    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: is that...etrigan? Looks more fun than I expected from the preview so far

    I suspect the Mephisto deal (and other deals he made recently with miles etc) will be brought up in the Mephisto event that is strongly hinted to happen with the release of the TPB and his other numer...

    The ending hurt, goddamn, but it’s somehow very fitting

    Interesting, so Hell is somewhat outside of our reality and was spared. I wonder if Heaven is too in this case

    @andromeda101: Hm, that’s an interesting choice and could work well (if he isn’t drunk most of the time on set). But I can’t imagine Depp as Strange haha

    Holy shit #16 is fantastic. This arc just keeps going in wild and unexpected directions and it’s all the better for it

    @andromeda101: Read Soldier Supreme, it’s pretty fun, worth checking out if you’re interested in the concept. Waid wrote like half of it too

    After reading some theories, I’m placing bets on the ensemble gathered later being fake to give the real ones a confidence boost@wastelandman: About the ego thing, I don’t think Stephen influenced Dor...

    @andromeda101: From sales numbers #14 sold around 27k (discounting digital, which judging by comixology rankings weren’t too shabby either) which is decent enough and definitely above cancellation num...

    @andromeda101: While it is true previous runs didn’t last long either, sales for Waid’s run has been good so far and the solicit for #20 seems to be hinting at something else, a relaunch maybe, but no...

    The solicit for #20 is so obviously bullshit (a run doesn’t end in the middle of a trade these days), but I am excited to see what the change will be

    @andromeda101: Right, I do like Nightmare more in a schemer/malicious jester role, but he still feels a little too weak or rather, ineffective recently. But then again, he didn’t appear too much, and ...

    @andromeda101: Pretty sure what was shown in #10 is that Nightmare is afraid of Strange, not that Strange can easily defeat him or that Nightmare has no power over him, since it is a dream sequence af...

  • whatisthisdarnthing posted a message in the forum topic ✫The Doctor Strange Discussion Thread☥. on the Doctor Strange board

    Nightmare was wayyy too easily defeated in war scrolls, like come on even if you aren’t scared of him he has power over you

    So secretive for #19, not even a cover?Well, I trust Waid to not screw it up. As long as he doesn’t lose his magic AGAIN, I’m in. Clea also better be involved somehow

    Umar pretty much always backstabs and outsmarts Dormammu in the end so I’m fully expecting her to have something up her sleeveNow that the villain is fully revealed and powered, I wonder where the nex...

    @jrupert1: I don’t think Clea was written as cold though. She basically offered herself up instead of him and showed concern throughout the issue. And to be fair, while not self-indulgent (which this ...
