    Birng on the Savage Axe of Ares next month!Quote 0#2RotSman2010-03-16 13:18I've said it before, but that Mephisto summoning is the best he's ever looked, and one of the finest pieces of graphic art I've seen in a comic in years. I'll buy this just for that image...if I can find it!Quote Refresh comments list Read Full Review

    I think it's no coincidence that every story in this book hearkens back to the classic Silver Age years of Doctor Strange. The character had no trouble supporting his own ongoing series back then, and I credit that largely to the energy and imagination that those comics and these stories share. Compared to the underwhelming Strange mini-series these past months, The Mystic Hands of Doctor Strange serves as a true testament to the character's lasting appeal. Read Full Review

    It's odd, really. Gillen, Milligan, McKeever, and Carey are all capable of writing mystical-themed stories with great success; "Phonogram," "Hellblazer," "Metropol," and "Lucifer" all being prime examples. So why did none of these stories work? Your guess is as good as mine. I have come to one conclusion this year, though; reading "Doctor Strange" comics is always going to spell disappointment sooner or later. Read Full Review
