A long time ago, Doctor Strange destroyed every vampire in the world with one spell, including Dracula.Now, with Strange dead, Dracula's Vampire Nation celebrates!
That doesn't sit too well with Strange's old friend, and new Vampire Nation sheriff, Blade the Vampire Hunter! But what happens when interlopers from another dimension invade the vamp's territory and put all the bloodsuckers' lives at risk? Will Blade do his duty to protect them? Or will he help make sure the vamps stay wiped out this time?

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Dec 8, 2021

    The Death of Doctor Strange: Blade #1 explores the Daywalker's state of mind and provides plenty of swordfights and vampire slaying. I highly recommend picking it up; hopefully, these one-shots lead to Blade getting his own series. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Dec 14, 2021

    Death Of Doctor Strange: Blade is a perfect example of how to do tie-in stories to events, maintaining the flavor and appeal of a character/world while tying them into the larger events. Everything about this book feels so unique and stylish, befitting the title character. This is a creative team and concept that Marvel most assuredly needs to tap for the inevitable ongoing Blade series that will come out closer to the new film. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 8, 2021

    Death of Doctor Strange: Blade is a fun issue that revels in the pure joy Dracula is having juxtaposed with Blade's reluctance to be there at all. It's not a must-read tie-in to the main event, but it offers up some cool creature design and further exploration of Blade's new role as Dracula's sheriff. Read Full Review

    The Death of Doctor Strange: Blade #1 makes a strong case for these creators continuing their story, but even if they don't this one-shot is a surprisingly satisfying treat. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Tim Chuma Dec 13, 2021

    I would recommend this one even if you were only to dip in and out of the main storyline as you can easily pick up what is going on here without buying all the comics in the series. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Zach B. Dec 9, 2021

    The book looks great and if you're a big Blade fan you might enjoy the stylish action. But it does nothing for new Blade readers and has precious little to do with the Death of Doctor Strange event. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Weird Science Jim Dec 11, 2021

    The Death of Doctor Strange: Blade is an unnecessary tie-in issue that gets stuck between the event and showing more of Vampire Nation and does neither justice. Danny Lore gets very wordy for an issue without a lot going on, and even Dylan Burnett's art can't save it. Read Full Review
