    Btw, is Strange Academy worth checking out?
    I’m enjoying it. It’s fun and reasonably light hearted, but I find it’s a big breath of fresh air to my usual pull list which seems to be pretty dark.
    There’s not too much of Stephen, though, so I wouldn’t get it if you wanted to see lots of him.

    Doctor Strange & Doctor Doom: Triumph and Torment. Not only a great Doctor Strange tale, but one of my favorite takes on Doctor Doom. Plus, some lovely early Mike Mignola arty.

    I've added it to my list! Thanks for the good recommendation!
    I've forgotten to mention that I've read Dr. Strange 4-issue mini from 1999 as well...it was a bit weird, but I liked it.

    I absolutely loved Nightmare (1994) mini, now that's a stellar story.

    Wasn't aware of that Nightmare mini-series. By Anne Nocenti and Joe Bennett! Looks very interesting. Will have to check it out.

    I have to second the TRIUMPH AND TORMENT recommendation. It's great!

    A bit trippy, but gorgeous, is INTO SHAMBALA, another OGN.


    Also, here's a list of Greatest Doctor Strange stories that Cronin compiled a few years ago, which I think CBR members voted on.

    ...I'm not completely against it but it feels random.

    I wonder if Clea will ever get her memories back.

    I honestly wasn’t too surprised to be honest it’s a jaw dropper but I feel like we kind of got hints with the cover of the next issue who spoilers:
    I thought honestly was some elseworld daughter for Strange/Carol given the whole premise of Ove and the different costume it made sense to me. Kelly Thompson seemed to enjoy writing Dr. Strange in her freaky Friday story. Whatever this ends up being though it’ll obviously not be long term. Carol’s relationships usually aren’t outside Rhodey surprisingly but that might be due to the nature of her title usually not having as much longevity that relationship even lasted long. On a business standpoint I think it was a smart move Dr. Strange is on a lot of minds lately given Multiverse of Madness is around the corner. I’m still hoping somethings done with Night Nurse I loved the Oath story and I’m curious to see Christine Palmer take on that role
    end of spoilers

    I’m honestly glad that Kelly Thompson remembered the fact Stephen is back to being a surgeon to. So im
    assuming she did some reading up on him. Or payed attention to his most recent solo series.

    That list is really solid. I would probably add the strange tales vol. 2 stories especially the last few issues that culminated in him teaming up with Kaluu against Shuma Gorath.

    Nice to see someone who also liked "Into Shambala". I remember also kind of liking "The Way to Dusty Death" OGN where he teamed up with Spider-Man.

    It's a pity SA is not getting much traction here. It really is a consistently enjoyable read month after month. Issue 9 was a perfect blend and balance of humour and darkness with complex and distinctive characterisations.

    I was pleasantly surprised to find out who Dessa's father was.

    I mean, I guess Carol and Rhodey kind of broke up at the end of last arc, so she having a new date makes sense?
    But Strange is a Strange choice, even though Stephen's probably a really attractive man.

    My only issue with Strange Academy is some of the characterization feels like it would be off given the background of the students. Mainly the Asgardian twins turned to American jocks. Other then that in my opinion it’s a really good book and I’m hoping that even if doesn’t last it’s still something that’s kept in-universe. I could definitely see a show being adapted off the premise of the book. It’s basically Harry Potter and that show that spinned off the CW from the Originals

    The Oath is really good too

    Definitely second this, I loved the premise it was something new and refreshing. I’m hoping when Dr. strange eventually gets a title again we’ll still get the surgeon side of things

    My take on Iric and Alvi...and all the students actually, regardless of their origins, is that....teenagers will be teenagers. Sure, some personalities would be intrinsically shaped by their environment, like Dessy but...teens will Teen.

    And speaking of Dessy...and Zoe...

    STRANGE ACADEMY started out fun for me, but the sheer amount of angst & trauma each new student backstory brings to the table has become tiresome.

    And did we REALLY need two students killed off (however temporarily) in less than a year?
