    I know jack about Doctor Strange, so I can't comment on the controversy that Straczynski is "ruining" his origin. What I read was witty, fun and engaging, I understood the characters and their motivations and want to read more. Peterson and Ponsor also turn in the best work of their respective careers, my mouth dropped at how gorgeous it was. Worthy of your three and a half bucks for the art alone, the great story is just a bonus. Read Full Review

    The general impression here is one of pointlessness. The additions and changes dont bring any new insight to the character, and Im hard pressed to see why this should replace previous versions of the characters origins. Its not bad by any means, and future issues might do a better job of justifying the series existence, but this first issue fails to convince me that you need a miniseries to tell Stranges backstory, when one back issue (or a page from the online or print versions of the Marvel Encyclopaedia) will do the job just as well.
