    AiPT! - Zarik Khan Apr 11, 2018

    As the volume winds down, even in the midst of a crossover event Cates manages to find ways to start bringing home dangling thematic questions about Stephen Strange as a character that have always been present since Issue #1. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Gage Bullock Apr 11, 2018

    Cates was ballsy to take a pause in the middle of the action in a big crossover for Strange to take a breather but it works, Cates really seems to gets Strange and nails the dialogue and dry quippy nature the character has had. Niko Henrichsons art is just as crazy absurd and good as the story itself and really brings a lot to this series as well. His art shines the best when hes getting to draw crazy creatures so I like that Damnation really plays to his strengths. Read Full Review

    DOCTOR STRANGE #388 is a nearly perfect comic book narrative, with exciting twists and turns that reminded me of old school STRANGE comics. I epsecially loved the all-star art by Nico Henrichon, who truly highlighted the psychosis of the issue's main baddy! Read Full Review

    Even in his darkest hour Strange can rely on his friends to rally round, whether its a dust-up in a Necrotic Realm or a much needed mental slap round the chops from Bats. Read Full Review

    Doctor Strange #388 rights the ship with a fun and engaging tale of Stephen Strange and Bats the ghost Bassett Hound. We see the two navigate a prison of terror and confusion, and Niko Henrichon continues to impress with phenomenal artwork. This one gets a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Picking up after the events of Doctor Strange: Damnation #3, Doctor Strange #388 is a trippy adventure, but is, most importantly, easy to follow. Read Full Review
