There were about two dozen graphic novels published in the ’80s and only a handful were good. And of those, only a few were great. This was one of them.

One of the best Dr. Strange writers of all time and one of the best superhero/horror creators of all time team up for a Strange/Doom story that closes out the ongoing saga of Doom trying to save his mother’s soul from Mephisto.

Doom and Strange team up to take on Mephisto and get mommy’s soul back. The win, but there’s a catch–thanks to some intricate plotting and a terrific script: Along the way, Doom betrays Strange (as he betrays everyone), and that makes his mother ashamed of him. So her soul is free, but she renounces him.

This is one of the top 10 Dr. Doom comics of all time! See the rest here. It is also one of the best single-issue stories of all time, according to this objectively accurate list.
