  Just 2 stars for the return of Baron Bordo!

El Diario - The Spanish newspapers headline wants to know who turned the milk green!!!

Inside The Lines - The printer forgot to color the glowing orb! (p8,p4)

'Nuff Said - "Master--punish me as you will,"-Naughty Wong

  I had to go back a few issues to remind myself of what was going on in the story. I thought this was a good continuation and escalation of things. In a few pages, it did a good job of showing the continued spread of unchecked magic around the globe.

And staying away from the "Appearances" section, I was pleasantly surprised at the reveal of Mordo at the end.

One thing I wondered... When did Strange's speech become so formal? He used to just be a regular Joe like the rest of us, but now the guy practically speaks like Thor... Or at least early-80s Storm.

  It's always a treat when reading an issue to come across a particularly good out-of-context quote, and think "I'll bet a Locust will use that one," only to have it confirmed!

  What? They left the mystic forelock out of the summary? I'm shocked. You'd almost think they realised how stupid that was.

  At the time that this comment is being written, this stretch of Dr. Strange starts at #666 in the Order!

  ....And appropriate that the story title is 'The Evil that Men Do"

  So....the Red Baron has returned. Never has a Baron plagued the protagonist so much since Snoopy.

But after the promising start to this arc, I'm going to withhold judgment for a few issues and see how this plays out.

  Oh, and one comment about the Order. I vote that #666 might've been more appropriate for an X-Men story; since, you know, 666 is the number of the Beast.

I think Henry McCoy might've appreciated that.

Never mind.

  but now it is shifted to 670 due to some additions in the early order...damn you May Dusa!

  hmmm I wonder if Mordo knows that Strange is now way more powerful than before because he has all the knowledge and mystic skills of the Ancient One...
He might be a little overconfident...we'll see how this plays out...onto the next Issue fellow Marvelites
