    The issue opens with a flashback of Doctor Strange on the brink of death, having just stopped Baron Mordo from destroying the world. In order to save his life, Stephen and Wong transfer all of Doctor Strange's wounds and pain to a creature hidden in the cellar. Strange confides in Wong that they cannot continue to divert his pain to another. Read Full Review

    This is one of the best series from Marvel and a fantastic conclusion to such an amazing story arc. I’m excited to see more Doctor Strange and how these events have changed him for the better or worse. Read Full Review

    Doctor Strange #10 puts a bombastic cap on the title's first arc and sets up for very interesting things down the line. Read Full Review

    ComicList - Eric Bradach Aug 4, 2016

    As said before, people should be more than thrilled that this series isn't on the chopping block once "Civil War II" is concluded. Jason Aaron clearly has a passion for not just this character, but the themes that tag along with him. Building the scales to a degree that seem monumental. Chris Bachalo's work only adds to that passion, creating atmosphere and tone that only escalate the stakes. Not subsuming to the current events that the rest of the Marvel Universe is entrenched in, has allowed this creative team to add lure and more importantly, legacy to the Sorcerer Supreme.

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 4, 2016

    While still being a conclusion to ‘LAST DAYS OF MAGIC', Doctor Strange #10 still leaves you with some answers moving forward. The status quo for the Sorcerer Supreme has definitely been shaken along with the state of the magic world as a whole. If this was their intention from the start, then surely it will be welcomed for whatever comes next. Read Full Review

    Doctor Strange #10 is a wonderful conclusion to the exciting “Last Days Of Magic” arc; twists and turns accompanied by breathtaking art make this a fun, easy read for both dedicated fans and new readers. At the ten issue mark, it's safe to say this series is going in the right direction and forging all new territory for the characters. Now is the time to pick this series up and absorb it as the Marvel Studios movie is right around the corner. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Richard Bishop Aug 11, 2016

    Much as I hate to say it, this is a bit of an underwhelming end to this storyline. The creature in the basement has far more impact on the fight than Stephen does, making the victory over the Lord Imperator a little hollow for the hero. As mentioned above, the subplots concerning Stephen's allies are given short-shrift in this book, making those characters seem far less important than they had been throughout the rest of the storyline. On the plus side, Chris Bachalo's rendering of the creature in the basement is otherworldly and creepy, and the dialogue from Jason Aaron is very well done. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Chase Magnett Aug 6, 2016

    And so Doctor Strange #10 is an effective entertainment. The monsters are scary and the action is enjoyable enough. It lacks in impact in spite of the many consequences explained at its conclusion. Everything is terrible, but it rests on the foundation of a story that never gives you very many reasons to care. Reading this comic might be a fine way to spend a little time, but it will flicker out of your skull as quickly as it entered. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 8, 2016

    The finale of "The Last Days of Magic" ends less like an awesome Doug Henning spectacle of fireworks and bejeweled albino beasts, and more like a creepy David Blaine card trick on the street that makes you feel cheated. There really are no great developments in this issue that required a four-issue build-up, and the conclusion casts Doctor Strange in a less sympathetic light than before. This comic's saving grace is its artwork, which is sort of like an ethereal graffiti that is rich in texture. That alone is not worth the cover price. Read Full Review

    I loved this issue for the art alone. Doctor Strange and Chris Bachalo are a wonderful match. The conclusion to "Last Days of Magic" left me satisfied. The impact that Strange has had on the world and magic itself is shown. A villain that is sure to become a main stay in the future of Doctor Strange is born (perhaps two?). Lastly a supporting character is introduced.If you are new to the character of Doctor Strange then this run would be a great starting point.

    An exciting conclusion that would have benefited from a few extra pages because it feels a bit condensed. I want a big splash page where Strange combines with this basement monster and smashes Empirikul into the ground, plus a couple panels don't communicate very clearly.

    Great series but I found the final issue to this arch underwhelming.
