Checked out Essential Doctor Strange from the library and was inspired to draw him on a recent bus ride. No Ditko in this collection, but there was some Brunner and Colan. It included a Dracula crossover. Generally not great stuff, but not necessarily awful either. I find Steve Englehart's writing more and more difficult to tolerate as I get older. I think he has some cool ideas but at times he presents them in an awkward fashion.
