  Dormammu may be learning he picked the wrong pawn to mess with Dr Strange. Mordo needs more and more while parlaying into less effective methods. Nice mystical battle.

  This was just a bunch of weird spell fighting...wasn't that good. I guess Dormammu is now gonna fight Strange one one one..? Guess we'll see next ish.

  3 stars for Dormammu browbeating Mordo!

'Nuff Said - "I am the explosive! You are the fuse!"-Dormammu

  Wait, I thought Dormmamu was forbidden to attack, which was why Baron DoucheHead was doing it for him? Inconsistent issue is inconsistent. 3 stars.

  All the major women so far that Ditko draws have the exact same face - Betty Brant, Liz Allen and Clea.

  All-out, mystical, magical action as you like it! Say no more, fella... this one has it all! Doc Strange confronts Baron Mordo face to face. And all under cover of Sturdy Steve's enchanted pencil and brush. Face it, true believers, it don't get any better than this! (Except maybe next ish. You know how we bullpen types like to always keep you guessing!)

  1. On this one the art was less spectacular but the battle was really good.

  Great battle between Mordo and Strange, who, again, just stand in a room and wave their hands at each other. Yet, somehow... It works!

This sort of scene will practically REQUIRE the film version to be seen in 3D. I really can't wait to see how they handle the character for the film.

  4 stars - Totally loving this storyline right now! This issue turned out like a Final Fantasy boss battle. Just when you're about to beat the lieutenant, the big boss rolls in to take charge. Can't wait to see how Dr. Strange wins this!

  What a fall from grace, Mordo! I can practically see Strange forming the shape of an "L" and putting it to his forehead as he mutters the mystic incantation "Loser!"

  Dormammu is about to break his pledge. You just can't trust an ambitious villain nowadays.

  Stalemate the issue. I'm still waiting for Clea to save the day.

  Totally. Only the hairdon'ts tell them apart!

  • That's my line – "You have been out-fought from the beginning!" (Dread(ed) Dormammu)

  • I find it odd that the Ancient One had enough power to repel Strange's strongest attempts at probing his mind last issue, but cannot give him any assistance in this one.

  • Mordo's constant need for more power is now getting old. At last, Dormammu will take over!

  • I think Dormammu has twisted the terms of his oath in using Mordo against Strange. And he stretches it past the limit by abducting Earthlings, isn't he? Should there be consequences to that transgression?

  • Well the fighting scenes were impressive to watch, but a bit repetitive this time. 3 stars.

  It's my guess that that's how Strange wins—by making Dormammu break his word.

  About those shades of the Seraphim...are the rhinestone shades or cheap sunglasses?
