After reviewing the story from Strange Tales #126 that featured Dr. Strange, I found my self all to eager to read the second part; to bare witness to the conflict between the Doctor and the Dreaded Dormammu. In fact, in the early pages of this adventure, we learn that this Duel does come with a high cost, win or lose. We already knew from the last adventure, that if Dr. Strange lost, Dormammu intends to invade earth. It is in these pages that we learn that if Dormammu looses, that his realm will face great danger from the mindless ones; Thus putting Dr. Strange in the mental realm of not just a hard, but complex ethical conflict, even before the magical duel begins.

What we have here, is Doctor Strange needing to take up a quest to another dimention to save earth from a great and powerful threat. (more…)

In this tale, Loki aims to trick Dr. Strange into helping him defeat Thor, but can such a trick work, or will Dr. Strange realize the truth in time to stop the evil plan?
