Doctor Strange #2

   I'm enjoying this series (so far), though it's certainly taking a different tact on Doctor Strange's adventures.

   It's that combination of unexpected story twists by writer Jason Aaron and unique and vibrant art by Chris Bachalo (with inks by Tim Townsend, Al Vey and Mark Irwin) that makes this series entertaining.

   The story follows the attempts by the Doc to solve the mystery behind some monstrous creatures that seem to spring from a young woman's mind - and the potential for destruction as they run amuck in Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum.

   Something is affecting the world's magics - and that's just a subplot that continues to build here.

   The series maintains a nice balance of weirdness with humor and action - a difficult trick to manage, but one the creative team is managing perfectly - so far!

Grade: A-
