Reviews Doctor Strange, Vol. 5
- Read these individually as they were coming out.
- Locked up in Manhattan during Secret Empire Doc Strange teams up with an improbable bunch (Spider-Woman? Wilson Fisk?? Ben Urich???) to defeat Mordo, appointed warden of the island by Hydra. On this feeble premise Hopeless weaves a loose AD&D thread resolved with a mere sleight of hand. Disappointing.
- [Read as single issues]Secret Empire comes to town, and Doctor Strange finds himself trapped in the Darkforce Dimension-infested New York. But don't worry, he has help in the form of Spider-Woman, the Kingpin, and...Ben Urich? Okay, maybe this isn't going to go quite as well.This volume is kind of a placeholder for the series between larger creative teams.

- This is a bit of a stopgap volume but still really enjoyable. Dennis Hopeless and John Barber do a good job of continuing the tone of the modern Doctor Strange from Jason Aaron's excellent run with some light stories. There's also the bonus of a fun appearance from Spider-Woman, most recently written by Hopeless.
- Even with the help from a multitude of different superheroes (Captain America to Daredevil, Spider-Woman to Iron Fist), the Doctor Strange series has become a complete disappointment. Goodbye, Stephen.
- Překvapivě nešlo vůbec o takovou ztrátu času, jak jsem čekala. Kresba stále skvělá a hlavně poslední dvě čísla (ta co neměla už nic společeného se Secret Empire) byla hodně dobrá.
