Today’s Super Comic — Doctor Strange #3 (2015)

Doctor Strange 3Writer Jason Aaron and artist Chris Bachalo continue to have fun with Doctor Strange. Looks like they’re getting the character in good shape for this year’s movie.

The visuals take the lead in the current series’ third issue, the latest available on Marvel Unlimited (not really “unlimited” then, is it?), as monsters chase Doctor Strange’s astral form across New York. It’s a great way to showcase Strange’s resourceful and knowledge while letting Bachalo cut loose with imaginative pages.01

And it continues to set up a larger plot involving some not-nice people wanting to kill all magic, so that should be fun, too.

This creative team is the first to get me interested in an ongoing Doctor Strange series. Well done.
