Doctor Strange: Damnation #2 (of 4)

Comicscore Index
Generally favorable ratings

Based on 4 critic ratings.

Mephisto has taken up some major real estate in Las Vegas, but he’s not going to stop there. He’s got the rest of Earth on his “TO GET” list and only Doctor Strange can stop him. The only downside? Strange went into Mephisto’s Hotel Inferno to confront him and has not been seen since. Add the fact that the devilish villain has already corrupted several Avengers, and Wong and his rag-tag group of mystical heroes look like they’re in serious trouble.

    With so many changes from last issue it could have been a struggle to keep things ticking but an admirable job was done by all concerned from artist to writing team. Keep it up, guys.

    Now, this is more like it. With all of the overblown setup and tying into Secret Empire out of the way, Doctor Strange: Damnation #2 is able to play to writer Nick Spencer’s strength: his ability to write fun banter for a motley crew of B-list characters. In this case, it is the ragtag team of mystically inclined heroes that Wong has assembled to rescue Doctor Strange from Mephisto in the hell-on-Earth that Las Vegas has become. The professional rivalry between Blade the vampire hunter and Elsa Bloodstone the monster hunter may deserve to be explored in an entire miniseries of its own.

    This book continues to feel a bit like a wasted potential. Change in artist and a shift in the flow of the plot hold the book back. Although, if you’re a fan of the Midnight Sons or just unconventional, weird teams in general, there’s a lot of fun to be had.

    You gotta respect a comic that spends its time developing its characters, but this issue needed to push the needle further than it does. As it stands there are some good character moments, but overall you’ll be wishing for more and story.
