    It's story time as ‘Strange' turns back the clock as we learn about the very origins of the magically villainous Blasphemy Cartel. Another solid beautiful issue of this series that gives us tons of character moments and continues to build up the magical side of Marvel, giving new life to a forgotten organization and set of characters.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 1, 2022

    It would be really nice to see Clea remain in the center of the panel for many, many issues to come, but all it took to knock her away from the spotlight was the sudden appearance of her late husband. This is kind of a disappointment that drags the series a bit for the moment. MacKays Clea is as fun as his Black Cat. A team-up series for the both of them would be irresistible in MacKays hands.

    Clea is at the forefront as we, as a comic industry, are clearly waiting to see her on the big screen again! She is a strong player in the magic world, and her presence alone in this comic is a huge driving force! Here is hoping the whole touch issue can be resolved! Read Full Review

    While this works to provide information through some fairly standard storytelling techniques, it gives us a little bit of time with Stephen as the Sorceror Supreme and that's kind of fun. But it also keeps Clea to the edges of the issue where she's just mad and plotting what she's going to do next and nothing more than that. This is unfortunate since this is supposed to be her book and my worry about it being heavily focused on Stephen with his return is looking more and more likely. It's a decent way to frame what happened before but it's not exactly unexpected. With the delays the book has had I'm glad they were able to keep the story going without full-on filler and to delve more into what set all of this in motion. But it's definitely a step-down overall from what we've largely been getting and left me a little wary of what's to come. Read Full Review

    There's still a uniqueness to be had here though so even if the art doesn't live up to previous issues it's a fun story to read. Read Full Review
