• Mephisto has taken up some major real estate in Las Vegas, but he's not going to stop there. He's got the rest of Earth on his "TO GET" list and only Doctor Strange can stop him.
•  The only downside? Strange went into Mephisto's Hotel Inferno to confront him and has not been seen since.
•  Add the fact that the devilish villain has already corrupted several Avengers, and Wong and his rag-tag group of mystical heroes look like they're in serious trouble.

    DOCTOR STRANGE DAMNATION #2 provides readers with a grim and gritty look at Marvel's mystical universe, and it does so with a compelling plot and interesting characterization. While none of its elements are perfect, this is a perfectly enjoyable read for fans. Read Full Review

    With so many changes from last issue it could have been a struggle to keep things ticking but an admirable job was done by all concerned from artist to writing team. Keep it up, guys. Read Full Review

    If we don't get a Midnight Sons book out of this then Marvel is messing up. Read Full Review

    Donny Cates and Nick Spencer's script does its best to live in the same territory that Spencer's Superior Foes of Spider-Man did, delivering quick-witted character interactions that are fun to read and then relying on artist Szymon Kudranski to package them in a way that draws out the humor.

    A good issue of a great story that could have used a trim of some B story moments to pump up the A plot. Read Full Review

    With all of the overblown setup and tying into Secret Empire out of the way, Doctor Strange: Damnation #2 is able to play to writer Nick Spencer's strength: his ability to write fun banter for a motley crew of B-list characters. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Mar 8, 2018

    Overall I am enjoying the story in Doctor Strange: Damnation #2. Yes, I do feel like some of the things in this issue could have been put in the first issue. That does make the pacing feel a little off. That is a minor issue though. The writing of Donny Cates and Nick Spencer is loads of fun. They write this group of heroes extremely well. The art in this issue sadly brings it down a notch as it took me out of the story quite a bit throughout the issue. Still, with only two issues to go, I am with it until the end because the story is just too much awesome to pass up (plus Rod Reis is coming back for issue #4). Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Michael D Mar 7, 2018

    This book continues to feel a bit like a wasted potential. Change in artist and a shift in the flow of the plot hold the book back. Although, if you’re a fan of the Midnight Sons or just unconventional, weird teams in general, there’s a lot of fun to be had. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 8, 2018

    Doctor Strange: Damnation #2 is better than the first issue, even if it has the same problems. The weird Ocean's Eleven but with magic wielders and fighters allows me to forget some of the unappealing parts of the premise. It's still not great, but it's a little better. The different art helps too. Read Full Review
