    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 21, 2022

    The title of the issue is kind of fun. The Big Spell might be a reference to Raymond Chandlers hardboiled detective novel, The Big Sleep. Given that theres a real sense of loss in the story, it could also be a reference to The Big Chill--the 1980s dark comedy about loss. Wongs investigating the death of Dr. Strange, but hes also mourning his loss in his own way. Its not the type of thing often explored in mainstream superhero comics.  Read Full Review

    Garbett offers some fantastic visuals throughout the issue. The action is fantastic and I love the dark, film noir style of the art and how it complements the detective noir tone of the story.  Read Full Review

    ‘Strange' takes a semi-detour placing Wong in the spotlight, showcasing just what makes the character so wonderful and how he fits into the Marvel Universe while still moving the overall series plot forward in significant ways. Everything about this series is a winning formula that takes us deep into the magical side of the universe, with gorgeous dark yet bright visuals, and a powerful character-focused emotional throughline that keeps one hooked month after month.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 28, 2022

    With Clea nowhere to be found in this issue outside of a reference or two, Stange puts its weight on Wong and he's naturally quite up to the task. His role is explored at first and then it shifts to him dealing with moving through the intersections of magic and engaging with people to try and understand what's going on. A touch of action gives us a distraction but the real meat of the book is in its time dealing with Jean Grey – the first time I've read hear in anything in years – and then the big reveal at the end which I wish was given more time here instead of the pointless action earlier. A solid book all around but one that could have been paced better and fleshed out more. Read Full Review

    Jed MacKay pens what is perhaps the best issue of this new series, an entirely Wong-focused adventure, giving the reader unique context and insight into the character that largely lives on the margins of Doctor Strange tales. Read Full Review
