•  Stephen Strange is a little out of his element traveling the galaxy - and it shows!
•  Powerless, friendless and far from home, Doctor Strange is just an Earthling who needs to convince a stranger that he's worth saving.
•  Meanwhile, a hostile civilization discovers Earth's existence, and a new adversary to his wanton, unpaid spell-casting.

    Between Aaron, Cates, and Waid, it's easy to see that we're in the middle of pure resurgence of Strange, and that my friends is an incredible feeling. Read Full Review

    Whew, I literally expelled air when Kanna was introduced to this story and then I inhaled smiled and continued smiling till the end. The art is just fantastic by Jesus Saiz. Mark Waid had me as depressed as possible. I almost couldn't take it anymore and then we changed direction completely. The colors came back to the story the energy came back and I'm glad I stayed with it.  Read Full Review

    If you couldn't find the place to jump into Doctor Strange's story before, this is not the time to miss jumping into a new space adventure experience that he has never had before. The best hero tales are when they are thrown out of their element. That is when heroes rise and pull off the impossible. Issue #2 captured that shining moment perfectly with a first real taste of magic without consequence. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Jared Wood Jun 24, 2018

    So far "Doctor Strange in space" continues to be a compelling idea. We're getting to see more unique ways of using magic, along with new alien worlds to be introduced to. Blending science fiction and fantasy doesn't always work but so far Doctor Strange is proving the status quo wrong. I look forward to seeing what's in store for the future. Read Full Review

    It all looks very shiny and full of spacey goodness but we need to know who the big bad is and SOON so I forget to focus on plot holes. Read Full Review

    Doctor Strange has traveled the cosmos before, but I feel like Waid has drifted too far off the path of mysticism that makes the character so unique in the Marvel universe. Read Full Review
