Doctor Strange (1974) #7
date: March 1975
writer: Steve Englehart
artists: Gene Colan, John Romita
rating: 3.5 out of 5
Clea escapes the reborn Dormammu and Doctor Strange is in Umar's clutches. Clea whoops ass on Umar's disciples and Doctor Strange overcomes the G'Uranthic Guardian. Clea's father is revealed to be Orini, Umar's chief henchman.
Things are heating up. It seems Umar is playing Dormammu for a sap. Clea is showing herself to be quite capable. She and Doctor Strange are shaping up to be a great team. I'm still not sold on Gene Colan on art, even though I thought he was fantastic on Daredevil. It doesn't have the cosmic feel I think Doctor Strange needs.
