See how issue #3 of the new series ties into the cosmic event!
After finding the magic of planet Earth depleted, Doctor Strange takes to the stars.
There, he expects to find alien sorcerers and mystical artifacts, but in DOCTOR STRANGE #3, he finds something much more powerful…an Infinity Stone!
This July, the Super-Skrull has the Time Stone, and Doctor Strange can’t let him keep it in this special INFINITY WARS lead-in!
Written by Mark Waid with art by Jesus Saiz, Stephen Strange joins the escalating action of this cosmic event.
As series editor Nick Lowe describes the action, things are going to get messy pretty quickly for the mage. “As if you didn’t need enough reasons to pick up DOCTOR STRANGE #1 next week, did we mention that issue #3 is part of the set up for INFINITY WARS? A nearly de-powered Doctor Strange ends up face-to-face with the Super Skrull, which puts Stephen in deep doo-doo. And Strange doesn’t even know the Skrull has an Infinity Stone. So I guess this is the last issue of DOCTOR STRANGE?”
On July 4, journey across the stars with the INFINITY WARS lead-in DOCTOR STRANGE #3, by Mark Waid and Jesus Saiz!
Mark Waid and Jesus Saiz send the Sorcerer Supreme to space!
This June, writer Mark Waid and artist Jesus Saiz are set for a journey across the universe in DOCTOR STRANGE #1!
The Eye of Agamotto is closed! Doctor Stephen Strange has lost his connection to the Earth’s arcane power, and he can’t wait to recover while nightmares press against the seams of our reality. Tony Stark offers a 21st-century solution: when astral travel fails, try astronautical travel. Enter Doctor Strange: Space-Explorer Supreme!
Different spells, allies, and enemies—new and old—await Strange beyond the stars, along with corners and secrets of the Marvel Universe, seen here for the first time! Space is endless, but time is short. After years of threats, Stephen’s bill for magic-use is coming due—who will come to collect?!
“I’ve been a Strange fan forever, but I’ve never been lucky enough to write an extended run featuring the good doctor. Along with editor Nick Lowe, we’ve come up with some new and very unexpected places to take Stephen Strange in the Marvel Universe—starting with the stars. When Strange’s magic suddenly exhausts itself, he’ll have to travel off-earth to recharge his batteries,” teases Waid, “Let’s hope he survives the trip.”
And Jesus Saiz shares a similar excitement for the extraordinary adventures to come: “Working on this book is an absolute delight. I’ve always enjoyed depicting bizarre characters in fantastic settings much more than portraying the real world, and in that sense this comic really delivers! I don’t like to use photographic references, as you need to do when you are drawing a particular car, weapon, or specific New York street. I prefer to draw with inspiration directly from my head, and Doctor Strange is the perfect book for that!”
Doctor Strange #1 Cover by Jesus Saiz
The artist continues, “If I have to think about the biggest challenge while working on this book, it’d probably be giving all the different aliens and worlds a distinctive, interesting look. For inspiration, I try to have my eyes very open, because you never know where the could come from. It could be a fashion photo, an undersea creature, or a Bosch painting…everything can give you a silhouette, or a color scheme, or something to start working with. I only try to avoid actual science-fiction images because I want this book to look as fresh as possible.”
“And you know, Mark is simply fantastic,” says Saiz, “I love how, even when he writes the most crazy, outrageous, fantastic scenes, he never loses touch with the characters or the story he is telling. And he really gives you the most wonderful stuff to draw! We’re only getting started with this, and I believe we are both really trying to create a story that nobody will ever forget. We’re taking Doctor Strange from his lowest and giving him a new life, new goals. He’ll have to learn everything again to emerge a better man, a new leader. If he survives this ordeal, that is!”
