    This is the beginning of Waids massive issue 400 story and he has certainly kicked things off with a bang. Strange is on top form here as hes pushed to his limits, finding himself left with very few options as a new and lethal enemy closes in. Pick this one up, folks. Its only going to get more and more epic and we inch towards issue #400 in January. Read Full Review

    The art in this issue is amazing. The fights were visually stunning and everything complemented the narrative perfectly. Read Full Review

    Without the inner monologue of the previous run and the Loki scenario, there is no real way to tell just what Strange himself is thinking, Although the writing does show more insight into other characters. Mordo for instance has impersonated Strange himself in the past, so it was natural he had Casey do the same. And also he is shown as being somewhat hypocritical as he berates Stephen about the cost of magic, while using Casey as a weapon. Read Full Review

    This new run of Doctor Strange started out very strong, and the tale of his space travels was a fantastic followup to Cates' Earthbound story. However, things started getting lost in the shuffle with the "Two Doctors" story, and they only get more convoluted here. Read Full Review

    Issue #8 is full of unnecessary drama. It's a bit messy and focuses on typical cliche plot points that drive Strange apart from his allies while overcoming his enemies. Read Full Review
