    The 29th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was one of the most successful movies of 2022.

    The movie grossed over 800 million dollars worldwide and saw the return of Sam Raimi to the superhero genre.

    While most know George R.R Martin as the creator of the highly sucessfull and gritty fantasy novels 'A Song of Ice and Fire', which were adapted into HBO’s mega-hit TV series, Game of Thrones.

    He is also a huge fan of comic books and superhero movies and recently he shared a full review of the movie and praised director Sam Raimi.

    Geroge R.R Martin who is busy working on HBO Max 's four upcoming Game of Thrones spinoffs and also working on the final novel in the franchise took time to write a review for the movie on his blog.

    He revealed that he had fallen behind on watching movies due to his busy schedule and the pandemic but had a chance to see Doctor Strange 2 while he was in Paris.

    Sam Raimi has always been one of my favorite directors. And Dr. Strange has always been one of my favorite Marvel characters. And this version of Dr. Strange, slipping through portals into surreal dimensions full of floaty things and alternate realities, was the Doctor I fell in love with, way way way back when world was young (and so was I). They even gave us CLEA! I love Clea!

    Seeing this movie brought back a cherished memory, of the day I attended the world’s first comicon, in 1964 in Greenwich Village. I was fifteen years old. The whole con was held in one small room in some sort of union hall, with hucksters selling old comics from cardboard boxes along one wall, and the speakers at a podium in the front.

    Fabulous Flo Steinberg turned up.. and so did Steve Ditko. It might well have been the only comicon he ever attended… but I got to talk to him, and tell him how much I loved his art. Especially on Dr. Strange. Ditko was reserved, maybe a bit shy, but genial enough. He told me that Dr. Strange was his favorite as well. Yes, even more than Spider-Man .

    He’s still one of the best comic artists who ever picked up a pencil, in my not-so-humble opinion. Anyway… MULTIVERSE woke the sleeping Marvel fanboy in me, and that was a joy. So says a former member of the Merry Marvel Marching Society.

    While it will be a while before fans will be able to see the anticipated Jon Snow sequel series which will have Kit Harrington reprise his iconic role.

    Till then fans can revisit Westores by checking out the Game of Thrones prequel The House of the Dragon, which will stream on HBO Max on 21st August 2022.
