    Maybe the long classic Dr. Strange "Eternity Saga" not aged well and sometimes "Smiling" Stan's dialogues can be really boring and hard to read for old and young Marvel readers, but this long storyline is a real epic one. Strange fights alone against Baron Mordo, Dormammu, an evil descendant of Rasputin, evil spirits, wizards, gun/bomb armed killers and hordes of other foes blinded, bonded, hurt, always pushing himself to the limit in one of the longest, full of action and unexpected twists, comi Maybe the long classic Dr. Strange "Eternity Saga" not aged well and sometimes "Smiling" Stan's dialogues can be really boring and hard to read for old and young Marvel readers, but this long storyline is a real epic one. Strange fights alone against Baron Mordo, Dormammu, an evil descendant of Rasputin, evil spirits, wizards, gun/bomb armed killers and hordes of other foes blinded, bonded, hurt, always pushing himself to the limit in one of the longest, full of action and unexpected twists, comics story-arcs. And when at the end Doc wins his final prize, knowing that the name of the woman that defied Dormammu and loves him is Clea, the reader can just enjoy the happy end. And Steve Ditko artworks are just pop culture masterworks. 'nuff said!

Mordo is spoonfed Dormammu's powers (since the demon can't personally attack Earth and Strange because of an earlier oath), making him a formidable foe for the mighty magician. Unfortunately the serial nature of the story means that Strange is more often than less distracted by side quests (he spends an issue fighting the minor villain Mister Rasputin, for example, which has nothing to do with anything really, but fills a couple of pages) and not all the foreign dimensions Strange encounters during his multi-dimensional battles with Mordo and later Dormammu himself (after the demon has dispatched of Mordo) are terribly interesting, despite Steve Ditko's usual great artwork. A major plot point is a anthropomorphic concept called Eternity, which Strange hopes to make an ally and Dormammu is really afraid of, but the concept is vague, not really fleshed out, and again, not terribly exciting. Still, it has couple of nice fights between Strange and his various foes, the artwork, as mentioned before, is excellent, but it could use some more character development and a couple of distracting chapters less.

    Closer to 3.5 stars than 4, but this was a surprisingly good series of Doctor Strange stories collected from the 'Strange Tales' title issues 130–146. The story deals with a long-time battle between Doctor Strange and The Dread Dormammu. At this stage Dormammu is far stronger than Strange, but is hampered in his attempt to gain revenge against Strange for a past event because he has vowed never to enter Earth's dimension. This means he must work through Earthly pawns and using stratagems to lure Closer to 3.5 stars than 4, but this was a surprisingly good series of Doctor Strange stories collected from the 'Strange Tales' title issues 130–146.

This means he must work through Earthly pawns and using stratagems to lure Strange into other dimensions. Add to this the artwork of Steve Ditko, who to my mind created the artwork I will always associate with Doctor Strange, and is also very good at creating a suitably dark look for Strange as he moves through the world in disguise trying to hide from the pawns of Dormammu who are hunting him. There's a lot to like here, especially if you have a soft spot for the Sorcerer Supreme.

A história deixa a desejar. Talvez na época esse tipo de narrativa fosse o que mais agradasse os leitores de quadrinhos, mas em minha opinião teve um péssimo envelhecimento. Os diálogos de Stan Lee são bem repetitivos e narrativos, já que os personagens parecem dizer todo tipo de ação que irão realizar. Isso entra em direto conflito com a arte do quadrinho, como se Steve Ditko não fosse capaz de reproduzir o que foi imaginado pelo escritor. Os conflitos do quadrinho são resolvidos de forma bem repetitiva, tornando este cansativo, e nos momentos que mais parece que o personagem irá utilizar da sabedoria e das artes místicas que cita tanto, temos os estes se batendo na mão, em situações que beiram o absurdo! Temos quadros bem fantasiosos, o que merece algum destaque, devido a inventividade que o famoso desenhista conseguiu realizar, além do design dos personagens, que apesar de razoavelmente ridículos, hoje ainda são levados como base até mesmo para a criação dos filmes de super heróis aclamados pela crítica. Outro ponto positivo foi a inserção de certos personagens que desenvolvem o universo marvel em geral, como a entidade Eternidade, que hoje compõe uma das posições principais no quadro cósmico do universo Marvel. Porém, mesmo com esses pontos positivos, parece que a história não busca uma fórmula narrativa, onde a penúltima edição não tem nada a ver com o que foi narrado anteriormente, e com uma última edição realmente muito superior as outras, porém corrida. Parece que tentaram encerrar as pressas uma narrativa que perdeu muito tempo enrolando o leitor. Apesar de gostar do personagem, foi uma leitura bem entediante.

    A pesar de que como he dicho antes los diálogos en estos comics de casi 50 años son un poco intensos, si uno ve más allá de ese tema, esta historia es muy entretenida, creativa e impactante. El dibujo de Ditko es por demás digno de ver. Si uno se sienta a leer con la actitud correcta (no juzgar a este comic con la misma vara que un comic actual), puede llevarse una linda sorpresa y de hecho disfrutar estas obras.

    Εξαιρετικη ιστορία με καταπληκτικά σχέδια που παραπέμπουν σε ψυχεδελικές καταστάσεις. Θα μπορούσε να ήταν συντομότερο και να έλειπαν κάποια από τα τελευταία κεφάλαια. Παρόλα αυτα πρόκειται για ένα σπουδαίο graphic novel που δείχνει το μεγαλείο του Stan Lee και του Steve Ditko.

    At last a volume in the series credited solely to the men who, along with Jack Kirby, fuelled the Marvel juggernaut. This is the real comics manna from heaven, a taste of exactly what they brought to Marvel. Way back when it was Stan Lee’s inventive use of language that got me. By any conventional means you’ll find in ‘learn to write’ manuals it’s absolutely appalling, trowelling on the adjectives and seemingly determined to cause a world shortage of exclamation marks and ellipses.

This is the real comics manna from heaven, a taste of exactly what they brought to Marvel. Way back when it was Stan Lee’s inventive use of language that got me. By any conventional means you’ll find in ‘learn to write’ manuals it’s absolutely appalling, trowelling on the adjectives and seemingly determined to cause a world shortage of exclamation marks and ellipses. There’s not a single standard full stop in the whole story, even when Roy Thomas takes over writing duties. But the manic energy and hucksterism of Lee shines through, contrasting with Ditko’s often cold and bizarre tableaus. It’s well documented that Lee’s not shy of grabbing all available credit and Ditko’s simply not interested in any, but they’re clearly a perfect storytelling combination. Lee’s language hugely enriched my vocabulary in my first decade and is pretty much a one man riposte to the blanket thought of comics being bad for you. I still adore his shameless showman act today – it gives that early output a distinctive brand, almost a personality of its own. And years late it’s still wonderful to wallow in Lee’s viciously voracious vocabulary, even if the dramatic exclamations become wearing. These days I love these stories equally for Ditko’s art. It’s inventive, strange and often takes angles as odd as those from the contemporary TV shows The Avengers and Batman. The image of Dormammu is beautifully realised, as are the striking images of astral travel and other planes. Even in modern day art, when we’re used to all sorts of stylised art, it remains striking. What’s remarkable is how well Dito and Lee construct a reasonably coherent narrative over 16 ten page episodes. This is an era where the concept of a graphic novel as we know it was decades off, even Chris Claremont’s much acclaimed X-Men run which turned comics into ongoing storylines (essentially aiming at being soaps for boys) wasn’t foreseeable. Sure, there’s plenty of repetition and dead ends present, all sorts of plot holes, inconsistencies and wonderfully inappropriately timed gloats from villains, showing the RKO serial roots of it all. But there’s always enough energy and chutzpah to keep things moving. Step right up folks, and keep moving, the magician’s got another trick up his sleeve to distract you…

I just have to say up front I love Steve Ditko's art and rereading this story from the annal of Strange Tales makes me fall in love with his art all over again. The way he draws the cap of Dr Strange it becomes alive. Also his creation of Eternity is cosmic . What I like is the fruity of his illustrations and the way he paves the way for psychedelia that was to surface in popular in culture in a year or two. The story covers the second major encounter Dormammu and introduces Eternity. Clea is also named as the woman who helped Dr Strange in hi first encounter with Dormammu. There are still aspects of the story telling that I found annoying. Clea does have agency in one story where she assists Dr Strange but for the rest she is a either a helpless bystander or a captive of Dormammu. I also grow tires of the overuse (to put it mildly) of punctuation marks The least you can expect is ... and every other sentence ends in and exclamation mark! Also, the writers have the characters explaining what the reader can see occurring in the panels as if we do not have the wit to work it out for ourselves. That said what I can remember as a 12-13 year reading those stores for the first time I was not troubled by either of these aspects of the story telling. Although I have only given it Three Stars I recommend picking up a copy as part of your preparation for the Dr Strange movie.

    Although it seems a bit long winded, each part is from an anthology comic (Strange Tales) so only ten pages to each issue of Doctor Strange. Art has that psychedelic stride going for it as we delve into the nether-worlds and other dimensions, which is good, but the basis of the story for most of the time is the dread Dormammo stuck in his dimension giving power to one of the ancient ones other students, Baron Mordo to destroy Doctor Strange, having this power makes him stronger than Strange, and Although it seems a bit long winded, each part is from an anthology comic (Strange Tales) so only ten pages to each issue of Doctor Strange.

Meanwhile the ancient one is failing and Doctor Strange must save him. So it seems for quite some time it is a game of cat and mouse and then it picks up in the last several issues.

    It finally ended. I have no idea why there are so many doctor strange titles in this ultimate Marvel collection. one was enough, and "The Oath" was a better Strange story. They should have stopped with that one. It finally ended.
