    Doctor Fate continues to be a series that I'm thoroughly enjoying for its kind of on the fringes approach and the way we're getting something beyond the usual for it in terms of pacing and characters. I want more of just the characters/family/friends in normal settings to explore as we get some good stuff with that in the backup and in previous issues as Levitz has definitely been working that side well. I like the obvious Fate related pieces but it's just felt a little more drawn out and unfocused than it should be, and in turn missing out on some of the bigger strengths of the book. Inaki Miranda nails the artwork in this installment perfectly and I'm hopeful they return for another guest spot in the future. A solid return to the book after the break that it's had and it has me excited to see what's next for Khalid and everyone else. Read Full Review

    Doctor Fate is a pleasant surprise, instilling interesting ideas about magic and building the character well, and it even contains a backup that focuses on race many of us could learn from. Read Full Review

    Doctor Fate is weird this issue in that we have two separate stories filling the pages of this installment and the problem with that is....... I like both for separate reasons.  Yeah, I would have liked a book I could fully get behind, but maybe this is the start of this series correcting itself before it ultimately ends........ somewhere in the next few months....... who knows when though.  I just hope that until it does I continue finding things I like about this series because it's been really hard to find anything throughout its run.   Read Full Review
