Up next...Doctor Strange!

So with all of the recent activity with comic books on the corporate level, we here at Random Longbox headquarters decided we should figure out what it all means to you...the average Random Longbox reader.

You got Disney buying Marvel Comics...Warner Brothers reorganizing DC Comics...whose to know where we stand?

With that in mind, the Randomizer just returned from a three day retreat with the lawyers that we have on staff, determined to get to the bottom of it all to keep you informed.

Our conclusion?

We're just as in the dark as anybody else. We'll still be posting reviews, feeling our way through the hazy, gray fog of the fair use doctrine. Besides, our website is small enough not to be noticed by the Empire, which is advantageous for everbody since our readers are anxious to avoid attracting attention to themselves.

Now I know what you're thinking...aren't I afraid that the Empire is going to find out about this little website and shut me down?

Well I've just made a deal that will keep the Empire out of here forever.

Oops...did I just borrow some dialogue from The Empire Strikes Back? We should probably just get on with it and get the Randomizer to pick the next book for us to review, as it looks like it's going to need to take a trip out to Skywalker Ranch and apologize to Mr. Lucas in person.

...and that book is Doctor Strange #26 from December 1977, published by Marvel Comics.

So if our head wasn't spinning enough trying to understand U.S. Copyright Law, we now have to delve headfirst into a 1970's Doctor Strange comic?

The Randomizer has a cruel sense of humor.

Join me in a day or two for the review as we take a trip with Stephen Strange through the astral plane, across dimensions, all while using as many alliterative, idiosyncratic colloquialisms as possible.
