Who do you call when things are coming out of your dreams and trying to kill you? Or when your daughter is cursing in Latin and walking like a spider? Or when your dog keeps screaming at you to strangle your neighbors? Doctor Strange, of course. He's the only person standing between us and the forces of darkness, but has he been paying his tab? Every act of magic has a cost and Jason Aaron (THOR, ORIGINAL SIN) and Chris Bachalo (UNCANNY X-MEN) are going to put Stephen Strange through hell to even the scales.

I'm a fan of Aaron and Bachalo's work generally, but I found this disappointing for both. Probably the weakest thing I've read from Aaron, and Bachalo's artwork was muddy and muddled (someone please stop letting him colour his own artwork).

This was my first time reading about Dr. Strange in his own comic. I have enjoyed his interactions with the Avengers and the X-men. It was fun to learn more about him. I also like the librarian in the story. Their interactions about his books made me laugh.

I know almost diddly about Dr. Strange, but this was a fun introduction. Here's what I've learned:

*He has to eat really weird food because magic has ruined his digestion. Who knew?
*He has the coolest/most dangerous magic house.
*He will make out with incorporeal snake-women if given the chance.
*While spells are cool - he can also go out a-chopping with a huge axe.

Fun stuff, interesting setup, kind of a "death of magic" storyline in the making. I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes.
