    Comicosity - Aaron Long Nov 16, 2016

    Doctor Strange #14 is exactly what I want from a Doc Strange comic. There is an unexpected lightness here, but it isn't all a big joke – the stakes are still ridiculously high for the Doc right now and his world is a complete mess. I've never been as entertained by this character as I am right now, and Aaron and Bachalo have my full attention for as long as they keep kicking ass like they are right now. Read Full Review

    It's fertile ground for writer Jason Aaron and artist Chris Bachalo (working here with five inkers), and it's a lot of fun for the reader - if you have the stomach for it. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 16, 2016

    This issue is fun. Doctor Strange is a character that can take you to new places and this story does so and then some. Who needs the Magic Schoolbus when you have Doctor Strange showing us the wonders of the G.I. tract? Read Full Review

    There's no rest for the Sorcerer Supreme. That much is clear as day when by the end of Doctor Strange #14 you come to understand that things can only get worse as he has quite the persistent/driven rogue gallery. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Nov 17, 2016

    Featuring a motley assortment of demonic miscreants, a great use of astral projection/streaking and a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory-esque ride through the intestines, the issue's lack of substance is more than made up for by its consistently entertaining vibe. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 21, 2016

    Ultimately, Doctor Strange is taking a bit of a breather after its dynamic opening issues, and that's okay " no comic should be expected to be pushing with that level of intensity month in and month out, because it'll burn out both the readers and the creative team. Aaron and Bachalo's latest arc is a screwy one, with the hell-diner setting being particularly kooky and weird, but that's been a goal of many of Aaron's previous superhero works " to push characters beyond their usual limitations and to take them into undiscovered territory. Given the talents of this creative team, Doctor Strange #14 proves to be yet another successful foray for the Sorcerer Supreme. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Deviator77 Nov 21, 2016

    This series has just about everything one could ask for in a comic book about magic. It has astral projection, trippy nightmares and hellscapes, oddball characters, spells, magical artifacts, demons and on and on. This has been the best issue of the current arc because it wasn't afraid to embrace the silly wackiness of magical interactions. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 21, 2016

    A fun little romp through a conceptual stylish Hell that reads a bit too quickly for my liking. You will want to pore over the lushly and grossly illustrated pages, however, and there are lots of funny moments to hold your interest. This was perhaps the singularly most entertaining issue in the entire series, even if it didn't bring us demonstrably closer to the end game face-off with Baron Mordo. Read Full Review

    I loved this issue since Aaron went ahead and went as crazy as he could. Strange has to fight Hell bacon is his own stomach. That is just having some fun with the character. The other great things about this is using villains that you don't see a whole lot of. I was never big on Pandemonium, but he was a bit more interesting in this. The Blood in the Aether story has been a great look back at the career of Doctor Strange and I am excited to see what directions it goes next.

    Lots of this was excellent. I was tempted to give it a 9. Why is Satana blonde?
