We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Proposed Title:||Doctor Strange: The Vampire Verses.|
|Collecting 6 Issues:||Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme (1988) #10, 14-18.|
|Covers: (click to enlarge)|
I ran across this while making a list, and thought it looked pretty cool. Considering the popularity of vampires these days, it seems like this would be a good time to collect this story into trade. This five part story debuted in February of 1990, just after a three part Acts of Vengeance tie-in, and brings vampires back into the Marvel Universe (they were all destroyed by a spell from the good Doctor, years before, in a story that's been collected in Doctor Strange vs. Dracula: The Montesi Formula).
Just before Acts though, issue 10 featured Morbius, the Living Vampire, and although not marked as part of The Vampire Verses, I wonder if it would fit in the collection, or if it has any bearing on this story. It might be cool to add it as an "easter egg," but at the end, and with some kind of buffer page, explaining that this is a bonus tale for the TPB.
For the cover I'd use issue #14 or #16. Probably #16, because Baron Blood is a sure sign that vampires are involved, and it's a more dynamic cover than #14.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
