"The Mystic Hands of Doctor Strange" #1 also came out this last week. It's an 48-pager in black and white, featuring stories of the good doctor back before his recent demotion.

Just two pages from the lead story, "The Cure", by Kieron Gillen and Frazer Irving.



People have been behaving in odd ways, and Doctor Strange has traced the influence to an insane asylum. Naturally, to investigate more closely without tipping off the person or persons responsible, Stephen decides to have himself committed.




Those of you who are superior (to me) Doctor Strange fans will be able to pin down when this story is taking place from that information.

I'm not going to spoil the rest of the story this time, and there's three others. Check it out!

I must say, this is a lot more all-ages than the title would lead me to believe...

That said, I'm liking the looks of this. A lot more meaty occult and less flashy mucking about with superheroes.

I was really looking forward to this one. Shame my LCS hates me.

This looks very interesting, I'm really hoping that I missed it at my LCS because I was tired, not because they didn't carry it.

And yet the man can't play poker to save his life.

Of course, one may choose to assume (as I do) that Stephens lousy poker skills are part of a massive, extended bluff on his part, and one of these days at the annual card game he's gonna take everyone to the cleaners.

As Marvel Adventures showed, Stephen is playing a massive, long-running confidence game.

So, yeah.

Well, nice to see they're actually doing stories that work in b & w, rather than the previous things I've seen which just looked like they left out the color.

This was a surprisingly fun book, considering I'm not much of a fan. They really took their time with it.

This sounds great but yet again does seem to sort of show a complete lack of confidence in their "Doctor Strange isn't the Sorceror Supreme" storyline.

It's like DC publishing all these Bruce Wayne as Batman stories in the middle of trying to make us care that Bruce is dead/out of the picture forever and Dick has taken over.

It just dilutes the concept IMHO.

Quoted for truth. I am in total agreement with this comment - and I like Stephen Strange. It's like they're trying to have their cake and eat it too.

Well, this is an industry that undermined Sekowsky's martial artist Wonder Woman character by reprinting old stories about "her" youth as a high-magic Wonder Girl--in his book during his run! There's a recurring bias toward conservatism &/or reversion to old forms. When it's a flashback while the new version is ongoing, this is partly justifiable as a way of seeing which sells better. What's really annoying is when they refuse to let past forward development stand.

I may be wrong, but the scenario he describes sounds a lot like a Spider-Man story featuring Dr Strange. Written by JMS, I think.

The events he's describing happened in Dr. Strange (first series) #13. Ironically, the storyline that immediately followed dealt with Strange losing his grip on reality as a result and getting dragged down to Hell (along with Clea and James Mandarin) by Satan.

The issues in question are:

Specific mention is made to one of my all-time favorite storylines wherein the Earth is destroyed and everyone, save Strange, is an exact replica - recreated by Eternity (Doctor Strange; Master of the Mystic Arts # 10 - 13)
The destruction and replication take place specifically in # 12 - 13.
