Doctor Strange - Issue 4 - Comic Book Review

Doctor Strange - #4 - Marvel All New, All Different
Written By: Jason Aaron
Art By: Chris Bachalo

The Ancient One is in the midst of educating Stephen Strange on the philosophy of how magic impacts the user, similar to how a punch hurts both the striker and the one being hit. From there we jump to current time where Doctor Strange is meeting with all the sorcerers and mystics to discuss the revelations he’s discovered. Trouble is brewing and all are in search of what this magic killing power is and where it stems from. As Doctor Strange expands his search he discovers what he thought was true was not but much worse and it might be too late. 

Jason Aaron deciding to start with philosophical examinations of action/consequence was fantastic. Then to move back into the underground bar for the magicians (as seen in Issue 1) to discuss the peril magic users are in was great. I was most surprised to see Daimon Hellstrom make a cameo this issue. There’s lots of other great characters but his appearance peaked my interest immediately. 

The art work continues to shine. I’ve mentioned it before on a previous podcast but some of these panels could be framed or hung on a wall as art. I enjoy them that much. The look to this series is as unique as the good doctor. It’s such a great series and I can’t wait for the next issue.
