    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Apr 27, 2023

    Its a solid second issue to this new team, and both MacKay and Ferry seem to have a firm grasp on how they want this book to work. Ferrys art here is a masterful showing by the legend, and compliments the story beats flawlessly. The few weak spots can be course corrected in a book thats still so young, so Strange fans are going to get one heck of a ride. Read Full Review

    Despite starting a new story rather than carrying off of the last issue's major reveal, Doctor Strange #2 is a compelling issue that manages to keep the reader's attention. Read Full Review

    Trying to predict the future aside, Doctor Strange #2 does a lot of the heavy lifting required to establish an elaborate story and it does an exceptional job of it at that. Read Full Review

    Dr. Strange #2 brings Stephen Strange and Clea into conflict with Stephen's old foe, Nightmare. But things are not as they seem. The story and writing is good and everyone is consistent with their characters, at least how Jed MacKay writes them. And while it's underwhelming to see Nightmare diminished once again as a villain, the story and the art made up for it in some ways. By the end, Stephen and Clea's story converges with Wong's from the first issue and set things up for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Apr 29, 2023

    Doctor Strange #2 opens the door for a far-reaching conspiracy about a hidden force stealing the souls of children. Ferry's art is outstanding, and the plot is creative, but the low pacing and lack of energy/urgency make this comic a mild struggle to get through. Read Full Review
