Doctor Strange (2015-) #22 - Dennis Hopeless,Niko Henrichon,Chris Bachalo

You keep shoving the Secret Empire tie-in in my regularly read comics.   I hate SE.   It's gross.   It's all gross. 

 

It's particularly fucking heinous that you force Doctor Strange to work with Wilson Fisk.  I'm gonna give a big, fucking middle finger to that bullshit.   So here's your one half star, which apparently you've been begging for.  Fuck that bullshit.   Fuck it all.

Strange the Dreamer book review...
Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor

I think I'm in the minority here with not exactly loving this one. I listened to the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series and thoroughly enjoyed that one. While the writing in Strange the Dreamer is quite gorgeous I found myself somewhat bored. Maybe listening to the audio would have helped? I'm not sure. It took me several weeks to read, partly because I've been busy and partly because it just put me in a reading slump. I still love this author and am looking forward to more by her but I probably won't read the next one in this series.

Hey, another Aaron issue!
Doctor Strange (2015-) #20 - Jason Aaron,Chris Bachalo,Kevin Nowlan,Various

Not sure why 20 came out after issue 21, though?   But it was nice to find another Aaron issue, and one not connected to Secret Empire!   When Zelma's life is put on the line for Doctor Strange, he finds himself compelled to consider a solution that will save her life - but also change it forever.   A solution that, by the way, Wong finds so abhorrent that he walks out of the room when Doctor Strange makes the suggestion. 

 

And when Zelma is confronted with the choice, she chooses life no matter the cost.   What will it mean for her, and for Strange himself? 

 

I'm sad to see some things change, but excited by others.   This issue was funny, but showed Zelma to be more than the normal girl she thinks she is: she's warm, brave, and smart.   The art, the writing, everything is top notch, and this issue shakes things up for the next phase in the Doctor Strange series.

STRANGE THE DREAMER BY: LAINI TAYLOR
Strange the Dreamer - Laini Taylor
Hello Lazlo Strange.
 
 
magic in your heart
 
 
I was completely charmed by Lazlo. He was a kindred spirit. A bookworm, a hopeless magical romantic with a wild imagination, a dreamer through and through. He had this pure, untainted hopefulness that most of us adults seem to let diminish as we grow older and I just couldn't get enough. Seeing everything through his eyes made you see the world so full of wonder and adventure and it made the experience so much better. You felt his excitement and it made yours increase in the process.
 
 
dont let reality get in the way
 
 
The mystery of Weep was equally as an enchanting! I found myself trying to figure out exactly what could be happening there right along with Lazlo, and I couldn't have dreamt up anything nearly as wondrous than Laini Taylor did. This place and the people were so interesting. Each little piece of information we got about them just made me want to know more!
 
 
all dreamers
 
 
The writing was beautiful as well. Taylor has a way of truly sweeping you away with her words. She paints a vivid picture and you are bound to find yourself blissfully lost in this world of magic and secrets. Truth be told, I loved this book so much that I tracked down the UK special edition with the blue edged pages and original artwork by the author, and it was signed so I was extra excited. I'm going to be collecting a bunch of Strange the Dreamer goodies for the foreseeable future. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book, especially after that ending! I highly recommend this book to fans of fantasy!
