Mark Badger arrives for a two-part Dr. Strange story, which is followed in issue #20 with a Clea solo story (her first, I believe).
Obviously, Badger gives us great art. And the story is pretty wild—it has demon bees.
I can start to see how Fabian Nicieza will turn into a Deadpool writer (and one of the best at that).
The story is a haunted house story, with the child of the house being possesed in wild and wacky ways.
It’s odd to give Strange a story in MCP since he has his own solo book, but it’s well done so I appreciate it.
And speaking of the monthly Dr. Strange book, series writer Peter Gillis does a short Clea tale checking in with her role as the head of the Dark Dimension. I don’t really understand why this is appearing here and not in the Strange title, but it’s pretty good.
