    This epilogue gives the story an added sense of context and emotional weight that should prove invaluable going forward. Read Full Review

    Stephen is in for some dark days, and Im frankly glad that such a story is being explored through him and magic. Ive spoken on this before, but I hope that this story has major ramifications on the rest of the Marvel U. To be honest, theres no way it CANT, considering the cameos throughout the story and the intimate connection many characters have to a world of mysticism in this publishers comic pages. To fully capitalize on the gravity of Doctor Strange #6, Marvel has to fall in line and create the impact in a variety of series, which will make for a wonderful though bleak story. Theres so much potential for this All-New All-Different Doctor Strange, and this creative team is surely the one to bring it to light. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Justin Partridge Mar 9, 2016

    The world has grown colder in the wake of Doctor Strange #6, and the embers of magic are quickly dying. While Jason Aaron started this new solo title with a comedic edge, it seems that he is turning a corner with its first major story arc. Aaron has brought Strange as low as he can go in the opening issue and even though we know there has to be a triumph at the end, things look very dire right out of the gate. Armed with an art team that refuses to give anything but their best Doctor Strange #6 is exactly the kind of start you want for your first big major story; one that digs its hooks into readers deep and refuses to let them go.

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Mar 10, 2016

    The end of this issue presents us with a Marvel Universe that is changed, albeit in a way that few in that Universe will recognize. But it's a great ending, one that serves a springboard for this book to embark upon another captivatingly weird and fun and thrilling arc. Doctor Streange continues to be among the most enjoyable books Marvel's putting out. Read Full Review

    Doctor Strange #6 is where the stakes feel real. It is one thing when all the other universes are falling, yet anther thing when its the universe you connect with. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 12, 2016

    Aaron is clearly having fun with Doctor Strange, in a way I haven't seen since the MightyGodKing blog. He weaves all these fantastical tales and elements in and out of the story, from floating statues near New Zealand to a short list of random magic-users in the MU who suddenly lose their power in crazy, anecdotal ways. Doctor Strange a fun ride, and the end of this issue promises that we're only at the beginning. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Erik Gonzalez Mar 10, 2016

    Doctor Strange continues to break boundaries and deliver twists most becoming of the Sorcerer Supreme. This creative team perfectly suits the character and is adept at bringing fresh nuances to his established persona and mythology. This may be the start of the last days of magic, but its clear this is only the beginning of the return of Doctor Strange. Read Full Review

    Wednesday Comics - Marvin Salguero Mar 28, 2016

    Overall, Doctor Strange #6 failed to excite me outside of the art. While the story is passable, it's turning into a predictable, unoriginal action plot. Bachalo is really doing great work here, but the story has lost it's direction since the great first issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Mar 14, 2016

    With the fighting seemingly at an end for now, hopefully the next issue will pick back up with something a bit more inviting. For now, I'm just glad we had the backup feature in "Doctor Strange" #6, because it's the big winner for the readers. Read Full Review
