In this climactic concluding chapter, chaos reigns as New York City is plunged into darkness and terrifying mummies rise to wreak havoc on the streets. And in the center of it all, Osiris, has come to render judgment on Doctor Fate and the rest of mankind. But can even the combined might of two magic wielders be enough to defeat the God of Death?

    Sadly, I have been, more or less, waiting for this to get cancelled for a while. The series that I really enjoy never seem to make it. And Dr. Fate has only two more issues to run. I hope he gets Rebirth-ed. Read Full Review

    This was a great issue that cements Khalid's place in the DC Universe as Doctor Fate. If it had been the final issue, it would have served as a fine send off. Read Full Review

    Doctor Fate continues to be a series that I enjoy overall and I kind of feel like it can find itself a really good cult status in years to come and we'll see some sort of elaborate oversized library edition that will delight. In the here and now, it has that sense of winding down and that does take some of the energy out of it as you know we're getting to that point. But there is, in a way, a kind of rebirth that we get for Khalid here as it hits that final page and you can see how he's viewing the world in the right frame of mind. Levitz continues to do some solid stuff here with an interesting cast that Liew brings to life in a really great way. I'm hopeful that both of these creators have a lot more in store, whether together or apart, that engages like this series does. Read Full Review

    This is a good farewell issue that reminds us why the character is a strong one. Just don't expect a climax of fireworks, but one of shrug-worthy acceptance. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 21, 2016

    This issue of Doctor Fate is just another in the long line of issues where our title character doesn't do shit and to make things worse, the former Doctor Fate is just as useless here.  Really though, this is a story that just builds up to nothing and is a reminder of why I can't wait until this series is finally over.  It's........... It's just not good and I'm just not a fan of the art style either. Read Full Review
