    That being said, while Doctor Strange: The Oath is entertaining, after reading issue #2 I haven't been "blown away." Somehow Id expected more from Vaughan (particularly when you look at his groundbreaking work on Runaways, Y: The Last Man and Ex Machina). Yet considering just how talented Vaughan is - and looking at the wonderfully retro style of Marcos Martins artwork - I'm willing to give them both the benefit of the doubt and hang on for the long haul. After all, what Vaughan has done is a task worthy of the Sorcerer Supreme himself: he's made the Doctor interesting again, proving in the end that Stephen Strange still has the magic touch.

    I really enjoyed this issue, and it's good to see a situation where not only is Dr. Strange's mystical prowess put to the test, but we get a little bit of CSI-style investigation added to the mix. Strange's background as a surgeon makes this story work well and even more interesting. The only problem I really had was that the pacing of the story at times didn't seem to make sense, but it didn't really detract all that much from my enjoying the book, and I definitely want to see where it's going to go from here.
