Another day, another Fresh Start announcement.  This time it’s Doctor Strange.

June will see the creative team of Mark Waid and Jesus Saiz relaunch Doctor Strange and… take him into outer space?

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.”

Waid did do a Doctor Strange mini-series with Emma Rios not quite 10 years ago, so he’s not a *ahem* stranger to the character, but I don’t think the intergalactic arc has been done before, at least as a solo/non-event arc.


  1. I’m on board for this.

    Sometimes it seems Waid can be the place-bearer, the guy you turn to as a reliable writer. Then there’s a take on a character to explore and show off Waid’s depth of knowledge, interestingly, I hope.

    Always liked Jesus Saiz since Rucka’s Checkmate, and always take note which book he’s on

  2. Hmmm, Doctor Strange in space, Black Panther in space, Thanos in space, a cosmic ghost rider… Any bets the next event at the end of Infinity Countdown involves more characters in space battling Thanos?
