    Jed MacKay's Strange has been a fun building block toward the next chapter of the character in the Marvel Universe, but Strange #9 proves that this dynamic between Stephen and Clea is one that shouldn't end. Read Full Review

    ‘Strange' reaches the endgame as the dual Sorcerers Supreme begin a final confrontation with the Blasphemy Cartel which leads them to another deceased former ally as well as the secret behind the Cartel. Every issue of this series has been such a magically engaging experience, with great character depth and moments as well as stunning visuals and vivid colors all structured to maximize the effect of this tale. Truly a must-read series. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 23, 2022

    Again--it really feels like MacKay is leaning in the direction of bringing Stephen back as Sorceror Supreme. Clea doesnt seem nearly as fascinating in this issue as she has in previous issues. It begins to feel like MacKay might even be losing interest in her, which is really too bad as shes been a hell of a lot more interesting than hes been in quite some time. With any luck, MacKay or some other writer can take a closer look at Clea in the months to come before Stephens inevitable return to the center of Bleecker Street. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 21, 2022

    Strange #9 sets up a great cliffhanger for what should be a must-read finale. The concept of Stephen Strange as the Harvestman is fully realized here and he lets loose his abilities in exciting ways. Throw in some good gory violence and Strange #9 is a raucous good time. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 28, 2022

    With Strange wrapping up in the next issue and evolving into something else, it's a reminder of why Marvel frustrates me and why I've fallen off so many of their works for so long. A series that actually dealt with Clea as the Sorcerer Supreme and interactions with others would have been interesting. But it's an epilogue to a past project and a setup for a future one and it brought out Strange almost from the start, albeit as the Harvestman. That's not bad but it just keeps us from engaging with Clea when she should have been the focus. This issue does some nice stuff in relation to how she views Stephen and her life with him, and the new complications, while also providing for some fun but forgettable action sequences. Consequences, once again, feel slight. Read Full Review
