    Comicsverse - Ryan Ninesling Oct 19, 2016

    Despite some of the less inspired artistic choices, “The Night of Four Billion Nightmares”is another great issue in Doctor Strange's wonderfully weird new run. It continues to flesh out the Sorcerer Supreme's characterization with nuance, all while offering some memorable showdowns. Hopefully the excellence of the return of the rogues gallery will continue in the next issue, where Strange will face off against the Devil's daughter herself, Satana! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Oct 19, 2016

    This is a great piece of storytelling that flips the Halloween one-shot on its head in a way that would only work for Doctor Strange. The character feels vibrant and better than ever thanks to inventive ideas and great art. Read Full Review

    rmed with one of the weirdest cadre of foes in comics and a clever hook Doctor Strange #13 is another strong showing from a consistently strong solo title. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Michael Hale Oct 20, 2016

    While Wong and Zelma take a bit more of a backseat than some might prefer, and one half of the comic will please some more than others, what is present is a solid story that allows for some fantastic art and some great panel-work. Sadly, I wish there were more of what makes this comic great packed into this issue, but at least the character who appears at this comics end promises, if anything, loads more weirdness and strangeness to come in this runs future.

    Comics Bulletin - Lukas Schmitt Oct 23, 2016

    Aaron is cutting deep here into the character of Stephen Strange and how much the ruin of his hands has changed him on a fundamental level. For Strange to accept this reality would be to reject all of the changes he has made for decades. This, like no other moment in Jason Aaron's run on Doctor Strange, convinces me the story is in good hands. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 24, 2016

    Here's a filler issue to expand this story arc into a neat five- or six-issue trade paperback collection. This is the second time the series has clearly done it. I've about had it, this book is an absolute rip-off since you need read only two-thirds of the issues that are released. This comic book deserves a FU 5 because it always seems to be biding its time and I'm growing less interested in the potential payoff by the issue. Read Full Review

    Everyone smells blood in the aether and wants a piece of the doctor. Nightmare scares up this issue with a very sexy and fun nightmare. LOL. I really like how everyone sees how weak Dr. Strange is and does their best to be the one who ends him. I can't wait to see what the next villain is going to do. The art and coloring Bachalo, Fabela and Tartaglia are precisely what this comic needs. Overall a sharp issue and can't wait for the next edition.

    I will be honest I never loved Nightmare. The Freddy Kruger of the Marvel universe never seemed like much of a threat. This issue had me won over though. Seeing Stephan in a confused state stuck in his dreams seemed more thrilling then I would have guessed. This was a good installment in the rogues gallery returning to strike Doctor Strange while he is down. I can't wait to see what the team brings about next.

    Fun, creative issue. I'm enjoying this arc a lot more than Last Days of Magic actually, very imaginative storytelling with each issue seemingly focusing on a different member of the Doctor Strange rogues gallery. Bachalo's art is a win for me, very stylistic and colorful.
