DOCTOR STRANGE (1974) (#1-81) (MARVEL) (DR. STRANGE) #18 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Doctor Strange (1974) #18
"The Dream is Dead!" is written by Steve Englehart with art by Gene Colan and Tom Palmer. Doctor Strange and his lovely companion Clea continue their journeys through time, saying farewell to Sir Francis Bacon, the philosopher and ideological father of America, and hello to inventor and diplomat Benjamin Franklin, who travels by ship from London in 1775. Their quest is to stop the evil machinations of the mysterious sorcerer named Stygyro who seems bent on altering history so that the United States of America will never come to be.

On their rough sea voyage from England to the colonies – who even now stand on the brink of Revolution – the Sorcerer Supreme, Clea and Ben Franklin encounter a monstrous sea serpent seemingly commanded by Stygyro. After its attack is thwarted, the trio quite inexplicably find themselves alone on the boat and the crew mysteriously gone. Then Stygyro launches his most heinous attack–opening a gaping hole in the ocean and exposing lost Atlantis beneath. After stopping the ship from falling in, Doctor Strange rushes to the ruins of the underwater city to engage once again the sea-serpent who has merged with Stygyro. But while he battles for their lives against this abomination, what are Ben Franklin and Clea up to on the ship while all alone?
