Someone has to stop the giant mystical threat devouring all magic, and it can't be the Avengers. Or the Fantastic Four. Or the X-Men. It'll take someone with the greatest skills and command over the mystic arts to save us all. It'll take the Sorcerer Supreme. But who will that be?!

    All the pieces are coming together as 'The Death of Doctor Strange' enters the endgame, never leaving behind its character moment-heavy nature which makes the book work so well. All the fun aspects of a murder mystery reveal are captured perfectly here, with the time capsule former Stephen Strange going all in as the theatrical investigator. The magical line of Marvel has been given new beautiful fun life, giving it the most solid foundation its had in years. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - batbrad Dec 31, 2021

    Coming off the heels of the last issue, Doctor Stranges time-displaced younger self is ready to attack suspect #1 Baron Mordo. In a nice twist what ends up happening is instead of a battle we get an engaging conversation. Even though this is a younger version of Doctor Strange, he stills has a history with the Baron. They did both train under the Ancient One. So it makes sense that instead of a fight the Baron defiantly explains why he couldnt have killed Doctor Strange. Read Full Review

    MacKay and Garbett continue with the mystery of who killed the good doctor, and while there are some things that have been underwhelming, the humor and art has made up for the shortcomings, so Im eagerly awaiting the ending as well as Cleas upcoming series. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 29, 2021

    Death of Doctor Strange #4 is a very unexpected issue in many ways. With one issue to go, it reveals who the murderer is. But, it's done in a way that's an unexpected narrative throwback. It adds to the pulp and pop sense of the comic that has been underlying since it launched. While it doesn't have that major moment where the next Sorcerer Supreme stands up, it brings a fun sense to the page delivering a murder mystery that's an homage to what has come before.

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene Jan 6, 2022

    As stated at the top, who killed Stephen Strange is much less important than the tie-in books and events that result from his death. I'm quite excited to see where the story of the Three Mothers goes, because these are some new characters to fear and be excited about all at the same time. Read Full Review

    They're trying to flesh out a character's decades-long history within the span of just a few issues, and it's just not clicking. Read Full Review
