    Jason Aaron grew up in a small town in Alabama His cousin, Gustav Hasford, who wrote the semi autobiographical novel The Short Timers, on which the feature film Full Metal Jacket was based, was a large influence on Aaron Aaron decided he wanted to write comics as a child, and though his father was skeptical when Aaron informed him of this aspiration, his mother took Aaron to drug stores, where he would purchase books from spinner racks, some of which he still owns today.Aaron s career in comics began in 2001 when he won a Marvel Comics talent search contest with an eight page Wolverine back up story script The story, which was published in Wolverine 175 June 2002 , gave him the opportunity to pitch subsequent ideas to editors.In 2006, Aaron made a blind submission to DC Vertigo, who published his first major work, the Vietnam War story The Other Side which was nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Miniseries, and which Aaron regards as the second time he broke into the industry.Following this, Vertigo asked him to pitch other ideas, which led to the series Scalped, a creator owned series set on the fictional Prairie Rose Indian Reservation and published by DC Vertigo.In 2007, Aaron wrote Ripclaw Pilot Season for Top Cow Productions Later that year, Marvel editor Axel Alonso, who was impressed by The Other Side and Scalped, hired Aaron to write issues of Wolverine, Black Panther and eventually, an extended run on Ghost Rider that began in April 2008 His continued work on Black Panther also included a tie in to the company wide crossover storyline along with a Secret Invasion with David Lapham in 2009.In January 2008, he signed an exclusive contract with Marvel, though it would not affect his work on Scalped Later that July, he wrote the Penguin issue of The Joker s Asylum.After a 4 issue stint on Wolverine in 2007, Aaron returned to the character with the ongoing series Wolverine Weapon X, launched to coincide with the feature film X Men Origins Wolverine Aaron commented, With Wolverine Weapon X we ll be trying to mix things up like that from arc to arc, so the first arc is a typical sort of black ops story but the second arc will jump right into the middle of a completely different genre, In 2010, the series was relaunched once again as simply Wolverine He followed this with his current run on Thor God of Thunder.

    There's just something deeply disturbing to me about the whole magic has a price thing that's happening here. It grosses me out, if I'm being honest.I mean, yeaha price seems like an ok idea. Ooooh! Make is so it's not just some cosmic freebie! Yeah!But the reality of this version is justewWhen I think of Doctor Strange and the other mystics in the MU performing magic, my mind doesn't automatically jump to the sacrifice of bunnies.Sure, magic could be presented as being more difficult to wield, [...]

    What side are you on?If you’re like Superman, you hate pesky Magic and would prefer to fight anything else, short of a kryptonite enema administered by Lex Luthor.If you’re Dr. Strange and the rest of the Magic-induced characters, then a raging science guy from another plane of reality bent on eliminating magic would make you think that science is evil, even after years of putting up with Tony Stark.In this volume, the conclusion to the storyline started in the previous collection, we find D [...]

    I previously opined that, while I love ol’ Doc Strange, he’s a tough character to build an ongoing series around. Messrs. Aaron and Bachalo did an admirable job with the opening salvo of their attempt, but the continuation of that stellar start here in volume two leaves something to be desired. Is it a serviceably solid story of the Sorcerer Supreme’s scintillating struggle against admirably amoral adversaries? Sure. (Do I take entirely too much joy in parroting Stan Lee? Possibly.)But, th [...]

    The Empirikul have purged the other dimensions of magic - now it’s the Marvel Universe’s turn! With the Sorcerer Supreme already weakened, Doctor Strange faces an uphill battle to save magic from dying - but he’s not alone. The final battle between magic and science is about to begin… NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! After such a strong first volume, it’s so disappointing to see Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo dropping the ball with Doctor Strange, Volume 2: The Last Days of Magic. The con [...]

    All characterization from the book has now been dropped in favor of one big war with the Emperikul. The first volume had a great buildup. Now when the Emperikul show up magic and science are so generic, they are interchangeable. If the bad guys didn't have big eyeball heads I wouldn't even know who to root for. The bad guy's parents were sacrificed on a world full of magic so he uses "science" to destroy magic in every dimension. *Yawn* As it happens with a lot of Chris Bachalo's art nowadays, I [...]

    The first volume of Doctor Strange by Jason Aaron was brilliant. Sad to say, the second one is a dud.First of all, the premise just doesn't work. There are the Empirikul, the evil guys that came to destroy magic with science? Only their science is basically just magic, too, and Doc's magic is just punching? I mean, at more than one point he literally just punched the evil guy in the face with magic.And the whole story is honestly just dull. It's your generic superhero comic, where the bad guy co [...]

    The Empirikul have crossed dimensions to eliminate magic and all the magic users.The Last Days of Magic is about the Empirikul. Their leader had his life and family destroyed by magicand now he vows to eliminate all magic everywhere. With some better storytelling I could feel for the Empirikul, but it's near impossible to side with the aggressors as they torture long standing heroes like Doctor Strange, Scarlet Witch, and Magik. As is its just a fairly straightforward mission to defeat the enemy [...]

    Not a huge fan of the death of magic storyline, but there's nothing actually wrong with it. I loved all of the snippets of random magic and short scenes with other MU magic users, though.

    After the glory that was volume one, this second volume was such a huge disappointment. After a really interesting set-up, Jason Aaron turned in a story that was pretty much just a rehash of the God Butcher story he did in Thor a while back. I was SO invested in volume one that I was sincerely gutted by this warmed over variant. There were also a couple of major plot holes. The first was our group of de-magicked magicians getting stuck somewhere (trying not to do the spoiler thing but it's trick [...]

    Really wish there was someone else in art for this. The story idea is kinda cool, almost makes the story arc into a mini event. But just Bachalo is

    Not as good as the first volume but I still liked it.

    Robert
    How does that Kevin Sorbo gif go again? Oh, yeahDISAPPOINTED.Once again I'm confronted with a Marvel title replete with good ideas, but stumbling horrendously in execution.Aaron frankly seems to try to be recycling the plot of Thor: The God Butcher but what worked there thanks to the high-flying hero and amazing Esad Ribic art falls desperately flat in this overcrowded volume. I never bought "Empirikul" as a Big Bad, and the Deus Ex Basementica ending was lame as (insert expletive of your choice [...]

    Honestly had a strong dislike for the art. The story had potential but just strange.

    Matthew
    Pure awesome. Enough said.5 out of 5 stars.

    They've crossed the dimensions, purging each of all sorcery. Now the Empirikul are here. They are killing magic. They are unstoppable. What is our weakened Sorcerer Supreme to do?The only person more magical than Stephen Strange might be Jason Aaron. The dude can flat out write. While I think this is a minor step down from Volume 1, I don't think that's much of a slight considering that Vol. 1 is one of the better arcs I've read from Marvel in years. The supporting cast in this is great, there a [...]

    Why does Bachalo do his own color? he is terrible at is. its lazy and sloppy. It sucks because I really like his pencil/ink work but he ruins his own panels with crap coloring. Anyways I liked the story of the last days of magic, Aaron does a good job. Empirikul is some magic hating science alien(?) that vows to destroy all magic and pretty much succeeds and also kicks the doctor's ass. Strange has to go and dig up old artifacts to drain the magic and that doesn't really cut the mustard really. [...]

    The first volume of Aaron's Doctor Strange was amazing. This one is just OK. What the heck?!Humor. Gone. Characterization. Gone. Romantic subplots. Gone. Interesting narrative structure. Gone. We still get the epic story, but what was previously an ominous buildup is now just a big, long fight against an omnipotent being. And, it's got all the usual problems with that plot — meaning that the adversary is unstoppable until the plot calls for him not to be anymore. (We also get the overused her [...]

    The conclusion to the fight against the Empirikul was every bit as epic as expected. And now that that's over, everything should be normal again, right?I like Aaron's version of Dr. Strange. His Sorceror Supreme lives a decidedly different life from the rest of humanity. Magic skews the vision and claims a high price. In Aaron's version, the magicians all know each other, so we get folks like Brother Voodoo and Shaman dropping by, or hanging out at the bar together. The supporting cast is intere [...]

    What a dud. Apparently there's a huge magic vs. science war happening in this series that just plops out of nowhere with science-mongers being the Empirikul I see what you did there; it's not funny. I have a really time hard giving a shit about magic, even with the terribly-drawn Harry Potter reference snuck in there. I mean isn't magic just science we don't understand yet? Either way, Strange is a little hard to care about and the narration (which I think is him as a over-voice) is a snoozef [...]

    Magic is dying, magic is dying everywhere, everywhere in the world the magic is dying, all the magicians lost their magic and so the magic is dying, magic is dead but there's still magic to be found in the world, we need to find the dying magic, I miss magic, I miss doing magical stuff, magic has a price, and we all need to fight for it we finally won the battle for magic, so why is the magic still dead?

    Eon Nova
    The scientist villain and his android/clones and wolves are boring me at this point. But the search for magic energy is fun. The dark thing in the cellar is interesting. I could of been more into the background scenes of Stephen's magical allies, but the art styles were boring.

    Cecillie
    I think I finally understand why I like reading this so much! The art style has kind of a Hell Boy vibe to it, which is just absolutely gorgeous. It just really works for this type of story!

    Vijetha
    By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth, Lord Imperator's plan to kill the Socerers Supreme of the World "to end Magic" felt a little silly. Also, science save us. Really!? Science vs Magic?

    Craig
    The best parts of this were the Chris Bachalo-drawn issues. Not as good as the first volume--as I read on, I started to feel like I'd read this all before. In fact, the storyline is very similar to Aaron's first outing on Thor, with a seemingly unstoppable villain taking down everything out of a misplaced sense of vengeance. It's not exactly the same, but the parallels are certainly there. Really didn't care for the last part of this volume, a weird mix-up of a bunch of Marvel's magical characte [...]

    Liz
    Not as good as the first volume.

    Felicia
    I love the back stories of the magicians, especially El Medicio Mistico.

    Chris Lemmerman
    [Read as single issues]Doctor Strange kicks it into high gear as the Empirikul descend on our dimension intent on destroying all magic, starting with the Sorcerer Supreme.The fact that the Empirikul aren't even the biggest threat here says something about Jason Aaron's ambition for this series, using one long-form story to instead unleash another menace that will continue to threaten Strange for the rest of the series, while still having a satisfying conclusion to the Empirikul story and upsetti [...]

    Tracey
    Shit has really hit the fan in this volume for Doctor Strange. The Empirikul have seemingly killed all magic and now Strange has to try and find any hidden magic in the most dangerous places on Earth. And the monster in the basement has finally gotten loose. Honestly, it's scarier than any of the Empirikul. That thing is definitely going to be an ongoing problem for Strange and anyone that comes across it. I feel that the art has improved tremendously from the first volume. But that's maybe beca [...]

    Robert
    Strong continuation. Backstory laid in without interrupting the main tale, side charterers developed without detracting from the titular hero. All in all, everything an ongoing comic should be.

    Starfire
    Once again, I really loved the writing in this instalment, but found the artwork a bit hit and miss.Looking forward to reading more Doc Strange in future.
