    Un Cómic Más

    Fun installment that nourishes this saga focused on the story of this magical marriage, which must fight against powerful obstacles and seek time to love each other.

    Art is full of textures with a classic tone reminiscent of 1970s pulp comics and a cool pastel color palette.

    Even family outings have the potential for chaos when it comes to superheroes, especially two sorcerers supreme, as ‘Doctor Strange’ #11 showcases. A whimsical and rough magical romp is packed full of all that character goodness and pulls from Marvel’s past and present.

    Overall, Doctor Strange #11 is a very fun issue that feels like Jed MacKay’s love letter to the two characters. Clearly, Stephen and Clea are in a sturdy spot and are positioned as one of the most iconic couples at Marvel right now (enough to cameo together in other series) and this issue shows how well Mackay has written them into being perfect compliments of one another. Overall, this is a very fun issue which acts as a fun slice of life short story.

    Doctor Strange #11 delivers a cooldown issue wherein Strange and Clea have their hands full during a babysitting assignment gone wrong. MacKay’s story is amusing without being jokey, and the guest artist on assignment turns in an excellent set of visuals.

    Set before the events of Planet of the Apes, this new Beware the Planet of the Apes focuses on an unexpected meeting between a human and Lucius and the search it ignites in Zira and Cornelius. From the first pages, the book effectively replicates the tone and visual style of the beloved franchise, while also honoring comic book adventures from the ’60s and ’70s. This means the dialugoe is a bit more campy and the color palette is brighter, while the art style still feels relatively contemporary. All of the characters and their interactions feel authentic to how we first met the figures in that debut movie, but with each entry in the franchise bringing with it an engaging narrative hook, this book has yet to offer anything nearly that exciting. We know that we shouldn’t expect any cataclysmic reveals, though even with these tempered expectations, this narrative is off to an underwhelming start, as we haven’t been delivered anything that will command us to come back for the next issue. There’s only so many pages in a single issue of an all-new series that can sink their teeth into a reader, so while the book relatively effectively sets the stage for the adventure that’s about to unfold, we have yet to be given anything that confirms this is a series worth delivering to longtime fans.
