    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 30, 2019

    Andy MacDonald's art in the first story is perfect for the tone and spectacle that Howard's story is creating. Sharma's style of art perfectly complements the dark, disturbing tale Pichetshote has woven. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Oct 30, 2019

    Existing as it does sort of outside the formal timeline set-up between the end of the last Doctor Strange series and the beginning of the next, this is a fun, little excursion into some other time for a few quick moments of magic and horror just in time for Halloween. Howard and Pichetshote engage the Marvel universe from its darker edges in a fun glance into the shadows as the nights begin to get longer before a couple of months before the arrival of a whole new decade.  Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Nov 19, 2019

    Despite the huge cast of characters in the main story, its the secondary back up tale that is more intriguing . A rare occasion in an annual. As such it deserves the most kudos. Read Full Review

    If you came to this issue for a continuation of Mark Waids run, you came to the wrong place. If you were interested in unique stories that were reasonably entertaining, these will do the trick and wet your whistle. However, this annual is certainly not necessary and could easily be skipped.

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Oct 30, 2019

    All in all, the annual gives you a taste of everything you would expect from a Dr. Strange title. It brings supernatural action, a feeling of horror, but also has a heart-warming aspect that may not have been expected. And the second story is a highlight and could be implying what the future holds for the Master of the Mystic Arts. Read Full Review
