Issue Review

While this story is fine in itself, what this series needs now is a break from Baron Mordo, who pops up a lot as the villain.

This is one of those basic villain-attacks-hero tales that barely constitutes an actual story.

However, despite the weaker aspects, thereís a few cool ideas here. And itís a fun read.

6/10

  Just 1 star for yet another Baron Boredo story.

Featherweight - If Dr. Strange is weightless; wouldn't his books and table behind them be weightless also?

Objectivism - The only thing that keeps this story entertaining is Ditko's artwork!!!

  Baron Mordo doesn't get better until much later...

  Dr. Strange is still as enjoyable as ever.

  i actually think the initial plan of Mordo wasn't that bad...only badly executed...because he thought he won after Dr. Strange entered his House/Villa

  Definitely sick of Mordo, even after that break for Nightmare. However, it really feels like Strange has no actual power and just uses artifacts (ring, amulet, etc.) all the time, whereas I don't recall seeing Mordo or The Ancient One using an artifact yet. 3 stars for comic, one stolen by Mordo WITHOUT him having to use an artifact to do so.

  Definitely time to see Strange start fighting some different villains.

  -All these stories must take place at 4:20, because Ditko's Strange always looks sooo high.

  I want a skylight like Strange has on his house! So cool! Also, average story. Strange's escape makes sense, as far as logic and magic agree. As everyone says, it would be time for new villains.

  As said above, it seems Strange is much less powerful than Mordo, because he requires gadgets to do anything. Still, possibly because there's no pseudoscientific element here, these stories seem to hang together better than most others so far.

  Ready to kick Mordo to the curb. Currently Modro is to Dr.Starnge as Loki is to Thor. Good villain but overused.

  In total agreement with the rest of the chorus: Mordo is a dull, leaden weight on what is otherwise -- thanks to Steve Ditko's increasingly inspired penciling and inking -- an energetic and enjoyable little feature. It's like how the main villain in Every. Freaking. Season. Of. HEROES. Was the relentlessly tiresome Sylar.

Two stars, all for Ditko.

  This story could be understood just by looking at Ditko's artwork. He is great when it comes to transitions and describing scenes with no words.
