    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Jul 8, 2020

    There was a lot of takeaway from this issue of Dr. Strange " Surgeon Supreme, by the end. They packed a lot of discoveries and revelations into this issue, and I for one was satisfied with who the mastermind turned out to be. It was one of those things where you may find yourself wondering why you didn't think of said person orchestrating this chaos, but it worked because anyone would have assumed this was a strictly magic problem.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 8, 2020

    I liked this issue for the sense of adventure and expansion of the magical worlds Stephen Strange seems to be able to trot into at a moment's notice. For the longest time, Marvel Comics has clipped this character's wings by reducing his abilities but now it seems we're steering directly into the awesome charms that go beyond just abracadabra.
