As well as having written for Marvel Comics in the recent past, I’ve been a Marvel Comics fan for as long as I can remember. My interest in their comic books has waned dramatically over the last couple of years, but I still have a soft spot for the company. One of my first memories of reading any kind of material was the first issue of Spider Man from Marvel UK in 1973. I was hooked, and the characters and stories became a huge part of my life for decades to come. This isn’t going to be a giant retrospective about Marvel Comics, but I couldn’t really start a review of Doctor Strange without a self-indulgent opening, right?
