Regarding Brother Voodoo, Doctor Voodoo and all things Mystic from Marvel...
Since I've dedicated this blog to covering Doctor Strange and his role as the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe I've decided that certain people, places and things will naturally have to be discussed and focused upon as well. If it's mystical and it's Marvel, we'll take a look at it here and examine it together.
The first character we'll branch out into is Brother Voodoo - who now calls himself 'Doctor Voodoo' and is acting as the 'Houngan Supreme' following Doctor Strange's recent decision to step down from his role as the Sorcerer Supreme. Since I don't like to phone anything in when research is concerned (or on anything, really) I'll be doing a lot of homework on this one. That includes reading a lot of new & recent Marvel, which I've been loathe to do for the last five years.
So this week we'll continue our look at Doctor Strange's early years in Strange Tales but we'll also be casting our inquisitive gaze upon Jericho Drumm, too. I had originally planned to just start with the new Doctor Voodoo, Avenger of the Supernatural. But now I've decided we'll go all the way back to Doctor Voodoo's beginning this week. I won't dwell as much on Drumm as I do Strange here but I won't just gloss over his history either. Brother Voodoo has always been a fun and interesting character who I've always liked seeing pop up in the Marvel Universe over the last three decades and the character is worthy of a bit of study. I won't be reviewing every Brother Voodoo appearance but I will do a lengthy 'behind the scenes' on him as I did here for Doctor Strange and we'll take a lengthy gander at the character's progression through the years and his place in the Marvel Universe.
So Monday we'll get back to Strange Tales, with #111, and on Tuesday we'll get our first Brother Voodoo post. Wednesday we'll have another Strange Tales review and on Thursday I'll take a look at Marvel's version of voodoo compared to the real thing and also how Marvel voodoo plays against Marvel magic. I'm pretty excited and I hope you folks are as well! Then on Friday I'll post a review of Doctor Voodoo, Avenger of the Supernatural - which I liked!
