    The Death Of Doctor Strange comes to an emotionally fitting ending, easily cementing itself as one of the best modern Doctor Strange stories as it puts a spotlight and stamp upon the character while paving the road for what is next. This is a magically gorgeous book that understands how to handle magic and the characters that wield it while showing a deep love for the Marvel Universe and its characters as a whole.

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 26, 2022

    This has been one of the best Doctor Strange stories I've ever read, and if you're looking to read something featuring the good doctor before Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, you can't go wrong with this one. Read Full Review

    Garbett delivers some great on every page of this issue. The characters look great and the style is perfect for both the character moments and the big action moments as well. Read Full Review

    The mystery is solved, and while the ending sorta missed its mark, I have the utmost faith in MacKay to deliver with the upcoming series based around Clea. So much potential to explore, I just hope to see Jed show that not only is Clea not Stephen, but shes also not human. Sure, shes humanoid, but her entire existence was in a dimension where darkness and evil magic was the status quo, so Clea will provide a totally unique perspective for our dimensional firmament.

    The Death of Doctor Strange #5 was a good and fitting end to a cool event. It's a shame that Marvel spoiled the ending ahead of time, but Jed MacKay provides enough twists and turns to make it more about the journey… and the journey really is only just beginning! Read Full Review

    The Death of Doctor Strange #5 is a nice end to a surprisingly well-done mini-event. For what it's worth, you don't have to read all the tie-in issues to this story. The main series presents the story without needing all the back matter. However, I will miss Ditko Doc as he was just starting to get his own distinctive voice. Read Full Review
