Where to start reading Doctor Strange

Where to start reading Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange was first introduced in the 1963 Strange Tales #110. Those original books are really great, especially the incredible Ditko art, but older comics are hard for new readers to get into.

The current series, Doctor Strange (2015), is a great starting point for new readers. It's modern, funny, beautifully drawn, and I'm really enjoying it.

Here is the current Doctor Strange series in reading order:

Doctor Strange Vol. 1: The Way of the Weird Doctor Strange Vol. 2: The Last Days of Magic Doctor Strange Vol. 3: Blood in the Aether Doctor Strange Vol. 4: Mr. Misery

A great self-contained story

The other option is something self-contained, a single book telling a single story. Strange Origin is a retelling of Stephen's origin story, and you will recognize similar elements from the movie. The Oath is a great book if you just want a well told Doctor Strange adventure.
