This issue was a Doctor Strange focus, and it really worked for me in a lot of ways. I’ve really liked how Fraction has approached Strange as kind of a creep, and this issue developed and deepened that so it’s not just a joke. We see the return of the college chick Strange boned earlier, and also get more mysteries of the weird metal squiggle thing. It somehow managed to resurrect a dead ex of Doctor Strange’s, and why is a mystery even to him. The stuff with Strange and Martha was surprisingly effective and emotional. I wonder if we’ll see her again? The hustling street magician who tried to take on the Doc was an effective protagonist, and I liked how his attempt ended in a Twilight Zone-esque twist kind of a way. This book continues to read unlike any other Marvel book, and it’s great, especially when the bottom of the page ‘captions’ or whatever get as weird as this, it was like a cry for help, except not from Fraction but from some woman. What the? And then there was something commemorating Bill Hicks? What does it all mean? Who knows! Michael Lark of course kicked ass art-wise on this issue, he’s very different from Dodson, but he fit this story very well, it was big, but it wasn’t as madcap superheroey as #1-#3.

The little captions are a bit nuts. Its almost like they are trying to see if we're paying attention.
