Strange after Waid already reinvented him in the previous series, but this one just ends too abruptly to be as good as it could have been. There are dangling plot threads, unresolved mysteries, and no closure to basically anything that went on here. I'd almost warn you away from reading this at all, because you'll get invested in what's going on onl I want to rate this higher, I really do.

It's a damn shame, and I hope Marvel come back to what's been left off here quicker than it took them to let Waid tie-up his Strange: The Doctor Is Out mini (which was something like ten years!)

    All over the place but a fun return to Dr. Strange's roots for Mark Waid. The strength of this run is Strange's return as a surgeon and I think this series would have benefited from leaning even more into those plotlines.

    The story is good. Nothing better than any other Doctor Strange run I've read, but also nothing worse. The art is some of the best, though. Love it. I'm definitely gonna keep collecting and see where it goes. Update: So apparently this was only 6 issues? I mean, it wasn't the greatest Doctor Strange run ever, but it didn't need to be cancelled. There were some great ideas in that last issue that could've changed the status quo for Madam Masque, had there been more issues to explore it. Kinda disa The story is good.

Lowering my score to 3 stars for a rushed, incomplete ending.
