Marvel Announces New Series for Dr. Strange

Doctor StrangeThe world within Marvel Comics is set to go “All-New, All-Different” this fall. One of the main characters featured in their new push is Doctor Strange, who will get a brand new solo series that’s being written by Jason Aaron (the scribe behind the last few Thor series) and drawn by Chris Bachalo (of Incredible Hulk and Uncanny X-Men fame). This choice might sound weird, but with a Doctor Strange film (with Benedict Cumberbatch playing the title role) set to be released in 2016 right after the first part of Captain America: Infinity War, now’s the perfect time for Marvel to breathe new life into the magician.

In a recent interview with EW, Aaron spelled out what he was looking to accomplish with this series:

“We wanted a Doctor Strange who was always having to work for what he gets, and to show that when he shows up and uses his powers, it’s not like Captain America throwing his shield or Thor throwing his hammer. Strange has to worry about repercussions that those other heroes don’t have to worry about, because he’s a Sorcerer Supreme. We’re talking about the forces of magic. So whatever he does has repressions. Any of this stuff with magic, there’s always a cost to it.”

Marvel editor Nick Lowe told EW that “This is a Doctor Strange who is going to get hurt real bad, real quick. And who is also going to make you feel things… And not just think things, but feel things… hopefully a little bit of both.”

With Aaron saying that people at Marvel “talk about Doctor Strange being the linchpin book for this very unique corner of the Marvel Universe,” it will be interesting to see how the world of magic will be features within Marvel for years to come.
