I don't blame Stephen for tagging Namor out of this one...


The other day, I had to go get a plunger from the dollar store; but the trip was made worthwhile by picking up a few two-packs of comics there. Like today's book! From Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme #50, "The Heart of Darkness" Written by Len Kaminski, art and shiny cover by Geof Isherwood.

Describing himself as "dispossessed" by his mystic sponsors, Dr. Strange is at his least powerful; just as Dormammu has picked up a ton of power, some extra arms and eyes, and conquered his and Clea's Dark Dimension. To help out, Strange calls in his Defenders: the Hulk, the Silver Surfer, and Namor the Ghost Rider! The latter proves to be a key part of Strange's plan, as he takes Ghost Rider's power and mind into his body, then astral projects into Dormammu!

In the end, Dormammu may be beaten, or he may just have decided the stupid Dark Dimension wasn't worth the hassle. Strange worries Dormammu may be after bigger fish, and to add insult to injury, Strange's beloved Clea has to stay with her home, to help rebuild and defend it. Still, after his friends are gone, an exhausted Strange falls asleep...

That better not be those Westboro Baptist Church jerkholes...I'm curious about the next issue now, actually.
