    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Dec 10, 2017

    This Doctor Strange series is already a major triumph from a monumental creative dream team. After only two issues, this is a can't miss comic. You can safely assume anything with Donny Cates involved is head-to-toe a spectacle you'll not soon forget. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joe Glass Dec 9, 2017

    Doctor Strange #382 is a damn near perfect example at painting a human drama in an absurdist scenario in the broadest of strokes that contains all the things that good comics are capable of bringing to the audience. If you'd stepped away from Doctor Strange, as I had of late, now is most certainly the time to come back. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Dec 16, 2017

    As comebacks go this one has just come out of left field. Logan seems to have left the door wide open when he returned and now not only Xavier, Jean, Adam Warlock and Bruce are returning but they will be joined by another Marvel powerhouse. And with this one having a track record of being a God-killer Loki had better watch out. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Dec 6, 2017

    “Doctor Strange” #382 is an issue that perfectly illustrates just how desperate Strange has become. He's lost and he knows it. He has no power left and takes drastic action that's going to really impact the Marvel Universe going forward. Walta and Bellaire continue to work together wonderfully and honestly, this is not a series you'll want to ignore for much longer. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Dec 8, 2017

    The bombshell at the end isn't as earth-shattering as you may have been led to believe, but everything else is enticing enough for that to not really matter. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Dec 6, 2017

    While the flaws of Doctor Strange #382 are in certain aspects of the writing, the writing is also responsible for bringing the comic to the highs that it reaches. There's hope that the future of this series will see the comic either settle into one protagonist or link the two into the same narratives, and what this comic does right far outshine those criticisms. It's a comic that flows with sincerity and personality, and shows both Cates as a writer, Walta as an artist, and Bellaire as a colorist doing some of their best, most emotionally powerful work.

    Comics: The Gathering - Michael D Dec 6, 2017

    This creative team has a clear road map with, what seems to be, plenty of crazy stops. This issue proves that Cates can hit those character beats. The surprise at the end will surely lead to a crazy action packed issue next month where Walta and Bellaire can flex their creative muscles. This team has turned Doctor Strange into a title that every Marvel fan should be reading. Read Full Review
