Doctor Strange is getting a new comic series

Posted June 23, 2015 by Dominic Barbiran in Comics & Manga

This new Doctor Strange series will see the Sorcerer Supreme held more accountable for his awesome power.

As part of Marvel’s ‘All-New, All-Different’ campaign, which will bring about 60 new titles this year, Doctor Strange has been confirmed to return to continues his magical misadventures, which will challenge readers to think and feel more than in any of his past story arcs.

The new series will be written by Jason Aaron (Thor, Westworld) and features art by Chris Bachalo (Uncanny X-Men, Incredible Hulk). The hope is to reinvent Doctor Strange’s image, by getting his hands dirty and dealing with the repercussions of his magic use.

Aaron told Entertainment Weekly:

We wanted a Doctor Strange who was always having to work for what he gets, and to show that when he shows up and uses his powers, it’s not like Captain America throwing his shield or Thor throwing his hammer. Strange has to worry about repercussions that those other heroes don’t have to worry about, because he’s a Sorcerer Supreme. We’re talking about the forces of magic. So whatever he does has repressions. Any of this stuff with magic, there’s always a cost to it. I think that’s kind of the only rule of magic we ever really talk about—everything he does, there’s a price to it. So he always has to kind of balance those skills and worry, “if I save the day here, what repercussions will that have for me, or elsewhere in the world? We liked him having to deal with that, and liked him being able to get his hands a little dirty, rather than just having him stand around, waving his hands and saving the day.

Check out some of Chris Bachalo’s concept art of the character below:

We’re looking forward to seeing Doctor Strange cast in a new light, one that has him dealing with the consequences of his actions, both physically and psychologically. What do guys think of this brand new direction they’re taking with Doctor Strange? Leave a comment below!
