    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Dec 4, 2015

    There are few creative synergies that use the potential of comic art with such beauty and effectiveness, but Aaron and Bachalo not only pull it off -- they make it look easy. "Doctor Strange" #3, like the past issues, is a wonderful reminder of how awesome comic books can be. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 5, 2015

    Bachalo's art is an insane as always, but I'm finding I don't particularly mind. He does a fine job drawing all of this insanity. And with Aaron channeling the wackiest ideas he possibly can, while maintaining a very strong core in Doctor Strange himself, you've got one heck of a fun comic. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Dec 4, 2015

    This issue of Doctor Strange maintains the lively tone that number one introduced. With his feature film debut on the horizon, nows a good time to jump on the mystical Marvel bandwagon. The two interpretations of the titular character will more than likely differ, but its always nice to have a primer or context. Aaron and Bachalo make the comic very accessible for newcomers and dont bog the plot down with continuity constraints. If wild and crazy is what you want, wild and crazy is what youll get!

    Comicsverse - Sean Bartley Jan 6, 2016

    DOCTOR STRANGE #3 doesn't do much to advance the plot of the book, nor does it add any wrinkles to the Dr. Strange character. It's far from a bad comic, though. The writing is still strong, and while Bachalo's art might not be for everyone, there's no denying the mans skillset or talent, which is perfectly suited to a book like this. Here's hoping that Aaron gets things moving next time around. Read Full Review

    This run is proving to be a highly entertaining take on a character who is tough for most creators to grasp, but this particular issue just proved to be a bit too repetitive. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Dec 7, 2015

    Bachalo's exaggerated and weird style seems like it would be a good fit for this property, and to an extent, it is. I do find it incredibly cluttered and busy, though, making it difficult to discern what the reader is seeing. Aaron's exposition-heavy script is vital when it comes to translating the visuals into part of the story. The notion of distinguishing between the magical, invisible elements of the world by presenting them in color while the mundane world is in black-and-white is an interesting one, but it never look quite right to the eye.
