The Demon Rider takes center stage in the third issue of the fun new Marvel series, Doctor Strange and The Sorcerers Supreme. Merlin imprisoned a bunch of dark-magic-practicing bad guys in his quarters, and the unlikely team stumble upon them in search for weapons and a way to defeat The Forgotten.
What did we learn from Issue #3? Demon Rider wants rid of the Spirit of Vengeance and seeks help from… Merlin? The Forgotten isn’t one being, it’s all of the bad guys that Merlin locked up. This issue was complimented by monologue from Doctor Strange himself, and felt more like a conversation than anything else.
We’re glad this series is now spending more time with the team to flesh out the members. Kushala, the Demon Rider, was definitely a good start. Her story is fairly simple and is fed to us in basic terms, but it just works. The character building didn’t take long at all, but gave us a good sense of who she is as a person and how she looks at the world.
There’s a few moments that allow the artist Javier Rodriquez to do something special, and he provided the goods when the time came. The widespread page that showed Merlin’s basement was incredible, and felt like something out of the Doctor Strange movie! Overall, this comic makes me want to keep reading this series to see what happens, so it’s done its job.
