    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Dec 26, 2017

    Stephen Strange has to deal with the unfairness of his predicament. Why did the Vishanti make him do battle with the other mystics if they already knew they were going to replace him? This only adds insult to injury. Is there a motivation to their decision? Are they just upset with Strange for some unknown reason that they aren't sharing? And why give the title to someone who shows no interest in obtaining it? So many questions are raised with this issue. One of the best Dr. Strange story arcs in a long time. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Dec 23, 2017

    Doctor Strange #383 is a compelling and interesting continuation to the Loki: Sorcerer Supreme story. It takes some interesting turns, and we get to see Stephen Strange take some ever-more irresponsible risks. It is a great read with solid artwork, and I definitely recommend it. Give it a read.

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Dec 29, 2017

    The image of Strange giving up the body of Bats as an offering to the World Tree is tragic and somehow apt given it was Loki who caused the death in the first place. Strange may well have taken the bull by the horns here as he grapples with magic he has barely reckoned with and I wonder if the solution is worse than the problem. Magic this big must surely come at a we have already been warned. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 21, 2017

    This series is frequently blurring the line between telling a Doctor Strange story and a Thor story, and that's not even factoring in the unexpected return of the Sentry. Yet somehow that odd intersection of characters and franchises works better than it has any right to. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Michael D Dec 20, 2017

    The rest of the issue involves Stephen taking a big risk and gaining some serious power. There will definitely be a showdown between Stephen and Loki very soon and it will definitely be exciting. Also worth mentioning is the fact that Bats gets to be a good boy one more time. Overall, the creative team keeps this a high quality title. It’s a lot of fun with plenty of both heart and kick ass moments. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Dec 26, 2017

    While Cates has dug into some bonkers corners of the Marvel Universe, Doctor Strange #383 isn't as off-the-wall as you might expect - but it's still a solid entry in the latest trials and tribulations of the Sorcerer Supreme. Read Full Review
