    2.5 stars. With more black word bubbles than a Venom comic, more comedy than a night at the Apollo, and more D&D references than you can shake a Vorpal Sword +5 at, we have Doctor Strange's Super Secret Empire Crossover Spectacular!!!!! Ok, so I haven't read Secret Empire yet...

    2,5/5 ...

    2,5 Un tomo algo más flojillo que los anteriores. Se nota el cambio de guionista, no hay tanta chispa ni tanto humor como en los tiempos de Jason Aaron. Los cuatro primeros capítulos son un crossover con el Imperio Secreto y, bueno, un poco ni fú ni fá. Y los otros dos capítulo...

    Rather disappointing. I really wish writers who work in a shared universe like Marvel would stop writing absurd pop-culture references for dialogue that's totally out-of-character and think that this passes somehow as characterization. This new series of Doctor Strange was off to a goo...

    Read these individually as they were coming out. ...

    Locked up in Manhattan during Secret Empire Doc Strange teams up with an improbable bunch (Spider-Woman? Wilson Fisk?? Ben Urich???) to defeat Mordo, appointed warden of the island by Hydra. On this feeble premise Hopeless weaves a loose AD&D thread resolved with a mere sleight...

    Secret Empire shows us NYC under the rule of Hydra. Doctor Strange teams up with ...some people to take down Mordo, Captain America's lackey. I have nothing to really say about this volume. It was sloppily done and hard to follow. After the events of Mr. Misery, I was expecting a follo...

    [Read as single issues] Secret Empire comes to town, and Doctor Strange finds himself trapped in the Darkforce Dimension-infested New York. But don't worry, he has help in the form of Spider-Woman, the Kingpin, and...Ben Urich? Okay, maybe this isn't going to go quite as well. This...

    I haven't read the main Secret Empire book (and lbr probably never will) but I really enjoyed this nonsense (I think largely because Hydra Steve was in this for like, 2 panels and seemed extremely tangential to the magical happenings at hand). I'd read another entire volume of just Dr....

    Doctor Strange and grab-bag of other second-tier heroes are trapped in Manhattan under a dark force bubble! Why? I don't know! Some Secret Empire tie-in thing because Captain America is a Nazi. Don't worry, it doesn't really matter. The underexplained setup is a solid excuse for Doc...

    I was a little leery heading into this volume. I knew the whole Secret Empire arc was winding it's way through the Marvel universe. Normally these tie-ins to larger arcs aren't handled very well, BUT this one was so good! It integrated both where Doctor Strange had been with the larger...

    This was a collection of references, and not really a lot more than that. I caught: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, several DnD references, some chess (which were also pointet out by the characters), and there was probably more that I didn't catch. And there was so much "funny" banter...

    The Secret Empire issues are, unsurprisingly, not great, and don't make a great deal of sense if you've been avoiding Secret Empire like the plague. Fortunately, the book closes out with two issues of one-off stories that are actually quite good. Maybe read those and skip the first fou...

    Spider-woman got cancelled and Hopeless throws her in here for one last hurrah. It doesn't really make sense. Hey, who could beat an all-powerful sorcerer and his demonic hordes? A woman who can shot small energy blasts and her reporter friend with no powers but a thorough knowledg...

    This is a bit of a stopgap volume but still really enjoyable. Dennis Hopeless and John Barber do a good job of continuing the tone of the modern Doctor Strange from Jason Aaron's excellent run with some light stories. There's also the bonus of a fun appearance from Spider-Woman, most r...

    Great read but feels out of order The first of three is part of the Secret Empire story and has a short paragraph for an intro. Good read but doesn't have an end in this volume. Stories two and three are independent and don't seem to impact the overall storyline. Skippable for sure...

    This was probably the best of the Secret Empire side stories. This whole volume takes place during the Dark Dome Manhattan story. This should be ready early in comparison to the main focus story while the ending has something of a Empire Strikes Back feeling to it. Alliances are made t...

    Even with the help from a multitude of different superheroes (Captain America to Daredevil, Spider-Woman to Iron Fist), the Doctor Strange series has become a complete disappointment. Goodbye, Stephen. ...

    A stunning new comic that takes Doctor Strange in a new direction fighting Mordor for the Sanctum Sanctorum with the help of Jess, Ulrich, and Kingpin. http://nicolewbrown.blogspot.com/2018... ...

    Not as Good as the others were, I'm afraid. This one lacked humor (I loved the Lord of the rings reference, though) and the story was not as interesting as the last ones. But altogether a solid book. ...

    Always Great Not as much story in this volume but still is a great collection of stories by the amazing Doctor Strange! ...

    A stunning new comic that takes Doctor Strange in a new direction fighting Mordor for the Sanctum Sanctorum with the help of Jess, Ulrich, and Kingpin. http://nicolewbrown.blogspot.com/2018... ...

    Not as Good as the others were, I'm afraid. This one lacked humor (I loved the Lord of the rings reference, though) and the story was not as interesting as the last ones. But altogether a solid book. ...

    Always Great Not as much story in this volume but still is a great collection of stories by the amazing Doctor Strange! ...

    i only liked the non secret empire issues ...

    I liked seeing him working with Daredevil and such. Fun seeing his part of the Captain America fallout! ...

    Good, but felt like it lost a little of its magic (ha). ...

    2.5 stars. With more black word bubbles than a Venom comic, more comedy than a night at the Apollo, and more D&D references than you can shake a Vorpal Sword +5 at, we have Doctor Strange's Super Secret Empire Crossover Spectacular!!!!! Ok, so I haven't read Secret Empire yet...

    2,5/5 ...

    2,5 Un tomo algo más flojillo que los anteriores. Se nota el cambio de guionista, no hay tanta chispa ni tanto humor como en los tiempos de Jason Aaron. Los cuatro primeros capítulos son un crossover con el Imperio Secreto y, bueno, un poco ni fú ni fá. Y los otros dos capítulo...

    Rather disappointing. I really wish writers who work in a shared universe like Marvel would stop writing absurd pop-culture references for dialogue that's totally out-of-character and think that this passes somehow as characterization. This new series of Doctor Strange was off to a goo...

    Locked up in Manhattan during Secret Empire Doc Strange teams up with an improbable bunch (Spider-Woman? Wilson Fisk?? Ben Urich???) to defeat Mordo, appointed warden of the island by Hydra. On this feeble premise Hopeless weaves a loose AD&D thread resolved with a mere sleight...

    Secret Empire shows us NYC under the rule of Hydra. Doctor Strange teams up with ...some people to take down Mordo, Captain America's lackey. I have nothing to really say about this volume. It was sloppily done and hard to follow. After the events of Mr. Misery, I was expecting a follo...

    [Read as single issues] Secret Empire comes to town, and Doctor Strange finds himself trapped in the Darkforce Dimension-infested New York. But don't worry, he has help in the form of Spider-Woman, the Kingpin, and...Ben Urich? Okay, maybe this isn't going to go quite as well. This...

    I haven't read the main Secret Empire book (and lbr probably never will) but I really enjoyed this nonsense (I think largely because Hydra Steve was in this for like, 2 panels and seemed extremely tangential to the magical happenings at hand). I'd read another entire volume of just Dr....

    New York is under a very scar, dark magic bubble, and Doctor Strange has a lot less magic than he's used to not having as Baron Mordo has taken over his house. Most of the volume is a blast following Strange, Spiderwoman, and Wilson Fisk working together. Fun overall as usual but there...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this volume. While I fundamentally don't like the whole "Captain America, Sleeper Hydra Agent" story line, that particular plot point wasn't the focus of this book. Sure, Cap was there, but this was really Doctor Strange v. Baron Mordo. And that conflict was perfec...

    Doctor Strange's contribution to the Secret Empire event is different from all the others in that it takes place in NYC, where the Darkforce has enclosed the city in a dome. Teaming up with Daredevil, Spider-Woman, Ben Urich and Wilson Fisk, Strange takes on all the evil forces, as wel...

    I really enjoyed this instalment of the Doctor Strange graphic novels, which collects - I think - Issues 21-26. The team-up with the street level heroes of Hell's Kitchen (Daredevil, Iron Fist and Luke Cage) was inspired, and the snarky banter was everything I could have wished. Spe...

    Doctor Strange and grab-bag of other second-tier heroes are trapped in Manhattan under a dark force bubble! Why? I don't know! Some Secret Empire tie-in thing because Captain America is a Nazi. Don't worry, it doesn't really matter. The underexplained setup is a solid excuse for Doc...

    I was a little leery heading into this volume. I knew the whole Secret Empire arc was winding it's way through the Marvel universe. Normally these tie-ins to larger arcs aren't handled very well, BUT this one was so good! It integrated both where Doctor Strange had been with the larger...

    This was a collection of references, and not really a lot more than that. I caught: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, several DnD references, some chess (which were also pointet out by the characters), and there was probably more that I didn't catch. And there was so much "funny" banter...

    The Secret Empire issues are, unsurprisingly, not great, and don't make a great deal of sense if you've been avoiding Secret Empire like the plague. Fortunately, the book closes out with two issues of one-off stories that are actually quite good. Maybe read those and skip the first fou...

    2,5 Un tomo algo más flojillo que los anteriores. Se nota el cambio de guionista, no hay tanta chispa ni tanto humor como en los tiempos de Jason Aaron. Los cuatro primeros capítulos son un crossover con el Imperio Secreto y, bueno, un poco ni fú ni fá. Y los otros dos capítulo...

    Rather disappointing. I really wish writers who work in a shared universe like Marvel would stop writing absurd pop-culture references for dialogue that's totally out-of-character and think that this passes somehow as characterization. This new series of Doctor Strange was off to a goo...

    Read these individually as they were coming out. ...

    Locked up in Manhattan during Secret Empire Doc Strange teams up with an improbable bunch (Spider-Woman? Wilson Fisk?? Ben Urich???) to defeat Mordo, appointed warden of the island by Hydra. On this feeble premise Hopeless weaves a loose AD&D thread resolved with a mere sleight...

    Secret Empire shows us NYC under the rule of Hydra. Doctor Strange teams up with ...some people to take down Mordo, Captain America's lackey. I have nothing to really say about this volume. It was sloppily done and hard to follow. After the events of Mr. Misery, I was expecting a follo...

    [Read as single issues] Secret Empire comes to town, and Doctor Strange finds himself trapped in the Darkforce Dimension-infested New York. But don't worry, he has help in the form of Spider-Woman, the Kingpin, and...Ben Urich? Okay, maybe this isn't going to go quite as well. This...

    I haven't read the main Secret Empire book (and lbr probably never will) but I really enjoyed this nonsense (I think largely because Hydra Steve was in this for like, 2 panels and seemed extremely tangential to the magical happenings at hand). I'd read another entire volume of just Dr....

    New York is under a very scar, dark magic bubble, and Doctor Strange has a lot less magic than he's used to not having as Baron Mordo has taken over his house. Most of the volume is a blast following Strange, Spiderwoman, and Wilson Fisk working together. Fun overall as usual but there...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this volume. While I fundamentally don't like the whole "Captain America, Sleeper Hydra Agent" story line, that particular plot point wasn't the focus of this book. Sure, Cap was there, but this was really Doctor Strange v. Baron Mordo. And that conflict was perfec...

    Doctor Strange's contribution to the Secret Empire event is different from all the others in that it takes place in NYC, where the Darkforce has enclosed the city in a dome. Teaming up with Daredevil, Spider-Woman, Ben Urich and Wilson Fisk, Strange takes on all the evil forces, as wel...

    I really enjoyed this instalment of the Doctor Strange graphic novels, which collects - I think - Issues 21-26. The team-up with the street level heroes of Hell's Kitchen (Daredevil, Iron Fist and Luke Cage) was inspired, and the snarky banter was everything I could have wished. Spe...

    Doctor Strange and grab-bag of other second-tier heroes are trapped in Manhattan under a dark force bubble! Why? I don't know! Some Secret Empire tie-in thing because Captain America is a Nazi. Don't worry, it doesn't really matter. The underexplained setup is a solid excuse for Doc...

    I was a little leery heading into this volume. I knew the whole Secret Empire arc was winding it's way through the Marvel universe. Normally these tie-ins to larger arcs aren't handled very well, BUT this one was so good! It integrated both where Doctor Strange had been with the larger...

    This was a collection of references, and not really a lot more than that. I caught: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, several DnD references, some chess (which were also pointet out by the characters), and there was probably more that I didn't catch. And there was so much "funny" banter...

    The Secret Empire issues are, unsurprisingly, not great, and don't make a great deal of sense if you've been avoiding Secret Empire like the plague. Fortunately, the book closes out with two issues of one-off stories that are actually quite good. Maybe read those and skip the first fou...

    Spider-woman got cancelled and Hopeless throws her in here for one last hurrah. It doesn't really make sense. Hey, who could beat an all-powerful sorcerer and his demonic hordes? A woman who can shot small energy blasts and her reporter friend with no powers but a thorough knowledg...

    This is a bit of a stopgap volume but still really enjoyable. Dennis Hopeless and John Barber do a good job of continuing the tone of the modern Doctor Strange from Jason Aaron's excellent run with some light stories. There's also the bonus of a fun appearance from Spider-Woman, most r...

    Great read but feels out of order The first of three is part of the Secret Empire story and has a short paragraph for an intro. Good read but doesn't have an end in this volume. Stories two and three are independent and don't seem to impact the overall storyline. Skippable for sure...

    This was probably the best of the Secret Empire side stories. This whole volume takes place during the Dark Dome Manhattan story. This should be ready early in comparison to the main focus story while the ending has something of a Empire Strikes Back feeling to it. Alliances are made t...

    Even with the help from a multitude of different superheroes (Captain America to Daredevil, Spider-Woman to Iron Fist), the Doctor Strange series has become a complete disappointment. Goodbye, Stephen. ...

    A stunning new comic that takes Doctor Strange in a new direction fighting Mordor for the Sanctum Sanctorum with the help of Jess, Ulrich, and Kingpin. http://nicolewbrown.blogspot.com/2018... ...

    Not as Good as the others were, I'm afraid. This one lacked humor (I loved the Lord of the rings reference, though) and the story was not as interesting as the last ones. But altogether a solid book. ...

    Always Great Not as much story in this volume but still is a great collection of stories by the amazing Doctor Strange! ...

    i only liked the non secret empire issues ...

    2.5 stars. With more black word bubbles than a Venom comic, more comedy than a night at the Apollo, and more D&D references than you can shake a Vorpal Sword +5 at, we have Doctor Strange's Super Secret Empire Crossover Spectacular!!!!! Ok, so I haven't read Secret Empire yet...

    2,5/5 ...

    2,5 Un tomo algo más flojillo que los anteriores. Se nota el cambio de guionista, no hay tanta chispa ni tanto humor como en los tiempos de Jason Aaron. Los cuatro primeros capítulos son un crossover con el Imperio Secreto y, bueno, un poco ni fú ni fá. Y los otros dos capítulo...

    Rather disappointing. I really wish writers who work in a shared universe like Marvel would stop writing absurd pop-culture references for dialogue that's totally out-of-character and think that this passes somehow as characterization. This new series of Doctor Strange was off to a goo...

    Read these individually as they were coming out. ...

    Locked up in Manhattan during Secret Empire Doc Strange teams up with an improbable bunch (Spider-Woman? Wilson Fisk?? Ben Urich???) to defeat Mordo, appointed warden of the island by Hydra. On this feeble premise Hopeless weaves a loose AD&D thread resolved with a mere sleight...

    Secret Empire shows us NYC under the rule of Hydra. Doctor Strange teams up with ...some people to take down Mordo, Captain America's lackey. I have nothing to really say about this volume. It was sloppily done and hard to follow. After the events of Mr. Misery, I was expecting a follo...

    [Read as single issues] Secret Empire comes to town, and Doctor Strange finds himself trapped in the Darkforce Dimension-infested New York. But don't worry, he has help in the form of Spider-Woman, the Kingpin, and...Ben Urich? Okay, maybe this isn't going to go quite as well. This...

    I haven't read the main Secret Empire book (and lbr probably never will) but I really enjoyed this nonsense (I think largely because Hydra Steve was in this for like, 2 panels and seemed extremely tangential to the magical happenings at hand). I'd read another entire volume of just Dr....

    New York is under a very scar, dark magic bubble, and Doctor Strange has a lot less magic than he's used to not having as Baron Mordo has taken over his house. Most of the volume is a blast following Strange, Spiderwoman, and Wilson Fisk working together. Fun overall as usual but there...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this volume. While I fundamentally don't like the whole "Captain America, Sleeper Hydra Agent" story line, that particular plot point wasn't the focus of this book. Sure, Cap was there, but this was really Doctor Strange v. Baron Mordo. And that conflict was perfec...

    Doctor Strange's contribution to the Secret Empire event is different from all the others in that it takes place in NYC, where the Darkforce has enclosed the city in a dome. Teaming up with Daredevil, Spider-Woman, Ben Urich and Wilson Fisk, Strange takes on all the evil forces, as wel...

    I really enjoyed this instalment of the Doctor Strange graphic novels, which collects - I think - Issues 21-26. The team-up with the street level heroes of Hell's Kitchen (Daredevil, Iron Fist and Luke Cage) was inspired, and the snarky banter was everything I could have wished. Spe...

    Doctor Strange and grab-bag of other second-tier heroes are trapped in Manhattan under a dark force bubble! Why? I don't know! Some Secret Empire tie-in thing because Captain America is a Nazi. Don't worry, it doesn't really matter. The underexplained setup is a solid excuse for Doc...

    I was a little leery heading into this volume. I knew the whole Secret Empire arc was winding it's way through the Marvel universe. Normally these tie-ins to larger arcs aren't handled very well, BUT this one was so good! It integrated both where Doctor Strange had been with the larger...

    This was a collection of references, and not really a lot more than that. I caught: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, several DnD references, some chess (which were also pointet out by the characters), and there was probably more that I didn't catch. And there was so much "funny" banter...

    The Secret Empire issues are, unsurprisingly, not great, and don't make a great deal of sense if you've been avoiding Secret Empire like the plague. Fortunately, the book closes out with two issues of one-off stories that are actually quite good. Maybe read those and skip the first fou...

    Spider-woman got cancelled and Hopeless throws her in here for one last hurrah. It doesn't really make sense. Hey, who could beat an all-powerful sorcerer and his demonic hordes? A woman who can shot small energy blasts and her reporter friend with no powers but a thorough knowledg...

    This is a bit of a stopgap volume but still really enjoyable. Dennis Hopeless and John Barber do a good job of continuing the tone of the modern Doctor Strange from Jason Aaron's excellent run with some light stories. There's also the bonus of a fun appearance from Spider-Woman, most r...

    Great read but feels out of order The first of three is part of the Secret Empire story and has a short paragraph for an intro. Good read but doesn't have an end in this volume. Stories two and three are independent and don't seem to impact the overall storyline. Skippable for sure...

    This was probably the best of the Secret Empire side stories. This whole volume takes place during the Dark Dome Manhattan story. This should be ready early in comparison to the main focus story while the ending has something of a Empire Strikes Back feeling to it. Alliances are made t...

    Even with the help from a multitude of different superheroes (Captain America to Daredevil, Spider-Woman to Iron Fist), the Doctor Strange series has become a complete disappointment. Goodbye, Stephen. ...

    A stunning new comic that takes Doctor Strange in a new direction fighting Mordor for the Sanctum Sanctorum with the help of Jess, Ulrich, and Kingpin. http://nicolewbrown.blogspot.com/2018... ...

    Not as Good as the others were, I'm afraid. This one lacked humor (I loved the Lord of the rings reference, though) and the story was not as interesting as the last ones. But altogether a solid book. ...

    Always Great Not as much story in this volume but still is a great collection of stories by the amazing Doctor Strange! ...
