'Golden Age' is one of my favorite arcs from Bendis' and Maleev's run on Daredevil. It's just a great combination of writing from Bendis and art from Maleev. It's also largely a stand-alone story so you just need to be familiar with the basic concept of Daredevil being outed as Matt Murdock and later declaring himself the 'Kingpin' of Hell's Kitchen.

Doctor Strange 386 came out today.

In my post on the Sentry/Loki story, I announced in jest that

"The next story line Doctor Strange: The Man with No Friends Whatsoever starts this week."

And now look at us )

I loved Jae Lee and Paul Jenkins' Sentry miniseries. Jeff Parker's Age of the Sentry is a piece of joy. Bendis was able to get some really good stuff involving the Sentry in his Avengers run (notably in the Wedding special, and Bob and Norman's heart to heart before getting Five Guys). That said, there has been some rot. The Jenkins/Romita Jr sequel is confusing rubbish and Bendis's use of Sentry in Siege is pretty dreadful.
However, once I saw that he was appearing in Doctor Strange (382-385) I was all up ons.

This story is written by Donny Cates with art by Gabriel Hernandez Walta, who drew Tom King's Vision

The general story is that Strange has lost Sorcerer Supreme-ship to Loki. He is miffed and vows to get his title, his cloak and his house back. He challenges Loki, and in the contest, Loki accidentally kill's Strange's dog (Bats). At this point, Strange decides he needs more firepower, and calls on an old friend. Up a mountain.
Stephen Strange is climbing a mountain. Why is he climbing a mountain? )

A repost about Stephen Strange and Morganna Blessing and Clea.

"Morgana Blessing was the sort of woman that Doc would have had a relationship with, in his previous career as a high-priced surgeon. She was the Earthly love, in contrast with the ethereal, extradimensional Clea. All the regular readers loved Clea, of course, but the relationship she and Doc had was not exactly an enlightened one. If Clea had just been Doc's lover that would have been okay, but she'd also become his student, his disciple. It was a case of 'I love you, Clea.' 'And I love you, Master.' And not in a sweet, innocent, I Dream of Jeanie way, either. Not a healthy relationship, not healthy at all." - Roger Stern

"One of the things we talked about last year when we were first announcing this book was that this was on my dream list of stories I always wanted to do. I’ve done smaller versions of them, but I always wanted to do one with the biggest, baddest villain who’s dug the biggest hole of anyone in the world. Let’s see them dig out. That’s what I wanted to write." - Brian Michael Bendis
