    So ends Jason Aaron's run. Doctor Stephen Strange has depended on Wong for so long that I wonder how he will get by without his most trusted companion. Due to the assistance of his new apprentice, Zelma Stanton, however, the situation is far from Hopeless. Read Full Review

    Issue #20 may mark the end of Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo's run, but it sure doesn't feel like a finale. If anything, the issue highlights the many unique aspects that made this series so consistently entertaining. It's inventive, character driven, and more than a little weird. Read Full Review

    This is a very satisfying conclusion to the story being told in the run so far with Jason Aaron, Chris Bachalo, and Kevin Knowlan. The two artist work great together to represent two different worlds of the same tale with great success. The tale has all been to set up the future of Doctor Strange and what came come to us in the future in a great way by Aaron. The use of color and detail is done in a beautiful way. There is a lot of effort put into this title and it shows.

    Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo's run on "Doctor Strange" ends here in an issue that seems to bring things full circle. I like the decision to make Zelda the focus here as she moves on to a new role in this adventure. There is a sense of a new start even as things end. This is the longest I have ever read a Doctor Strange book, and it was at its best when it was at its weirdest. I'm excited to see where Bachalo turns up next, as he delivered a bizarre set of visuals that looked totally awesome and unique. It was a good run.

    Wong was the Dr's right hand man. And now things have changed. I love to see where this goes and I hope it goes in the right direction. The art of the team was phenomenal. The only thing is I expected more from the other dimension. I wanted more color. Hopefully the new writers keep up the work.

    To me, Aaron's run went out with a whimper.

    An abysmal conclusion that's not a surprise considering the duo were the absolute worst team to write Doctor Strange ever. To be fair the first 3 issues showed great promise, but then they completely and totally lost. So the Empirickul is still in the basement? What happened to their city sized ships and all the androids? Oh wait explanations for those sorts of things only happen in a competently written story. I guess any explanation for how they destroyed all magic was rendered unnecessary as the whole story arc fell apart culminating in this complete joke of a last issue. Ironically as a stand alone issue, it's ok. The problem is it was marketed as the issues where all the loose strings would be tied together redeeming the entire story arc, but nope. So we are left in a Marvel world where the only one whose powers seem to be affected by the end of magic is Doctor Strange. Everyone else seems at full power.Even the Beast of the X-men is competently using magic without consequence. His fellow x-person Magic just had an epic tale all about extremely powerful magic spanning many dimensions. I Yeah I know Aaron didn't write the other books, but the fact that no one else followed the lead is a good indication Marvel realized they made a huge mistake. If that's true, I hope they ditch his changes soon and return to normal for Doctor Strange after the secret empire storyline winds up. If not, it will likely be cancelled as its sales fell through the floor after the first few issues, and haven't shown any signs of recovery. Bachalo's artwork was repetitive and unoriginal throughout. That was kind of a surprise considering how well he does the X-men.
