Only Doctor Strange can protect our world from the darkness beyond - now, witness the full toll that constant struggle takes on Earth's Sorcerer Supreme! Every spell cast comes at a cost, but what happens when Strange falls behind on his tab? Find out as the good doctor wakes up somewhere very odd, nearly naked - with no spell books, no weapons and no memory of how he got there ... or why all the monsters are chasing him! And as a new visitor to Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum learns one wrong door can lead to oblivion, a magic circle of Strange's friends and allies are about to face their greatest threat. Dark forces are destroying everything mystical in the multiverse, and their sights are set on this dimension. Magic's days are numbered, and Doctor Strange is not ready!

Spectacular art! A wisecracking Doctor Strange, however, just seems wrong.

Something is going very wrong as strange begins to see the signs of his magic losing its potency. A solid and fun to read start to the new doctor strange.

Jason Aaron delivers again. This is fun and trippy!

Nice modern reboot of a B-side Marvel character. Interestingly, Dr. Strange is cast as a bit of a playboy.

The writing is top notch in this first collected volume of the current solo series for the wizard of the Marvel universe. Aaron has the right take on the character and the bizarre world he faces to protect this world. While I usually have many, many problems with Bachalo's artistic style- and those problems are here nonetheless- it's lessened somewhat by the sheer weirdness of the things Strange has to deal with on a daily basis, and so Bachalo's art doesn't hamper the story as it would with other writers.

I've never really met Doctor Strange before. I've heard the name, know about the movie coming out, but that's about it. This was really weird but also really wonderful. I also love the inclusion of a librarian who is there to organize his library, which is far more unwieldy than most.

So, it was fun, and I'm keen to read more

Contrary to other reviewers, I think this is a refreshingly fun take on Doctor Strange full of personality and imagination. Top work across the board, from the engaging script to the surreal art. A wonderful way to whet your appetite until the movie arrives in November 2016.

How many perfectly good trees were wasted to publish this?

This take on Dr. Strange is just plain awful. Save your time and pass on this one.
