Welcome to another week’s look into the life of Stephen Strange. Although I could only track down the Doc in one title today, it was a doozy. I think we all have been waiting, with varying levels of excitement and dread, for the final chapter in this dimensional invasion story. Today, if we can agree on nothing else, we got it. Sort of.
New Avengers #6 –
Doctor’s orders. Unfortunately there is very little in this issue to get ourselves worked up about. We already knew that the Vishanti have booted Agamotto, though we never figured out why. We already knew that the Eye of Agamotto would be lost in one way or another, and with it much of the authority of the office of Sorcerer Supreme. And we already knew that this story would in no significant way change the face of Marvel Magic. I will, like always in situations like this, give my full review on the issue on Friday. Before then, however, I would like to say that this issue is the very first time in this arc that this even vaguely felt like a Doctor Voodoo story, which it apparently was supposed to be all along. Having said that, can you guess who dies? Of course, this being a magical story we have to keep in mind that magic is always a zero sum game…
If you saw the
Sorcerer Supreme Seeking Shaman in any other titles this week please post it in the comments and I will add it to the list.
