    Yes - I am a Doctor Strange Fanatic. Yes - I have been following every issue of Strange Academy since the beginning and been having a BLAST! Yes - I have left detailed reviews for every issue so far. So why should I care about the first collection graphic novel?

    While hardly anyone here has noticed, I started the Strange Academy Fan Group on Facebook. When I first heard of this first Graphic Novel, I found a really good and fun You Tube video review done by a father and two young daughters. This graphic novel is the perfect way for anyone who has been lagging behind (or even not yet read any of the Strange Academy saga) to easily catch up with what is going on. A quick trip to your local comic books store, $14.00 plus tax, and getting issues #7 and #8 will get you completely caught up.

    Skottie Young, Humberto Ramos, Edger Delgado and their entire team are presenting a splendid, engrossing and downright FUN story with dramatic, unexpected twists. If you enjoy Doctor Strange, magic, transdimensional stories and interesting characters, your time and money will be well invested. Take my word for it. Or do not take my word for it. Check all this out for yourself!

    Yes - Issues #7 and #8 are already out and Issue #9 will be out March 10th. Issue #10 will be out May 5th but who is actually keeping track? Me! As one of the oldest Gen Xers (yes I just dated myself as being born in 1965) I have been following Doctor Strange and have been enjoying Strange Academy again as if I was a much younger man.
