QBP #046 - Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme #34

Quarter-Bin Podcast #46

Doctor Strange Sorcerer Supreme #34, Marvel Comics, cover-dated March 1991.

"Is There a Doctor NOT in the House?" by Roy & Dann Thomas, with art by Dan Lawlis and Jim Sanders III, with Chris Ivey.

Strange, Druid, Doom, and Doom. There are so many doctors in this issue you'd think it was a medical convention. How many Doctors does it take to screw in a light bulb? That answer is sadly not revealed in this issue, but there are TWO Doctor Dooms in it! And did we mention the cameo appearance by Scarlet Witch? And the journey to Tibet? What can all this mean?

  1. I've never read this issue, but it was especially interesting to hear about because I DID read Infinity Gauntlet as a kid (and re-read it last year) and remember seeing reflected in those pages the events of this issue. I am hoping that as we get closer to a Doctor Strange movie Marvel will add more of his issues to Marvel Unlimited. The offerings there at the moment are a bit meager.

    1. I never read any of the Infinity { whatever } stories, except for the occasional crossover story that showed up in other titles I was reading. I definitely assume that there will be a marketing push when the movie gets closer.

  2. I really dug your coverage of this issue. Dr. Strange has always been a character I've liked but not read a whole lot of. My first introduction to the character was in the pages of the Fireside Books "Bring on the Bad Guys" collection. From there I probably would have next encountered the character as a member of the Defenders, where he's joined by a cast of some of my favorite Marvel characters in Hulk, Namor, and Silver Surfer. So naturally Stephen Strange grew in status among characters I like, but I've never been able to track down any of his solo adventures to determine if I would still enjoy him on his own.

    The Infinity stuff has always been confusing, have they ever released all of these in trade in the proper order? I've read some tie-ins that reference some of the events. but outside the original Infinity Gauntlet, I've never dipped my toes into any of the follow up stuff. From the outside looking in It seems like a daunting task.

    Anyway, throw in Dr. Doom, another favorite of mine, and you got a real winner. Great coverage!

    1. I haven't read any of the later Infinity stories. Infinity Gauntlet, the first of them, I found to be fairly self-contained.

    2. As mostly a DC guy, these big Marvel crossovers seem a bit intimidating. But with the way the Marvel movies seem to be going, I probably ought to learn a bit more about Infinity Things ...
