For this comic book review I read Strange Tales #117 and the story featuring Dr. Strange Titled “The Many Traps Of Baron Mordo” In this issue, we have a near foolproof plan of Baron Mordo to trap Dr. Strange and his home in another dimension. Then while he is trapped, the Barren plans to face and eliminate the ancient one.
But can the evil man’s plan work, or will Dr. Strange find a way to stand in the face of evil once again? (more…)

The second tale that I reviewed today from Strange Tales #116 is Dr. Strange’s tale, titled “Return To The Nightmare World” and in this mystic story we have a feature length thriller that is reminiscent of the first appearance of Dr. Strange back in Strange Tales #110.
In this tale, we have nightmare trapping people in their sleep into the nightmare dimension so that they never wake up. Thus it is left to Dr. Strange, to do what only he can, stop nightmare and rescue the sleeping victims so that they can awaken. (more…)

That’s right, after having several Dr. Strange stories under our belt, today we get to the origin of our Strange hero. but before i dive into that, if your here looking for the Human Torch story of this issue, please click here for my review of that one.
Dr. Strange is not so unlike our other marvel hero’s , and in fact may have a lot in common with the now cancelled Dr. Droom stories. He was a normal man, a surgeon, with very normal motives. Then like most Marvel comic hero’s a tragic event put him though is paces and lead him down the path that changed his life forever.
But I am not going to spoil the origin for you, it is good enough to be worth reading yourself, so I suggest that you pick it up in reprint, you can get it here:Doctor Strange, Vol. 1 (Marvel Masterworks) (more…)
Strange Tales #114
The Return Of The Omnipotent Baron Mordo!
February 3, 2012 | Drew | (No Comments)
After being gone for a couple month, Dr. Strange returns, and not without editorial explanation on its first page. and I quote:
In Strange Tales #110 and #111 we introduced the mystifying Dr. Strange! Then, we waited to receive your letters, to see if you would want him continued! Well, your enthusiastic mail left us only one choice, and so… We proudly present the third in our newest series…
Now to summarize the story, Dr. Strange is contacted by Sir Clive Bentley, seeking an imitate need for help, despite how odd it is, he is unable to refuse the call, and shows up, little does he know he is walking right into a trap set by Baron Mordo! (more…)
Strange Tales #111
Face-To-Face With The Magic Of Baron Mordo!
December 15, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)
Today’s Comic book review is of Strange Tales #111; and it contains two stories that I have reviewed; This post is for the Dr. Strange story Titled: “Face-To-Face With The Magic Of Baron Mordo!
“. For the Human Torch Story, please click here.
In our second tale of Dr. Strange, we have him face to face with Baron Mordo, or at least trance image to face. Just as the first Dr. Strange tale, this is but 5 short pages, but what it offers in just a few pages is a good story and good character.

In Strange Tales #110, a second key marvel character graced the pages with his own story. This will lead me to review not only the Human Torch Tale, but a tale by another key figure. Who is this character? Why none other than Dr. Strange, a character much more suited to fill the pages of a comic book magazine titled Strange.
Just because his name does not grace the cover of this comic, The Human Torch is still the star story and character of Strange Tales; this would be the beginning of a game changer for the marvel universe. As such it is that much more important that I do a comic book review of it. Worry not Torch fans, you can find his strange Tales #10 Review here as well.
