The main crime that Doctor Strange deals with in his comics is the magic. There are many key issues in every story that deal with magic and this is where most Doctor Strange comic books begin. The most notable issues include the following: the Doctor's first encounter with Kaecz Detail, the mystical alleyways of New York, the mystical possession of Doctor Strange, and the final confrontation between Strange and the evil magician, Baron Wolfgang Grey. These four issues are the start of the exciting adventure that Doctor Strange will take.
There are also many other notable issues in Doctor Strange. One of those is the story featuring the mystical amulet of Doctor Stephen Strange. This is called the Amulet of Truth and it was created as a way for the doctor to understand exactly what is happening to him while he is in the strange state of being called the Sorcerer Supreme. The Amulet of Truth is featured in a number of Doctor Strange comic books including the highly entertaining modern-day adventures featuring the original sorcerer supreme, Dr. Vincent Wallach.
Another interesting piece of material in Doctor Strange vol 1 is a script written by Steve Ditchendorf and illustrated by Bill Compton. It is called the Marvel Superpowers Specials and it delves into some of the strangest psionic attacks that the Sorcerer Supreme has faced. Some of those include the avatar of Dracula, the ghostlike menace of Dracula, the time travelling Xel'naga, and the mind controlling entity, Maleficent. Each of these creatures is defeated by Doctor Strange in his stories and this script delves into some of the science fiction and the historical accounts that are fused together in this exciting series of Doctor Strange comic books.
Doctor Strange vol 4 takes place during the period following the events of the third volume. It features a new story starring the character of Baron von Countess Christoff's daughter, Sarah Christoff. While she is presumed dead, she has been discovered alive and she uses her newly found abilities to start a revolution against the sorcerer supreme, while also trying to free her father from an imprisonment caused by the villain, whom she also blames for her untimely death. This leads to the adventure of the mystical Four Horsemen of the Moon, who are trying to stop the evil sorceress from conquering the world. It also introduces a new magician, Baphomet, who happens to be the primary suspect in Sarah's murder and in curing her father of his cancer.
Steve Englehart took over the Doctor Strange title from Frank Belknavik when the latter passed away due to cancer. Englehart created an impeccable story line and cast an impressive cast that would help make the comic worth reading. He wrote the script and drew the majority of the characters in the book. Various artists contributed to the production of this comic including Sal Buscema, who did a fantastic job as the character of Doctor Strange. Bill Finger and Steve Ditchendorf also contributed to the success of the comic. The quality of the storytelling, the sheer fun characters and the amazing visual artwork of Steve Englehart have made Doctor Strange one of the most popular and memorable comics of all time.
