Hum, sometimes I feel like Waid has actually been reading this thread. Especially with that part of Strange being a jerk in this comic.

I mean, in only eleven months, we've got over 9,000 views here and usually stay listed among the most popular boards. Who knows then? Maybe a few were actually from him, heh!

@andromeda101: I liked it as well. It was quite reminiscent of the type of little stories we used to get, which is welcome after such an arc. And yeah, that ending left me with a smile. That would be funny if Waid has seen this.

Speaking of call backs, that feat of resetting the house (and even with the addition) was nice continuation of his old trend of resetting damaged locations (because he doesn't like to leave behind a mes).

Yeah, lol. I got some vibes from Strange Tales back when Stan and Ditko had Stephen fix the mess at the end of each comic. If I'm not mistaken, Dan Slott used to frequent this site and even had an account here...So yeah, I don't think it's impossible for Waid to have at least read a few posts.

Issue was fun and a great breather issue after the last arc. The solicits overhyped this, but any comic book reader should know better than to trust solicits at this point

@andromeda101:

I would love to see Shuma-Gorath adapted on-screen, but I think they should reserve the character for a third/final movie because it's Strange's most powerful and dangerous enemy after all. Derrickson could use the Fear-Lords in this one instead IMO:

We've got all sorts of different/unique members in the Fear-Lords and makes sense to see them all in a movie thematically addressing the multiverse.

That'd be awesome in fact when Nightmare was first rumored to be the villain I hoped for an adaptation of The Great Fear arc.

Woah, do you have a link? I would've definitely wanted to see that, but yeah, I agree the general audience might not understand anything and could badly hurt the pacing.

@whatisthisdarnthing@wastelandman@jrupert1: Ah, I forgot the comic was out today. I just finished reading, what are your thoughts about it?

I like it, honestly. It feels like a breath of fresh air after the last arc and was a fun read, Stephen's personality and sweet-side were highlighted by Waid in this part:

Which's a good thing for me because I thought Strange was being a bit too jerky in the preview. Reading this comic for me was like watching Spider-Man: Far From Home in the theaters, heh. It wasn't anything groundbreaking, but once again, still fun.

I agree that the issue really wasn't anything special but is good pacing to have this detour after all the action. Waid pretty much did the same thing after the last arc in issue #9.

@wastelandman: @whatisthisdarnthing@jrupert1: Derrickson has shared this on Twitter:

It's from Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme#21 and it's from the same arc as Dormammu's return, but it's also very close to the Great Fear! If Derrickson is reading this volume and if already had plans to bring Nightmare, we could potentially get the rest Fear Lords as well.

Nice catch! This is definitely encouraging if he's currently reading the arc because apparently the script is still being written, so the possibility he's taking inspiration by these stories is strong.

Lame ideas for a new volume aside, I think it makes sense.

He's probably going to "heal" a lot of things, such as his marriage that Marvel decided to ruin for PC reasons.

And once again, I loved Nightmare's portrayal in Loki(2019)#3:

He's almost at Silent Hill's level of terrifying now, I definitely want Derrickson to use a version like this.

@wastelandman@jrupert1@whatisthisdarnthing: So, what'd you guys think about this issue? I like it, especially because Waid has been introducing new lore to Strange's world.

I liked it too though I feel like it treads a lot of old ground with his character, but it's still the first issue in the arc to be fair.

His depiction has been a really present surprise in a series I wasn't expecting much from.

@andromeda101: I quite liked it and as you said, especially the additional lore he added here. Although the crisis took some suspension of disbelief because I could think of several things he could have done that are within his abilities which wouldn't require him to do what he did.

It will be interesting to see how the new development at hand plays out, hopefully it doesn't just end up amounting to nothing (I just see him having to sacrifice them in the near future).

And yes I'm continuously impressed with Nightmare's depiction as of late in, as WastelandMan said, appearances where I wasn't expecting much. If I had one criticism it would be the continued use of the words "my nightmare vision." It's probably just me but it sounds so cheesy and out of place in contrast to his actions. If he were to say to Loki something along the lines of "even the god of lies cannot hide his nightmares, I see what you truly fear." it would retain the tone and gravity of Nightmare better. I just feel the writing should commit and ax the misplaced hokey dialog.

Not too crazy about the concept as I don't see how/why Strange recovering his hands would cause such a supposed impact to the character at this point outside whatever cost the spell he used to heal them had that was hinted at in the last issue. The choice to have Wrecker as an antagonist is also pretty odd. I'm still open to see where it's going but we'll have to wait and see.

Yeah, but Waid apparently will still be the writer and I completely trust his writing. It's a chance for him to continue and conclude that storyline with Mephisto.

I still wonder why Derrickson even picked that terrible purpled-smoke form, really.

I'll give it a chance to this new "Surgeon Supreme" title, I trust Waid and Kev Walker is up there with Jesus Saiz in terms of art-skill. As for his other appearances, I don't want Gerry Duggan anywhere close to him again, but I'm more interested at the moment in knowing what timeline that story from Sword Master takes place in since Strange seems to be using his same attire from LDoM.
