    It was a weird, funny, and action-packed tale. It shows a lot of promise for the future of Stephen Strange, and it is definitely recommended. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Russ Dobler May 31, 2017

    It's a better Spider-Woman story than it is a Doctor Strange one, but there's enough of a hook here to come back for more to see if that changes. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Jun 1, 2017

    Doctor Strange isn't the natural choice for a Secret Empire tie-in, especially considering that his current power level is very low. But this issue really places Strange in some tight situations because he doesn't have his usual mystic objects and because most of New York City is in a Darkforce bubble. Read Full Review

    So the story's kind of disjointed as Strange and some guest stars fight for survival against assorted giant monsters. Despite the obstacle, its a solid issue with strong artwork (and all the gross creatures your admission price can bear). Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Jun 6, 2017

    Chris Bachalo is hard artist to follow. Its abstract style fits perfectly for the insane world of Doctor Strange. When the change of team was announced my biggest concern was who would replace him. Niko Henrichon is not a name I was aware of prior to this issue but major credit for him for crafting a book that keeps the world of Doctor Strange consistent while putting his own stamp on it. Marvel has been hurting for quality artists recently so when get a positive surprise like Henrichon it is something to celebrate. Read Full Review

    If you dig the character, then this one to read. If you're more casual, then it's still worth your time, especially to check out the imaginative creature art. Read Full Review

    With some fan service for Hopeless' previous book, a couple laughs and an interesting cliffhanger, there's a few bits to like in this, but overall it's hard to  walk away satisfied with the total delivery of this issue. Read Full Review
