    Doc is one of my few "Buy them all for the character" series. The variety and experimentation on the character over Strange's history has been extremely interesting. From lee and Ditko to Thomas to Englehart, Stern, and so many more I've enjoyed reading his adventures. May 2021 bring us a Doc who doesn't go through another "Oh, no, my powers are lacking/gone" arc.

    Yes! Please! No more depowered Doctor Strange stories.

    I need to read Gerry Dugan's Savage Avengers and see his take. I heard he's a big fan of Strange / wants to write his book.

    I agree. Chariset's introduction is great. I wish she was still on the board, but it's been years.

    I think part of the issue for 20 years was that Doctor Strange didn't have his own book. So we had different writers, without a guiding portrayal, abusing the character on various teams and team ups to support other characters. Thankfully, with the movie, that era is long gone. Strange is always going to have a book, like the other movie characters.

    Still my favorite look of his, even if he never tucks in his bloody shirt.
    LOL! Maybe he has to dress quickly. ;p

    I remember when I thought 3 years was a long time ... now it seems like an eye blink. Of course, not having his own book makes a difference too.

    Lots to go but Im really excited. The original in and out type stories were fantastic. I wish wed see more of that with a modern take.

    Al Ewing on this book when hes done with Hulk please.
    I don't think we've seen Ewing write Doctor Strange, have we? His immersion into the character is amazing.

    I think I only have one Strange Tales, but it's a Roy Thomas and Gene Colan issue ... and it doesn't have a cover. I'd forgotten how much older those Strange Tales issues were.

    Under 3 yrs in a nearly 60 yr history? I'll stick with my "not very long" assessment.

    But yes, even in that short time it managed to become my favorite look to this day!

    Wow! Gorgeous! I love Kevin Nowlan's art. Are those black and white pieces original art or prints?

    I love the Clea cup. And I don't think I've seen that Dormammu figure either.

    Ahh, the Cho poster reminds me, he's done a new piece. I'll have to see if I can find it.

    The black and white pieces are 5 of the 6 plates in the Michael Golden Doctor Strange portfolio (the sixth is hanging in the stairwell going up to that attic comic room).

    I was hoping it was something like that. Adds "Golden Doctor Strange Portfolio" to my wish list.


    Here's the upcoming Michael Cho variant cover I mentioned.

    Nice. I really dig Cho' work.

    If it helps the search, the portfolio was released in 1983 by SQP (Sal Q Productions). There was a limited edition signed version too, but I've never seen that one in the wild.

    Thanks! I just found one on eBay reasonably priced, even.

    Cho's work has definitely grown on me. I didn't realize they had made a poster of his previous Dr. Strange.

    The portfolio search caught this gem I was also unaware of. FRANK MILLER doing a Doctor Strange print! Of course, it's is heavily inked by P. Craig Russell, but still, I was stunned to see it. It's part of a Marvel Team Up Portfolio -Set Two
