Doctor Strange movie gets 1-shot manga prequel

Japan’s opening day for Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange is coming up surely, though much more slowly than ours, on January 27th. To promote the film’s release, Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine will be running a one-shot prequel manga titled ‘Doctor Strange: Episode 0’.

The original story, illustrated by 2014’s Tetsuya Chiba Excellent Rookie Award winner Haruichi, follows Stephen Strange before the accident that injured his hands, when he was still an exalted but arrogant neurosurgeon. Focusing on his troubles with coworkers and the treatment of his patients, the manga marks Haruichi’s professional debut, and will be published on November 22nd.
