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…)

In sitting down to do my comic book review for the Ant-Man and Wasp story in Tales To Astonish #44, I realize the importance of this issue. These simple, and short facts must be stated first before I begin even thinking about being critical of the 18 page story.
This issue is the first appearance and the origin of the Wasp, ant-man’s lovely partner, but is introduced to us first as Janet Van Dyne, the daughter of a brilliant scientist.
While I mention the wasp first, it is far from the first important element written into this issue, before we even meet the wasp, we get a good amount of depth built into the background of Dr. Henry Pym, an epic tale of love and death that will build upon the origin we already know.

As I am sure you already know, I been less than thrilled with some aspects of the human torch stories in the strange tales comic books up to this issue. Mostly in relation to the other members of the Fantastic Four, how they treat the Torch, and on the Torches issue of secret identity.
This issue however, does do a bit of a Retcon and helps to address the issue of identity. Read on and I will tell you what I think.
