  Waaaaaay too long for a golden age story.

  This story was all over the place.

  Characters are introduced by the bucket load throughout this lengthy exercise in Attention Deficit Disorder, and then promptly forgotten about in mid-plot. (e.g. the mysterious "Togo.") Strange spends his time alternately beating the stuffing out of anything and everything stupid or unfortunate enough to get in his way -- gorillas, sharks, octopi, passing strangers, etc. -- and pulling the most insane deus ex machinas out from his manly posterior. Still... this had a lot of energy and enthusiasm, if nothing else. Three stars, just for the sheer, breathless insanity of it all.

  This was horrible... way to long, and made no sense. It was like 15 comics all mashed together.

  That was utterly exhausting.

  Well, I give them "chutzpah" points for this story if nothing else. Creators at the time were trying anything and everything to dazzle their audience, so it was no surprise to me that this story attempted all that it could. However, for all his showboating and emulating Superman, Strange sure did take a long time in dispatching the Phantom.

3 stars; 1 star story, but add one star for living up to the anthology name (probably the only time for the entire run of the character), and another star for the roller-coaster ride.

  The story careens from one random encounter to another with a breakneck pace. There is always some stranger or other who shows up just when Doc needs help the most. Every animal in the world appears to hate his very presence. Snakes, sharks, octopi, tigers... At one point, I thought to myself that he hadn't battled a gorilla yet and, sure enough, on the next page, said gorilla appears to fight our hero. And I loved it! Not quite as super as Superman, but more super than Doc Savage. I'd heard good things about this publisher and I'm looking forward to more.
