Doctor Strange #6 Gets a Marvel Knights Variant by Chris Bachalo

Poor TBA can never catch a break! The superstar artist who is constantly being announced for Marvel books only to be replaced at the last minute has lost another two variant covers, originally solicited for Doctor Strange #6 in Marvel's August solicitations.

Eagle-eyed readers will also note that the new covers have a Marvel Knights 20th Anniversary Logo, which isn't surprising considering they are Marvel Knights 20th variants. But it does beg the question: could Doctor Strange be part of Marvel's potential plans for a new Marvel Knights imprint following the reimagined mini-series led by superstar writer Donny Cates?

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
