    This collection has three very distinctly different types of Dr. Strange stories. First is the end of Peter Gillis and Richard Case's 80's strange, which I enjoy very much. SORCERER SUPREME #2 is a favorite issue of mine culminating in Dr. Strange in a rat's body clutching the wings of needless sorrow between his rat-paws and fighting of Dormammu who has taken possession of Dr. Strange's body.

First is the end of Peter Gillis and Richard Case's 80's strange, which I enjoy very much. SORCERER SUPREME #2 is a favorite issue of mine culminating in Dr. Strange in a rat's body clutching the wings of needless sorrow between his rat-paws and fighting of Dormammu who has taken possession of Dr. Strange's body. It gets better. Dormammu is ultimately not defeated by Strange but by Topaz the empath healer who defeats Dormammu by "healing" him. I didn't even yet mention the fact that Strange-in-a-rat befriends a tribe of frogs in order to perform a ritual. I adore this issue. There are a couple of duds right after as Gillis tries to tie up some storylines from The Defenders and then Roy Thomas returns to Dr. Strange with Jackson Guice. Thomas's Strange is immediately different. It's full of jokes, pop-culture references, and idiomatic turns of phrase. Guice's art is just as big a departure. So much so that they had to explain that Strange had started lifting weights. I disliked Guice's art as a teenager, but he clearly has mountains of talent and style. He gives a more sensual treatment to both the men and women which once or twice crosses lines of decency. The art matches the stories as Thomas is more interested in romance than previous Strange writers. A number of storylines are seeded that will have big payoffs later, but this collections only contains the openings. Finally the TRIUMPH AND TORMENT graphic novel written by Roger Stern and illustrated by the famous Mike Mignola. This was my first time reading it, and this is one my favorite stories I've ever read in the medium. Spectacular. I love Dr. Strange. I love Dr. Doom. Stern understands them both and the archetypal themes they bring with their characters, and he has more than just a hero story to tell.

    This collection has equal parts good and bad going for it. the good: Beautiful art by Jackson Guice and Mike Mignola, both at the top of their game. Strange fights Dormammu while in the body of a rat and talks to magic frogs. Roy and Dann Thomas write some fun romance stories thinly disguised as supernatural. Just about everything about the Strange/Doom graphic novel is cool. Especially the colors and the gothic story by Roger Stern. the bad: Ugly 80's art by Richard Case in the first few issues, This collection has equal parts good and bad going for it. the good: Beautiful art by Jackson Guice and Mike Mignola, both at the top of their game.

Especially the colors and the gothic story by Roger Stern. the bad: Ugly 80's art by Richard Case in the first few issues, not a great start for the beginning of a series. Peter Gillis writes a story that ties up some loose ends about some Defenders characters, it doesn't make much sense. Although Guice does such a good job in the art department, he goes out of his way to make every supporting female character look like a model. So the character of Sara Wolf went from being skinny and plain, to looking like a supermodel. It's jarring. Did I really need to see up Clea's skirt? Sexuality makes for some great stories, but when they over-do it, it just seems forced. Such a cool idea, to create a long lost brother who has been dead for years and locked in cold storage with vampire fangs. But then they do nothing with it.

    I loved this. It started off a little rough dealing a lot with the aftermath of Secret Wars II, but once the book was able to be on its own it really took off. The Marvel vampire history stuff was interesting, Baron Mordo selling his soul to two different demons was a nice high stakes story, and the Acts of Vengeance tie-in issues were a lot of fun. However, the best part of this collection was the reprinting of Dr Strange and Dr Doom: Triumph and Torment. Just perfect comic book storytelling. O I loved this.

Roger Stern has a perfect understanding of these characters, Mike Mignola’s art is perfect for these various mystical worlds, and Mark Badger’s colors just add so much to this story. A perfect one and done story that adds so many layers to the Dr Doom, Dr Strange, and even Mephisto characters. This story alone is worth reading this collection. If you are vaguely familiar with Dr Strange, I highly recommend this book.

    Too Text Heavy & Poor Art Fail an Excellent Story OVERALL RATING: 1.75 stars Art: 1.5 stars Prose: 1 stars Plot: 4.5 stars Pacing: 2 stars Character Development: 4 stars World Building: 3 stars Purely rated for Triumph and Torment arc. It seems anything Marvel pre 1998 is just not for me...

    Well apparently comics loosened up in the late 80's and early 90's. There were a lot of 'male gaze' moments in this volume. Well apparently comics loosened up in the late 80's and early 90's. There were a lot of 'male gaze' moments in this volume.

    The Gillis/Case issues are shaky, but it really picks up when the Thomases and Guice take over (though I was surprised to see Guice was so cheesecakey at this point in his career).

    I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed this collection, but really wish that Marvel would publish volume 2.

    This collection had some fun, well-written, well-illustrated issues, but overall they lacked a theme or longer arc that could hold my interest. Many highlight Strange's romantic involvements, primarily to Clea. One issue sees him trying to fight Dormammu while in the body of a NYC rat. Some of the female depictions draw attention to themselves and border on tasteless, as they seem to use reference torn from “Vogue” or “Playboy” circa 1988.

The star, here, though, is the graphic novel “Triumph and Torment,” which is a stand-alone at the end of the collection and can be safely read in isolation. In it, Drs. Strange and Doom journey to Hades to wrest the soul of Doom's mother away from Mephisto. This was a strong story and the creators displayed mastery of the art form, chiefly through Doom’s characterization.
