Sav reviewed Doctor Strange #385 Feb 16, 2018
6.5

It was ok. I'm frustrated by it. Nothing was really explained. Why is the void so hard to beat? How can Loki jumpstart magic, rip souls apart, (etc.) yet he's doing this now? Why?

It just seemed like a lazy way to just randomly give magic back to everyone. I liked the premise. And if Loki had a more legitimate reason to trick Strange then I think I'd be more accepting of it all.

This isn't worth a 10, but it's definitely not worth a 1. So I want to offset the negativity being thrown at this issue.

It was good. Rocaforte is amazing as always. And the story was good. I hope they expound on his power source. But the set up for a whole cosmic storyline sounds great. I don't get how him being in high school makes this a spiderman knockoff, but then again I'm not a more

The artwork was not good. There was an obvious change from past issues. Kate looked horrible.

The story got away from Basil's death and immediately was about everyone else. 'We don't kill, but damned if we don't make everything about ourselves.' I'm still confused by Tim's feelings on anything. And purple girl (what's her bucket), good riddance. She made no sense. Bring back bluebird. more

the entire premise of the 'Gentle Man' and Everlasting Hoard is just dumb.
i hope we never see or hear of this idea again.
the whole thing felt like just a cheap excuse to get Bruce and Dianna alone together for years on end.

i have other gripes with this story, but my head hurts too much from reading this comic to even get into it right now.

i just hope for the readers of action comics #761 that it had better writing.

WSJim - Feb 9, 2018

it had it's own issues!!! One of my biggest issues with Batman #40 is the idea that Diana and Bruce were tricked and didn't know the time would be different...but come out at the end and don't wonder why Selina isn't 70! But there are more problems like why do they have to fight if the door opens on Earth's side! The demons can't make it through! How did the Gentle Man contact Diana????? I'm getting angry again!

Last issue was pretty good. The concept had some traction. And I can't say that the two of them couldn't have remained chaste. BUT you can't spend 37 years together with someone and not develop a bond that surpasses almost all other bonds. It's literally impossible. SO this better not be brushed off. You can't ignore something like this. It needs to affect all future stories that include the both more

I suppose this should be a 10 just because it was an UNDO button for last issue which was steaming garbage. this issue basically reverses everything from last issue. either someone really told Tom King to wipe this crap under the rug, or else he planned this all along - that he'd just waste two issues doing nothing but stirring up the pot for no reason. either way he seems like an asshat to me more

I just don't get it. They're suppose to have great training and experience, and yet every fight they approach head on. No tactical strategizing. Nothing written to expound on the danger or their talents. No, we have 15 pages and we need as much melodramatic bullshit as we can fit in them. This series is officially a lifetime original.
