Never attempt to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and annoys the pig.
Decades before the waterbed was patented and popularized in America, science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein (born July 7, 1907) described them in detail in his books.
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.
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.
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.
