    The Death of Doctor Strange is a magical whodunnit that takes the audience on a somewhat tour of the depths of the often unexplored or forgotten magical realms of the Marvel Universe that anchors itself as a deep character exploration. There is a ton packed into these glorious gorgeous pages that really showcase the best ways to engage with decades of continuity while building something new at the same time. Read Full Review

    Garbett delivers some beautiful art on every page of this issue. There are so many great visual moments, and the style is reminiscent of some of the best classic stories of Doctor Strange. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Nov 24, 2021

    The Death of Doctor Strange #3 has moments both heartwarming and horrifying, as the Earth faces Armageddon without the Sorcerer Supreme. With two issues left, and the promise of a new Sorcerer Supreme, this story looks to be closing out in style. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 24, 2021

    The Death of Doctor Strange #3 is a good issue that sets in motion character motivations and direction while establishing high stakes. There is table setting going on here, but mixed in are nifty, imaginative magic ideas that are clever and intriguing. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - batbrad Nov 29, 2021

    The Death of Doctor Strange #3 is the halfway point of the main miniseries. There are some nice moments between rookie Doc and his supporting cast, mainly Clea. So far we haven't had a chance to see this version of Doctor Strange in battle. In fact previously for the most part he seemed to avoid getting involved. As he saw himself as more there to investigate his own death and settle affairs rather than fight. As mentioned earlier, it was nice to see him displaying how powerful he could be when attacking Mordo. I just wish the main villains came across as less a carbon copy of Galactus. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Steve Batley Nov 24, 2021

    I am really glad that Jed MacKay is on this book, as he keeps the pace perfectly pitched while still allowing the backstory to fill in the gaps. Meanwhile the art pops in the right places to allow the right scenes to draw the eye. Read Full Review

    There's some character work that can be done here, thanks to the version of Strange still alive is without the development of decades worth of storytelling, but even then the surface has only been scratched. Read Full Review

    I would recommend this one if you are a fan of Dr Strange and the magical setting they have in the Marvel universe. It is certainly not the most confusing of one of these stories. With the Phase 4 movies and TV shows they look to be going more into the multiple universes that are popular in the comic series and this seems to be one of those. Read Full Review
