    The Marvel Universe's new Sorcerer Supreme continues to make her presence felt and takes the fight right to her new foes while preparing for an even more significant familial threat. In more ways than one, a magical series full of great character beats and energetic artwork that hits all the right notes. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 1, 2022

    I was on the fence with Strange, but Strange #3 made me a believer. MacKay clearly has a strong take on the Sorcerer Supreme with a darker edge. Strange takes Marvel magic to a new gritty street level. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 4, 2022

    Somehow one just knows that Dr. Strange is going to be resurrected all too soon. Given what Clea has been doing these past three months as Sorcerer Supreme, that feels like it will be at least a little disappointing. Cleas adventures thus far have been an appealing blend of mystery and magic that draws fantasy into a world of crime and tech. Its the type of fusion that MacKay had managed so well with his Black Cat series. The hero is dark. The villains are fascinating. Theres a tremendous dramatic weight about it all. Cleas fun. Heres hoping she sticks around for a while. Read Full Review

    Strange #3 continues Clea's odyssey as Earth's new Sorceror Supreme. The issue is filled with action and shows what a powerful force of nature Clea is. The issue ends with two great cliffhangers, and it'll be interesting to see what happens next. Read Full Review

    Ferreira strikes the perfect visual tone for this story and I love the dramatic and tension filled visuals. They work even better with the more quiet moments towards the end of the issue. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 21, 2022

    Strange continues to be a really good book, albeit one with an awkward release schedule that makes me forget that I even have it half the time. It's almost the kind of book that pushes you to trade-wait for it. I really like the artwork in this issue as it delivers some really good stuff with the Nobody's and the color design while the script moves things forward in a solid way. Clea's push to find out what's going on is causing other things to shift around her and it's creating more mysteries. The next issue brings her mother into the picture but I suspect it'll be a good portent of things to come with the main storyline or at least seeding for what's next in the series. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 7, 2022

    Clea has to face foes who merge the mystical and the mechanical and it makes for an exciting new wrinkle in the sage of the Sorcerer Supreme. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Jun 6, 2022

    Overall story wise this issue holds its own as well as the previous two. The pacing is solid and the balance between peril and humor worked well. Especially in the offhand scene where Clea is cooking in the kitchen with Wong and gets a message from Mommy Dearest. And as a counterpoint the background threat of the Cartel also sets up more foreboding times ahead. This run is beginning to seem like a memorable start for the new Sorcerer Supreme and the irreverent way that it deals with the threats. Which is something that Strange himself has not done for several years. It just needs the art to up its game to match the storytelling. Read Full Review

    This is OK I guess but again I am not so keen on reading stories that require you to read a wiki beforehand. Your mileage may vary. Read Full Review
