In this episode of Waiting on the Trade, guest host Tyler Marifke helps us perform a post-mortem, as we discuss Jed MacKay, Lee Garbett, Antonio Fabela and co.’s The Death of Doctor Strange.

This Month’s Discussion Questions

  1. Was this a throwback comic?
  2. Was this book strange enough for you?
  3. What is your favorite classic Doctor Strange-ism?

Explanations, Observations, and Links of Note

  • Send me an email, and maybe I’ll tell you where the one good comic vendor at the Elkhorn Antique Flea Market is located. No promises.
  • To confirm: Baron Mordo is the antagonist in four out of the first six Doctor Strange stories. No wonder those dudes dislike each other. (Nightmare appears in the other two; not a very well-rounded initial rogue’s gallery.)
  • If you’re somehow lucky enough to not know what a turducken is, you can ruin your life by clicking here.
  • And finally, Strange does say “By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth” twice in this book, and I can prove it: 1, 2.
