Speculation Corner: Doctor Strange: The Oath

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.

Speculation Corner: Doctor Strange: The Oath

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 collected version is currently sold out at Amazon, while the five issue set has sold on Ebay for $50.

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…

Thanks to Aaron for a typo check.
