Shannon’s Thoughts:

In this graphic novel we see Doctor Strange has fully accepted his role in the world of magic and still looking for ways to heal himself physically.  He has become one of the world’s greatest magicians. He fights evil trying to take over the world while combating his own troubles.

This is my first delve into the world of Marvel’s Doctor Strange.  I became interested after seeing the Doctor Strange movie with Benedict Cumberbatch (which was awesome!). There are about 4 or 5 stories in this graphic novel.  The best one is the first story about Strange fighting a magic infused cult that takes one of his friends into its grasp.

The other stories are pretty dull.  Most of the other stories are also in black and white. To be honest because of the lack of color, and in some cases lack of dialog, made it hard to understand what was happening.  

I would say that this probably isn’t the best of Doctor Strange to start with.  I especially do not think it is the best if you have not seen the movie or have no knowledge of Doctor Strange.  I just feel this could have been much better stories than the ones in this graphic novel.

I like Graphic Novels. Haven't read one in a while.

I like them too. I also like Locke and Key by Joe Hill. It's a horror graphic novel. I also need to catch up on my Buffy comics. :)
