  Just 1 star for a snazzy Shazana filler issue!

Jockey - The gargoyle mounts would be cool to ride around on!

Pet Sounds - On page 8, panel 4 I love the look on Shazanas Pets face!

'Nuff Said - "No! No! It can't be! You're saying that to torment me!"-Mordo

  Yeah, this one was a filler, alright. "Dr. Strange and the Jewels of Opar"

Sort of.

  Meh. Liked the interdimensional art, disliked the art on the women.

  This issue seemed like a mirror to the story they took a break from. They could have replaced the sisters with Dormammu and Clea and not wasted time with a filler issue.

  • That's my line "What unpardonable treason has been committed here??!" (Shazana Twain the Usurper) YOU tell ME!

  • This kind of artwork, so surrealist and psychedelic, is EXACTLY what I remember from Doctor Strange back when I was a kid. And I used to hate it! Now, I find it refreshingly original, creative and absolutely crazy! Drugs were strong in the sixties! I mean, page 3 is... well... literally out this world, isn't it!

  • What on Earth is Dormammu wearing?

  • That's some child-bearin' hips, Shazana's sister has on page 6! And these bright leggings do nothing to hide 'em! She'd be a candidate for What Not To Wear! And no wonder her throne got stolen, she can no longer fit in it! Who the hell hit my bitch-switch?

  • And Shazana!... Yikes! Do you think Green Goblin is doing her make-up? OK, now can someone please turn that switch off?

  • That beast must have thought Strange's amulet is a camera and started Voguing!

  • This smells like a filler story and Strange's learning about Shazana's background is a very verbose and contrived. It kinda breaks the momentum of this arc. Still, I'll give it 3 stars because Ditko was on fire in this one.

  One of the redeeming qualities of this story is the panel showing Clea crying. It is one of the most beautiful drawings that Ditko ever did.
