    Damnation has proved to be a hell of a good time so far and it's getting more intense by the issue. Read Full Review

    The ongoing petty rivalry between Strange and Loki is enough to make this issue worth checking out, but the way Nico Henrichon depicts Las Vegas as a stygian abyss makes it a must-read comic. Read Full Review

    ‘Damnation' part two was a big step forward from the first part. If you're looking for a Doctor Strange story that will pull no punches to show how dangerous his world can be? This is the book for you. Doctor Strange #387 plays with the good doctor's emotions, and plays with ours as well. You definitely would anticipate that next issue when that light at the end of the tunnel is looking dim. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 15, 2018

    Doctor Strange #387 (along with Damnation #2) give me some hope for the rest of this story. It shows some acknowledgement that Strange wasnt inherently correct in his actions, and it adequately punishes the Sorcerer Supreme for his titanic ego. Plus, Henrichons artwork is great. This one earns a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Regardless of your feelings about Damnation as a whole, it's clear that Cates and company are still doing exciting work with Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme. Read Full Review

    It's very odd to have a tie-in issue to be much better then the main story, but somehow, this still happened. Amazing artwork and writing shows that Doctor Strange is still one of the best comics Marvel has right now.

    This story was very good, than very heartbreaking, then very surprising.
    I don't understand why marvel will reboot Strange & without Cates & Henrichon. They do a awesome work.

    Coeur - Nice & in a way link to casino so that's 1.5/2
    Writing - I loved it ... Nicely done. 3/3
    Arts - Henrichon arts grow on me. They give together a personality for their run. 2.5/3
    Feeling - I'm not regretting doing this ongoing. 2/2

    This issue gives you a glimpse of what happened to Doctor Strange before the reveal at the end of Damnation number two. It actually leaves off in the exact same place running parallel to what we saw in most of that issue. It is done in a pretty clever way that gives you some insight into what might be happening with the Avengers as well. I had given the second issue of Damnation a smaller score because of some frustrations, but going back after reading this I think I would have lifted it a little more. That said there were some questions that made me think the team was just writing as they go and calling it complete. This could be *spoiler* territory, but Loki mentions his warning to Strange only to be revealed to be a lie. Seems confusing more

    I haven't been reading "Damnation," but kudos to Donnie Cates and Niko Henrichon for keeping this more or less comprehensible, and more importantly, enjoyable, on its own. The appearance of Clea brought me back, and the whole premise of the issue and how it ends is really well done. There's a sense with Marvel titles lately, like, well, it'll all start over again in a couple of months, so does this really matter? This is one where I'm trusting the creative team to bring it, even though its all ending.

    Another winner in this series. Great art and story. Doesn't get much better.

    Doctor Strange undergoes a twist in Mephisto's captivity. The script is full of potential and features really strong plotting. The visuals let me down, though, specifically in their repeated fumbling of human facial anatomy. The characterization and dialogue in this comic are really delicate; I can't appreciate their full impact when every page distracts me with wall-eyed women and creepy skeletal teeth. Compositions and finishes are great, but the characters within them are so relentlessly disturbing that I have to penalize the finished product as less satisfying than it could/should be.
