Didn't see anything on this yet, so we have a new Dr. Strange book by Jason Aaron & Chris Bachalo.
I really liked this for an opening issue, lovely homage / recap page of Ditko art for new readers to get the FAQs on Stephen Strange and then we are straight into the fun. Bachalo's art is a positive for me personally as always loved his style and I think it's a good fit here, it lends itself to bringing the bizarre and supernatural to life around the everyday, a definite benefit of not being super realistic. It was interesting to see how Aaron portrays Strange, I liked it overall, he had a clear personality and it fit with my knowledge of the character and I suspect as issues continue his feel and definition will obviously improve. I liked the references to the 'hand shakes' and how the world at large would perceive someone who is AFK[B?] in public when dealing with other dimensional threats - for me it's these details, that bring a world to life and draw me in.
So we had the recap, character set-up, threat set-up and things best left under your hat! for me Aaron & Bachalo are off to a great start and I will tagging along for the ride, well done to Marvel on this team with this character you just got me buying a Marvel book - Kudos!

Bachalo's art style works with the direction Aaron's writing is bring it. I was almost going to pass because knowing how Marvel has had a tendency to screw things up with older characters. The "Curmudgeon", or Uncle Bob here on the forum, suggested I pick it up at one of the local comic shops and he's never steered me wrong in 30 + years and this book was right on the money. At the very least Marvel is "Lightening Up" a very serious and dark book in the past. I like the first 2 issues and after thinking I was done with new books I may have to re-think that. Dr. Strange will be a definite pick up for as long as Bachalo and Aaron are the team.
