Englehart, Stern, etc. of course. Not Bendis. [/QUOTE]What about Doctor Strange?
They did some fine with with cosmology, but their magic was just point and click magic, by fiat. It did not work for me.
Vaughn, on the other hand, told the kind of Doctor Strange story I want to see more of going forward, with Marcos Martin on pencils. I'm not really sure that was the kind of take on magic I wanted to see, but he made it function in the story by setting a few hard and fast rules, using some interesting real world 'mythology' (gun that killed Hitler), and then focusing on character.
It's not my preferred take on magic per se, but the character work was so on point I can't hate.
