Creative team Mark Waid and Jesus Saiz are joined by some of the best DOCTOR STRANGE artists of all time to tell a monumentally strange tale! Someone has been working in the background since the first issue, chipping away at Doctor Strange and other magicians, undercutting and depleting their magic, and the other shoe finally drops. Does Strange stand a chance against someone who can take his magic away with the snap of their fingers?

    Mark Waid and a talented horde of artists (led by Jesus Saiz) have created a wonderful issue that encapsulates everything Stephen Strange should be, while also setting up for what could be a fantastic arc in the coming months. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 30, 2019

    The art is beautifully done across the board. There are panels that evoke some of the best visual moments from the history of the character and the art in the main story in brilliantly detailed. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 5, 2019

    With the big 400th issue celebration out of the way, Waid and Saiz are now free to send Strange chasing after an old villain with a history that goes all the way back to Stranges earliest adventures between the covers of Strange Tales. Waid and Saiz make an excellent team. Hopefully Waid will have a similarly satisfying collaboration with British artist Barry Kitson when he takes over the art for issue #12. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Feb 13, 2019

    With four tales and one pin up from some of the most iconic artists of the title, all gathered from the past and present of Doctor Strange, the result is a fitting celebration of 400 issues of Doctor Strange in 40 pages. Multi faceted snapshots of the man who became the magical protector of the Marvel universe. Read Full Review

    I can't say that Doctor Strange #10 was worth the price, but it was worthy of what we got in terms of the answers we've been waiting for since the first issue. We now know what is meant by a price paid for magic, and who deals out the bill. That just leaves us with what comes after skipping the bill for this long, and crossing the person who keeps the tab.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 29, 2019

    Doctor Strange #10 is the 400th issue if you count legacy numbering and in many ways, it does a fantastic job honoring the character. Mark Waid's main story, along with the fantastic art from Saiz, will make you want more. Read Full Review

    "Doctor Strange" #10 is a wonderful celebration of the hero worthy of the milestone numbering placed on the cover. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Manuel Gomez Jan 29, 2019

    Doctor Strange #400 is the kind of anniversary issue all celebratory chapters should strive to emulate. It pushed the current story forward toward a huge moment, yet also has some nice, quite callbacks and stories that give credence to the timelessness of the character in question. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Brandon Lawrence Feb 1, 2019

    The only criticism I have is the side stories. I feel like Marvel wants to have its cake and eat it too. You can continue a character's ongoing title and celebrate landmark numbers like 400 but if you want to attract new readers with a #1 re-release you shouldn't get to. All the stories really did was distract and bring down my spirits that were so high after the main story. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jan 29, 2019

    Now 400 issues after his debut, you can sense how far Doctor Strange has come from his initial origins - and perhaps it's that anniversary that makes this issue in particular stand out in stark contrast. While the idea of bringing Stephen Strange to space has made sense given his role in the Avengers: Infinity War film, this series has leaned a bit too traditional for a character as iconoclastic as the Master of the Mystic Arts - and while Waid tries (perhaps a little too abruptly) to thrust Stephen back into the outre and the bizarre, Jesus Saiz's style as an artist means readers are unfortunately going to get hit with a case of narrative whiplash.
