Doctor Strange says goodbye to Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo in a final volume that is not entirely convincing. Panini Comics prepares the operating room for two doctors to get down to work and not let everything go wrong.
The necessary cameo
There are times when there is no evil that does not come for good and having the same scriptwriter in at least two series from the same publisher can serve to unite the paths of Doctor Strange with those of another doctor, one who carries a hammer but does not respond to the Donald Blake’s name, rather it is about Jane Foster, a surgeon to be exact and far removed from her days as a nurse in the sixties of the 20th century, when she was a mere object of desire for the crippled blond with a wooden cane. Jane precisely evolved severely in the world of superheroes because of Jason Aaron, who had her at that time occupying the place of a certain unworthy Odinson.
So it comes to the hair that both come together in the middle of the outcome of the present stage of the Supreme Sorcerer of the Earth, an ending that we will talk about a little later but that does not quite finish off a stage that had made perfect use of the crazy compositions by its head cartoonist, a Chris Bachalo in full force who could not always cover all the episodes and had to be covered by the art of Frazer Irving or Kevin Knowlan, in the numbers contained here of the regular head of the good Doctor.
An Annual to stage a breakup
We also have Annual # 1 of this volume of the adventures of Stephen Strange, with a script by Kathryn Immonen and drawing by Leonardo Romero, in which we will be able to see how the marriage between Stephen and Clea dissolves, which we can define clearly like the love of his life. If you don’t believe us, you can currently witness how the sorceress from the Dark Dimension has taken the place of Stranger to try to resuscitate him at all costs, a company of which she is very capable but for the moment she is leaving us scenes for the future. I remember, not only for the action but for the humorous approach that Jed MacKay applies to the collection.
But here were different times and Clea is ready to close the love relationship that has united her for many years with the Master of the Mystic Arts. It is not a see you forever, it is a form of transition towards an enduring friendship, forged in mutual affection and due to the lack of common coexistence that makes it difficult to talk about love in the distance. They say that to want is to be able, but their destinies looked in opposite directions and it was a loose end that it was worth tying at that moment so that they could move forward in their feelings if other closer people appeared.
Aaron doesn’t always close the door properly on the way out
Jason Aaron has had mythical stages in several Marvel collections and in others far from La Casa de las Ideas, in the independent comic. Citing his Wolverine and The X-Patrol or his passage through Thor are a sufficient resume to be able to boast, without citing Scalped or Paletos Cabrones. But in recent times he has not quite hit the key and perhaps the case of his departure from the Doctor Strange collection is only the first symptom of a certain creative exhaustion that has been increasing in his time at The Most Powerful Heroes of the Land. The Avengers of him aren’t done running any more than closing him here.
It seemed like we were in for a really good time for the Sorcerer Supreme, with a solid foundation around the demise of his magic and the cost of each new summoning but it all ends up jerky and with a sense of incoherence, of hasty closure, of giving up. prevailing position to the character of Zelma Stanton by introducing her into the mystical world as a full-fledged apprentice. We can almost see similarities with Clea herself when I take that same place but lacking the epic component, too simple, forced although in a certain logical way, but that leaves us cold, it doesn’t quite work, just as the defeat of Mr. Agony doesn’t.
