Do you know what is handy for a comic book publisher? When a movie star poses with a comic book featuring the character they are playing.
No, not that one.
Yes, that one.
Well, ever since Benedict Cumberbatch walked into JHU Comic And Books in New York, demand for that comic, Doctor Strange: The Oath by Brian K Vaughan and Martin has rocketed.
The first issue was given away by stores last year as part of a Halloween ComicFest edition, and can be picked up very cheaply with the standard issue selling for up to $8, $15 for the B+W variant. But all the issues are shifting over $10.
Will this be the series to pick up before the movie? It is certainly one of the most well regarded…
