Solid idea for a story.

Yes, it's just another villain-attacks-hero tale but it's an interesting one. Strange's body is stolen.

After that, it's a standard chase and battle.

8/10

  Pg8/P2 is awesome... it looks like Mordo is challenging Dr. Strange to a dance-off.

  Better than the last one. Let's keep up the trend.

  Sigh, Baron Mordo apparently hates Strange so little that he doesn't even bother to remember his name ... his name isn't Doom. Still, really hasn't enjoyed the previous Mordo stories but this one was actually good. I think the fact that his plan actuality made sense and almost worked is part of it.

Then of course he became an idiot at the end (my plan requires I not become Astral until Strange is dead. Oh no, I'm in danger, I'll become Astral!). Was entirely predictable.

  • That’s my line – “Begone, denizens of the dark! Let the clean light of my enchanted amulet bathe over you!” (Doctor Strange)

  • Best Doctor Strange story so far!. 4 stars.

  Strange definitely needs some different villains to face, but this was an entertaining back and forth with Mordo

  1. No, Stan! Please don't try to bring science into this! You were doing so well! Photographing lingering light rays, indeed!
2. I never noticed he wore different clothes in his astral (I refuse to say "ectoplasmic") form. Neat.
3. Yes, Strange, you are indeed a fool for not eliminating a nearly undefeatable foe while you have him helpless. Isn't there a gem you can put him in or something? I mean, isn't he a threat to the world just walking around? You keep saying so, but the only ones he ever seems to menace are you and the Ancient One.

One of the better Strange stories so far. Four stars.

  A good deal of huffing and puffing and dashing about by both main characters (Strange and Mordo)... but, in the end, nothing ever actually *happens*, really. Disappointingly low calorie story; three stars, ultimately, solely for Ditko's mastery of all things magical.

  I really enjoyed this story. I mean the bar was set pretty low after that horrendous Torch story...but the panel where Strange fights Mordo's minions just looks incredible.
