    One thought on “Doctor Strange: The Flight of Bones”

    1. The Flight of Bones (what a crap title!) is a collection of rubbish, random Doctor Strange stories from the ‘90s and ‘00s.Dan Jolley and Tony Harris’s title story is a four issue miniseries which is basically the standard “selling your soul to Satan” cliché with some added Strange/Dormammu magic fighting. Harris’ art is superb, as are the layouts, all accentuated by Matt Hollingsworth’s excellent colours, though the visuals are the only noteworthy aspect of these comics – Jolley [...]

    2. Doctor Strange: The Flight of Bones is magic meets noir, Doc Strange as supernatural detective and other stuff, 1999 team-produced writing and art, just rereleased. Collection of stories that are okay, give you a flavor of Strange in the nineties. Working my way back to Stan Lee's beginnings I just have a pile of Strange here to prepare to see the movie. Sort of. Or just taking the movie as a na occasion to know this guy. The image of Strange is intriguing, the origin is interesting, but there a [...]

    3. The main story from the Marvel Knights era is quite good. Dan Jolley and Tony Harris work together often and it shows. Tony Harris's art is made for a mystical book like this. The rest of the book consists of Dr. Strange filler, short stories from other books. The only notable one was by Keiron Gillen and Fraser Irving. For some reason most of the filler material is in black and white.

    4. Meh, it was okay. No intertwining stories, all stand alone so I don't see why there was a need to have them all together. A lot of older Doctor Strange stories, with an older Doctor Strange. Seems like though for some of the stories you need to know a little bit of the Doctor Strange original origin and activities to know what's going on here.

    5. The main story was rather generic, but the book actually had a number of more experimental Dr. Strange stories from around that era, often by established talents, that made up a bit for the genericness of the majority of the book.

    6. The art is good and the main story arc builds slowly during the first 2 parts but the second 2 are rushed in a way to add Dormammu as a villain. Some of the stand alones are okay but really have no purpose. The best part is probably the journal of Stephan Strange at the end.

    7. In this graphic novel we see Doctor Strange has fully accepted his role in the world of magic and still looking for ways to heal himself physically. He has become one of the world’s greatest magicians. He fights evil trying to take over the world while combating his own troubles. This is my first delve into the world of Marvel’s Doctor Strange. I became interested after seeing the Doctor Strange movie with Benedict Cumberbatch (which was awesome!). There are about 4 or 5 stories in this grap [...]

    8. I've read a couple of other Doctor Strange books recently. This one came along as part of the October 2016 Comic Bento box. It's a good collection of stories centered around the character, but it didn't feel as strong as the other books.Doctor Strange is a sorcerer that investigates supernatural phenomena and protects the Marvel universe from magical threats. There is a decent introduction to the character explaining who he was, how he got his powers, and what he does now. This is spread out thr [...]

    9. This is a very eclectic collection of Doctor Strange stories from the late 1990s. The first 4 part story is quite good, with some great art. However, the rest of the volume is uneven, with mostly very trippy black and white stories that I had trouble getting into. Not a bad Strange book, but you could do better.

    10. a collection of late 90s material show little has changed since the Lee/Ditka days of the 60s. some very considerable talent applies itself here, including Jim Starling, Kieran Gillan & Peter McCarthy, all too little effect. solid storytelling and some nice visuals from the hosts writing & drawing this little anthology.

    11. A collection of stories featuring great artists like Tony Harris (Starman) and Frazer Irving (Batman and Robin, Zombi), and more, that offer a glimpse in the Doctor Strange's different adventures during late 90's publishing Marvel Comics. Not the best or most important stories, but varied enough to get you interested in the different approaches the character can take.

    12. The art for the main story, Flight of Bones, struck me as something that would fit better in a Hellblazer comic, as opposed to Doctor Strange.

    13. Can't help but feel the noir/detective elements were added to compete with likes of DC's John Constantine (which is odd because Dr. Fate has always been DC's premiere mystic while John is a "dabbling" street-level mage more equivalent to Damian Hellstrum or Blade) still I love the darker elements of Strange and he fits noir very well, and the anthology structure has always worked better than the big overarching blow out still it has its problems and if your not as sold on the noir-anthology thin [...]

    14. I really wanted to give this that extra star but there were a few things that didn't quite work, mostly how in the main story Strange doesn't do the trope of aliterative rhyming for his spells. Other than that it is a great Doctor Strange tale. Some of the back ups (reprints from Marvel's b&w experiments) are really good as well.There is a cap in panel in the Michael Golden b&w story that is missing the text, was this a misprint? Deliberate as it is editing on the context or something? J [...]

    15. E' una bellissima raccolta. La storia principale, che da il titolo al volume, varrebbe da sola il prezzo di copertina. Mi sono innamorata delle tavole in stile art nouveau e degli "abiti civili" di Strange, che riprendono lo stile molto noir della storia. Il resto della raccolta dà un'idea complessiva delle sfaccettature del carattere del Dottore; alcune divertenti, altre più filosofiche. Sono particolarmente belli anche i disegni del primo capitolo di "The Hands of Doctor Strange".

    16. Doctor Strange has become my new favorite super hero of late. I so love the mystic Arts and Mysticism. He is so strange but I so love him. I so love the movie and I so love him comics and trade paperback. I will invest my effort in reading in other Doctor Who comics in the future.
