    All in all, Doctor Strange: Season One finally realizes the potential of this graphic novel series. It's true to the classic origin while offering something legitimately new and engaging to the mix, not to mention absolutely stunning to look at. Read Full Review

    "Doctor Strange: Season One" is fun and smart all at the same time. It delivers thrills, laughs and spectacular visuals. This is the ultimate place to get back into Doctor Strange if you've been away for too long. As a first taste, you'll be spoiled for quality and want more of this version of the character and the creative team. As both a story and a "Season One" book, this is a resounding success on all fronts. Let's greenlight the Season Two for everyone involved here. Read Full Review

    If you've never been interested in Doctor Strange, this book seems like as good a place as any to get interested. The Season One initiative has been largely disappointing across the board if only because their hasn't been a lot that felt new in any way, shape or form. Doctor Strange Season One, however, changes that for the most part; it's an old story, sure, but it's told in such a way where everything legitimately feels fresh and exciting. If this book is any indication that we'll be seeing a Strange fill sometime soon, and it would seem that it might, this is certainly a great way to get Strange into the conscious mind of an unsuspecting public.
