    Comicosity - Aaron Long Oct 9, 2016

    Doctor Strange is one of the best superhero comics available today. Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo have done a great job elevating this character to not just an A-list power threat, but an A-list character. There is a depth to Strange and his growing cast of supporting characters that I've never read in the past and I am VERY excited for this arc. Read Full Review

    ‘Blood in The Aether' leads us on another adventure to that will keep us at the edge of our seats. Doctor Strange is not the same man we left off with, neither is this world either. Some aim to rebuild, to adjust, to take advantage of the state things have been left in. It feels like a fight for the soul of magic now, and that is what will determine the future of it as well.

    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good Oct 11, 2016

    This is a series that has solidified Strange as a man as well as a magician. I fully believe that this current run will be the new measuring stick that is used to judge Doc Strange for decades. The rules of Stephen Strange are being rewritten as we speak and it's one hell of a thrill ride. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 10, 2016

    Some nice, chunky artwork and some appearances by Ditko-era characters doesn't absolve me of the feeling that we've been cheated. Looks like the two Doctor Strange comics that came out in the month of September were meaningless, since the post-Imperikul story begins here. There are some cool elements of Doctor Strange's new unmagical condition, but not enough to mask my distaste. Maybe the rest of this arc will prove my annoyance to be unfounded. Read Full Review

    The last story arc that was done for Doctor Strange helped put limits on what he was capable of. It became one of my favorite titles. This issue starts a new chapter and I think it should be interesting. Now that they know Strange has limits to his power all his former enemies are returning to hit him while he is down. Bachalo's style is a perfect fit for the title I think. Aaron's writing has some fun humor and character. This is another great place to jump on board if you have not read the title yet.

    You want action??? Blam by the third page action. You want wittiness. BLAM! Right there! You want Mcgyver-esque action sequences BLAM!!!! Dr. Strange is back and he's pretty terrific. The story of Aaron is on point and the art of Bachalo and the inking team is on target for such a great comic. And can we talk about this cover and the mix of color by Bachalo and Townsend???? Absolutely beautiful. Dr. Strange is probably one of the best titles out there right now.
