Essential Doctor Strange, Vol. 2 book

Essential Doctor Strange, Vol. 2 book. It very much feels like Roy Thomas said to Gene Colan 'Just draw whatever you want, the more psychedelic the better, and I'll chuck some words onto the pages once you're done'. We open with the talented team of Roy Thomas writing and Dan Adkins on the art in issues 169-170 for a retelling of the origin of Doctor Strange and a battle with Nightmare, his first foe from way back.

Essential Doctor Strange, Vol. In a strange switch, Adkins inks Tom Palmer for issue 171, in which our hero summons the Herald of Satannish to show him whence Clea, who aided him against Dormammu, has been banished.

This is where Doctor Strange starts getting some depth and we really start to see him pushed to his limits on a regular basis. By today's standards, these stories are tame, and the plots are a bit simplistic, but it is clear that there is some backstory, lore, and a broader universe that is rarely seen in the other Marvel comics of the day that are all being developed at this time (and in the next volume) that make it interesting and worth the read for those who are really interested in Doctor Strange.
Younger readers and those who didn't read comics from the 60s and 70s may find these collected stories slow going and underdeveloped, in terms of storylines. For them, I would strongly recommend avoiding the first volume, where the Doctor comes off as barely more than a cardboard character.

The Marvel Essential series puts monochrome versions of its comic-book series in trade paperbacks. These provide the "essential" artwork and the stories.

Doing any story about a real magician (i.e., one who wields actual magical forces) is difficult, as anything can happen in such stories, particularly in comic books. The Doctor Strange character is even more difficult to handle, as he often travels to other "dimensions," sometimes referred to as "planes" by some mystics.

From what Stan Lee wrote elsewhere, the character evolved in part from feedback by scholars who wondered the origins of some of the mystic phrases uttered by the magical characters. In time, even the writers even understood that "black magic" meant stuff full of negativity, rsther than just "magic."

Toward the end of the book, two sequences tended to elevate the character from being just another comicbook superhero. The first was a storyline "based on Robert E. Howard" concepts. Actually, Robert E. Howard was writing stories that were part of H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, and so the sequence was ultimately influenced by Lovecraft. Eventually, the story progresses tio the ultimate menace, an extradimensional entity known as Shuma-Gorath. How Strange ultimately deals with this menace elevates him to the rank of Sorcerer Supreme. By this time, Frank Brunner has become the principal artist, and the story raises its sights, metaphycically.

The final sequence in the book is the best, with Dr. Strange and his human archenemy, Baron Mordo, contending with Cagliostro, who turns out to be somebody else. The actual person, they learn, is an ultrapowerful magician from the future who has a mind-boggling ambition. Since what he might achieve could change the entire cosmos, both Mordo and Strange accompany the other magician as he executes his plan. The ultimate outcome is rather spiritual, and the highpoint of the book.

For those interested in the storylines, the best part of the book is these latter stories, which are likely to be the only ones a reader will remember.

well vol. 2s artwork is much improved over vol.1 .a bit weak in spots but overall quality work. the storylines in both volumes good but i like vol.2 with clea and victoria was a interesting i like it the cult of satannish storyline was way better than i expected.unfortunately back in the 70's i was 5 at the time so i got the chance read the early comics and caghts up on the strange history of strange. the alternate reality storyline kinda urk me with the mask strange ended up being mordo and being a lovecraft reader i love the omage to him in the second volume.the vishanti appearing echos the 90's comics with the war of the seven spheres story. overall better than vol 1 because i perfer a more detailed artwork and i like the storyline including the buddha one its comic you all and you forget it was a different time didnt have the pc police in play. the older stories have something the new one dont, character yes marvel took indecent liberities but they just did it without fear of offending it was not to offend it was to entertain. by the eternal vishati i dare say i like strange more now after reading vol.2 .x-men who and spider whatits give me stange and the might thor anyday but thats me
