    Cho's work has definitely grown on me. I didn't realize they had made a poster of his previous Dr. Strange.
    It was a store promo poster not one available for retail. One of the local shops was closing and I knew the owner who knew I was a big Strange fan, so he offered me the poster.

    That looks to be from around the time Miller was supposed to work on the book, announced in a house ad, but which never materialized.



    I believe the only Strange story Miller actually drew was his guest appearance in Spider-Man Annual #14...

    You have sent me on several hunts this evening! LOL!

    But yes, I think you are right. That print has a 1982 date on it, and Miller was apparently replaced by Marshall Rogers (WOW!) whose first issue was Dr. Strange 48, with an August 1981 cover date. The annual came out in 1980, so perhaps it was a try-out of some sort?




    There's even a Brian Cronin article on this!

    Has anyone been reading Strange Academy? Is there significant panel time for Dr. Strange?

    Not particularly. But when he does show up, it’s to show him as the best of the best - which is nice and refreshing.

    I find Strange Academy a book you just have to try out and see if it’s for you. Im finding it a very fun read, and it’s nice to not be bogged down in continuity or darker tones.

    Yeah, Psylocke and Archangel are my favorite X-Men, so I loved seeing Doc show up for that arc!

    Joe Mad did indeed draw a great Strange! Then again, I'm biased toward that costume and think it always looks great no matter who's drawing it.

    This Stern/Rogers arc was incredible, amazing, fantastic, and invincible. What I LOVED most about it was the meta guesting of so many other stars from the Strange tales book: Thing and Torch, Brother Voodoo, and even Nick Fury. This was a nice way to tie Doc into the Marvel superhero/war book universe.

    Still makes me mad that the recent run got canned because of the pandemic.

    It seemed a lot more lighthearted starting out, but the last couple of issues, not so much.

    And it was also Mark Waid's last Marvel work, I believe.

    Have that issue. Enjoyed his team-ups with SM.

    Psylocke is one of my faves as well and I like Warren too. I think Doc Strange tried hard to help the underdogs like X-Men, Spidey etc (tried not to judge). I think that that 90's costume was definitely a more updated costume done right and I think it would do fine even now 25 years later.

    Hmmm. Okay, I'll check it out on Marvel Unlimited. I'm not a huge teen book fan, so it wasn't on my to read list. Thanks!

    That's what Cronin, I think, said, that in losing the Frank Miller art run, gave us the excellent Marshall Rogers run, which was a very fair trade IHO.
