STRANGE (BIRTH)DAYS HAVE FOUND US

Yup... it's my birthday (again?!?) and while I don't have the available time to put into composing one of my usual extended-subject birthday posts (like this ROM Spaceknight birthday post [HERE] or this ROM revisited post [HERE] or this Philosophy of my Love of Comics post [HERE]), I do have this: A personal Birthday Surprise from the prime subject of this blog; Doctor Stephen Strange!

Those better not be "trick" candles where I keep blowing them out and they constantly reignite...

A slightly re-edited page from:
UNCANNY ORIGINS # 12 (1997)
Len Wein (writer) and Marc Campos (art)


Yes, I slightly re-edited the text (and an image) from the page... but hey, how many comics do you think there are with Doctor Strange whipping out a three-tier birthday cake from within the folds of his cloak of levitation?!

I may have some goodies for YOU - dear readers - in a day or so... (I'd have included it/them in this post, but it/they really deserves its/ their own post(s) ) consider it a Birthday Gift from ME to you.

But, until then... I'll just mellow out on my day to the words of Jim Morrison:

Strange days have found us
And through their strange hours
We linger alone
Bodies confused
Memories misused
As we run from the day
To a strange night of stone

Happy Birthday! This is the first one since I'm a regular visitor of your blog, though I'll never forget the day I found your ROM birthday post...it was a good ONE...day, post, character, writer, take your pick. :-)

Now if one of this week's goodies(s) is the ROM Mega Post, I can die happy. Metaphysically of course.
