    An incredibly well-drawn issue that reveals the best defense might be our last. Duggan and Smallwood make magic with this issue and will make everyone who reads this want, nay, need to read the Defenders series once it's out. Read Full Review

    Not having read the other The Best Defense titles I am not exactly sure how this fits in. But you can pick up The Best Defense: Doctor Strange #1 (part 3) and enjoy the story without having any previous knowledge of the other titles or what is happening in the ongoing Doctor Strange series. That is a great credit to Gerry Duggan; he tells a complete story while setting up the new The Defenders series. The art from Greg Smallwood is more than worth the price of admission. As always, he delivers some superb visuals that are stunning to look at. Read Full Review

    It's a wonderful exploration of the character that only adds to his current (wonderful) canon. Plus, it has me genuinely interested in the new Defenders series. So, mission accomplished. Read Full Review
