Re: Doctor Strange chronology

Ahhh... of course... the FUTURE tense. Damn it all. OK. So basically, like everything in the MU this is ALL going down at the same time: Blood and Thunder, Seige of Darkness, and Starblast. So what I can see are three hitch-points: 1) Warlock's comment in Quasar 54 2) Warlock and Surfer visit Strang...

Re: Doctor Strange chronology

Waitaminute... if the problem is that in Quasar 54, (a Starblast issue,) he mentions Thor's madness... then that is perfectly FINE, since Blood and Thunder comes BEFORE Starblast. That way no matter what tense he is speaking it could be accurate: 1) If Quasar spoke of Thor's madness in the past tens...

Re: Doctor Strange chronology

Starblast was one of Marvel's all-time worst organized crossovers. The thing was just a mess. (I actually remember the troubles that readers were complaining about back then - when I was working in a comic shoppe. One of the reasons I just didn't care to read it at the time.) Perhaps, Thor's madness...

Re: Doctor Strange chronology

Instead of adding yet another UPDATE EDIT to my previous post, please pardon me if I just toss in a new one. OK. Silver Surfer is in Blood and Thunder (his issues # 86, 87, 88). In issue 87, Surfer and Warlock go to Dr Strange's Sanctum. It is intact and Strange is still Sorcerer Supreme. In Silver ...

Re: Doctor Strange chronology

Was just doing some research online and EVERY source I can find list Blood and Thunder as coming before Siege of Darkness. Then comes Phalanx Covenant and THEN comes Starblast. Is there some reason that this can not be? The lists and publishing data put INFINITY CRUSADE as occurring just before Bloo...

Re: Doctor Strange chronology

In Silver Surfer 87, Surfer & Warlock go to Doctor Strange's Sanctum and it is intact and he is still Sorcerer Supreme. Definitely BEFORE DRSTR3 60. No way for Blood & Thunder to be before DRSTR3 60. (Maybe in the moments right BEFORE # 60, as the span between DRSTR3 59 and #60 is the last possible ...

Re: Doctor Strange chronology

I understand what you're saying. Truly. But when reading the events of the Seige crossover up to that point, Doc is totally immersed in absolute chaos. Even in times of calm, when others have come to Strange for aid, he might be home and just not help them (obviously for editorial reasons, so that t...

Re: Doctor Strange chronology

I just read the many crossover issues of SIEGE OF DARKNESS that crossed over between the events from DRSTR3 60 up until after DRSTR3 61 and there is simply NO time for Strange to aid NOVA at all during the bulk of the time he is engaged therein. As soon as he destroys his Sanctum, he goes off with t...

Re: Doctor Strange chronology

The other items Paul Borcier mention are indeed BLOOD and THUNDER issues and as such were perfectly fine in their original positions. They would have to occur BEFORE DRSTR3 # 61, since Strange is still a powerful Sorcerer Supreme in those issues (despite being easily knocked unconscious by a bonk to...

Re: Doctor Strange chronology

For continuities sake, the events of Secret Defenders needs to be happening some time directly AFTER the destruction of the Sanctum in Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme # 61, but NOT before the LAST PAGES of # 62. You see, it seems there are a few items of contention here that, if you'll permit me to...
