    Kev Walker delivers some awesome art in this issue. The action looks amazing and Walker makes excellent use of the panels to move the story along and expand visually on Doctor Strange's world. Read Full Review

    The Daily Fandom - Megan Prevost Feb 2, 2020

    It appears that the main arc of the series will center around Dr. Strange figuring out where these weapons come from. I wouldn't be surprised if more of these weapon-wielding villains came out of the woodwork. If you had asked me after the first issue if I would recommend this series, I probably would have given you a wishy-washy "sure, why not." Now I definitely would recommend this series. Sometimes the first issue of a comic isn't the best, and that was the case here. Hopefully, this series keeps getting better and better. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jan 29, 2020

    Some would say that with the first issue this book looked like it was in good hands, though I would dare to say that after the events of Dr. Strange " Surgeon Supreme #2? Now it feels like this book is in good hands to take us into the next chapter in the life of Stephen Strange with the challenge of being both the sorcerer supreme and a neurosurgeon again.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 29, 2020

    This issue is a bit of a departure from the surgeon aspect of Stranges new life. The life of a medical professional might have been a bit more interesting to maintain for a second issue straight, but Waid has places to take the story. It would be kind of a major disappointment if the surgeon/magician thing ended up being more of a background detail when there are so many possibilities in Stranges duality between medical science and magic. The series continues to be fun regardless of any missed potential, however, as Waid and Walker do a solidly entertaining job of bringing Strange to the page. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 3, 2020

    While this probably won't be a run that will define the character, Doctor Strange: Surgeon Supreme is some good, old-fashioned meat-and-potatoes superhero comics, and done well to boot " and it's that level of quality that helps this magical doctor cut through the superhero doldrums.

    Comics: The Gathering - Jay Hill Jan 30, 2020

    The balancing act continues by Dr. Strange. On one hand, he holds the health of any patient he chooses to operate on and on the other he holds the safety of reality as a whole. But, he is still in control. However, this issue inches dangers from the shadows and closer to our hero. The story seems on a stable track to stay entertaining, but its main themes have yet to really flourish, leaving room for this story to go in any direction. Read Full Review

    Even if the core conceit of this story still doesn't quite click, it's still an enjoyable, if basic, issue of superhero comics. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jan 29, 2020

    I'm already getting bored with this series after two issues! While a fight between Doctor Strange and an overpowered Wrecker seems like some fun, Waid sets up things that hardly play out, and it all amounts to nothing anyway. I am giving this one more issue to grab me before I bailjust like the last Doctor Strange book by Mark Waid. Read Full Review
