This publication is also known as: Doctor Strange (vol. 2) #1; Doctor Strange (vol 3) #1; Doctor Strange: The Flight of Bones #1 or Doctor Strange (vol. 4) #1. This is the first issue of a 4-issue mini-series featuring Doctor Strange. The cover logo for this series is clearly "Doctor Strange: The Flight of Bones." However, the internal indicia identifies the series as "Doctor Strange (vol. 2)." The identification of this as "volume 2" is peculiar because there are clearly two previous Doctor Strange series published by Marvel, one which began in 1968 (when Strange Tales transitioned to Doctor Strange with issue #169) and the other which began in 1974.
