Doctor Strange Epic Collection: Alone Against Eternity
Review by Paul Bowler.
Marvel Comics Doctor Strange Epic Collection: Alone Against Eternity collects a magical mix of Bronze Age talent. In this trippy, spellbinding mid-’70’s voyage through the mystic arts, some of Doctor Strange’s most iconic adventures are brought to life by the wondrous talents of Steve Englehart, Marv Wolfman, Jim Starlin, Gene Colan and P.Craig Russell.
Steve Englehart and Gene Colan arguably crafted some of the most breathtaking and classic Doctor Strange storylines of all time. For when Dormammu and Umar and Eternity sweepingly declares that the very end of time itself is imminent. In order to save the world and reality as we know it Stephen Strange will have to confront the most uncanny threat of all – himself! This enchanting and mind-bending saga remains one of my favourite Doctor Strange, and its a delight to revisit it here in this collection.
Also here is the conclusion to Englehart’s run, the spine-chilling Dracula crossover, a trip to hell, and the Time Travelling Occult History of America. Then the brilliant Marv Wolfman and Jim Starlin enchants us with an outstanding confrontation between Doctor Strange and Xander the Merciless and Clea gone mad! With a reality twisting descent into the uncanny Quadriverse, we then reach an unparalleled reckoning as Stephen Strange confronts his status as the Sorcerer Supreme! As if all that wasn’t enough, there’s a gorgeously illustrated annual by co-writer / artist P.Craig Russell to enjoy as well!
With its mesmerising storylines and impressive artwork the Doctor Strange Epic Collection: Alone Against Eternity is a sumptuous mix of arcane wonder and bewitching spectacle on every level. Collecting Doctor Strange (1974) 6-28, Annual (1974) 1 and Tomb of Dracula (1975) 44, this Epic Doctor Strange volume of classic stories is sure to cast a spell over fans old and new alike.
