    This is a great story for both the experienced and inexperienced reader. One does not need to know the minute details of the myths to enjoy and the story is not bogged down with unnecessary exposition. Read Full Review

    This is still a super hero comic at its core, but it felt just a little like a character exploration as well, and I would love to see more of this in Marvel Comics going forward. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Apr 20, 2022

    Moustafa delivers some fun, impressive visuals throughout the issue. The art style is perfect for a classic style of comic storytelling and delivers on the tone and action beautifully. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - StoryBabbler Apr 21, 2022

    Doctor Strange: Nexus of Nightmares #1 is a solid standalone story that can be read mostly out of continuity. Ralph Macchio provides a Doctor Strange story with an old-school feel to it given life by Ibrahim Moustafa's art and Neeraj Menon's colors. It's not as epic as the cover would suggest and retreads familiar territory for Doctor Strange, but it's a fine story for new fans of the Sorcerer Supreme. Read Full Review

    It's not poorly written, but Macchios' style of overly wordy panels is grating, and in fact would suit that purpose well, but it's not something that longtime readers are going to find much interest in. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Apr 18, 2022

    Nexus of Nightmares #1 is out of place. The plot and dialogue are classic in their tone and structure, which can be enjoyable. The magic battles are visually fascinating, and the art team excelled in creating a Doctor Strange book that looks different. But the slow beginning and the lack of context around current comics prevent me from really developing an interest in the book. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 18, 2022

    Doctor Strange: Nexus of Nightmares is an okay adventure that looks good even though the art must contend with a lot of dialogue. The one-shot has an old-school feel thanks to the scripting that should please older readers with a full origin for newbies as well. Read Full Review
