    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 28, 2022

    Issues one and four have been the best in the series thus far. What MacKay had been tapping into in the first issue finally slams into the page in the fourth installment with an impressive impact. Once again, Clea feels much more impressive than Stephen ever was...which was something that MacKay had managed to level at the reader in the first issue but hadnt really gotten around to delivering again until the fourth. If MacKay and company can hold onto this energy, Stephen can remain resting in the afterlife for quite some time. His job is covered quite well here. Read Full Review

    Marcelo Ferreira delivers some stunning art in the issue. From the wonderful and expressive character moment between Clea and Umar to the stylized and beautifully detailed action, the art wonderfully complements the mood and tone of the story. Read Full Review

    ‘Strange' continues to really explore not only more of the magical threats and realms of the Marvel Universe but gives Clea a space to really expand and grow in the universe in ways that we haven't seen in quite some time. It's a magical, dark, but also whimsical series full of great spectacle but also deep emotional heartfelt human moments that resonate beyond the pages. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 10, 2022

    Strange has some fun with the arrival of Umar though the reality is that it doesn't accomplish much at the moment in terms of larger storytelling. Yet. It's good to see how Umar is viewing her daughter and the realization that it's not all some big power play is something she just can't process. But it's also good to see Clea react to hearing her mother express pride in her daughter for the first time, even if it's not warranted in the reason why. The two definitely have a delightful meeting and this is exactly the kind of issue I enjoy, though it would have been better without the seemingly obligatory fight. That could have held off for another issue and just given us more time between these two in talking things out and reacting as crazily as they do. It's a lot of good fun and the artwork really delivers when it comes to the reaction shots. Read Full Review

    Strange continues to be an interesting series, but sadly one with a ticking clock on how long it can continue. Read Full Review
