    Despite the heaviness that stems from the miniseries central content, The Death of Doctor Strange remains a heartfelt and emotional, and even fun story that takes a turn into magical horror that adds much-needed weight to the story. All aspects of the issue from the story to the artwork are 100% an unabashed loving celebration of Doctor Strange, his world, and the Marvel Universe as a whole both past and present.

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 1, 1970

    The Death of Doctor Strange #2 explores the Sorcerer Supreme's demise and introduces a new trio of magical threats in the process. While the mystery behind Strange's death has yet to be solved, the threat of the Three Mothers has escalated the stakes, and I look forward to seeing their continuing role in the series.

    Lee Garbett does great work with the art in the issue. The action is thrilling and visually entertaining, but I love the contrast between the contemporary characters and Stranges classic look. Read Full Review

    The Death of Dr. Strange #2 is every bit as good as the first issue. By this point you have to be invested. Jed Mackay has crafted a well written story with characters we know and love. The pencils and colors add to the depth of the tale and help readers enjoy the story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 20, 2021

    The Death of Doctor Strange#2 leans into the very clever twist on this new version of Doctor Strange very well. You'll want to see how an old-school character riffs off modern Marvel heroes while soaking up the awe-inducing Three Mothers. It's a superhero story that already feels bold, exciting, and even a little bit haunting. Read Full Review

    All things considered, this sophomore outing is paced incredibly fast and makes for a rather light read, though that's not indicative of its quality script and lineart. Read Full Review

    Magic? Check. A whos who of Marvels mystical characters? Check. Quips that mostly land? Check. So with a second issue in, MacKay and Garbett have made the deal of Doctor Stranges death a fun ride to go along to. Read Full Review

    Death of Doctor Strange #2 is more action-packed than the first issue. That being said considering how much story we got in issue one this issue felt slower in pacing. This "new" Doctor is not quite as experienced and therefore it will be interesting to see where this series goes with that. His interactions with the other characters are great and I hope that gets explored more. Read Full Review
