    This was an issue that was simply fun to read. The adventure Dr. Strange goes through is exciting every (trippy) step of the way. And, Mark Waid knows what to sprinkle throughout to give it more substance than is noticeable at first glance. With this being just the third beat in this tale, it opens up what could come next.

    Overall, Dr. Strange " Surgeon Supreme #3 was an enjoyable experience for the unique situation that Strange was thrown into. Magic is engaging when you can explore it, and they did not fail to give us that one element to this series which should never be ignored. Where there was confidence before in this creative team, now there is appreciation for what has not been lost about key selling points. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 12, 2020

    This is an interesting initial study of how Stranges life as a surgeon/magician might come together. Anchoring the story in both the hospital AND a fantasy dimension of magic gives the character a momentum that could carry the series in several different interesting directions. Read Full Review

    Dr. Strange the Surgeon Supreme sounds like a cool name, something I'm sure Mark Waid probably pitched jokingly before Marvel gave him the go-ahead. Being a surgeon is a big part of Stephan's origin story, and throughout the years Dr. Strange has found some way to go back to his profession, but it just doesn't scream "ongoing series". The fact that Dr. Strange can use techniques and think like a surgeon is situations is far more intriguing than him actually being in a hospital being a "surgeon". Read Full Review
