Who better to defend Earth from magical invaders than monster hunter ELSA BLOODSTONE?! Elsa is the best there is at what she does - tough, skilled and
clever enough to handle any problem...except her brother, CULLEN. They have issues, and they'll have to put them aside not only to protect Earth but also to welcome the latest addition to the Bloodstone clan: their long-lost SISTER! Her awesome set of powers and unique Blood gem have placed a target on her back, and the worst horrors from beyond this realm are on the hunt.

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jan 14, 2022

    The effects of Doctor Strange's death continue to plague the Marvel Universe, and monster hunter extraordinaire Elsa Bloodstone and her brother deal with some fallout that is very personal as the family Bloodstone gets just a bit bigger. A magically fun and well-crafted story centered on family and magical elements that is a delight from start to finish. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 10, 2022

    Death of Doctor Strange: Bloodstone is a wonderful surprise that will make you crave a Bloodstone comic series. It makes a case for Elsa's life being well worth capturing in its own series thanks to the dynamics with her siblings and the angle it takes on magic. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 11, 2022

    The Death of Doctor Strange: Bloodstone #1 serves as a departure from the main storyline by focusing on the one character equipped to handle magical chaos, as well as her own family issues. Given how the one-shot ends, I would not be opposed to an ongoing series centered on the exploits of the Bloodstone family. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gregory Ellner Jan 17, 2022

    This one-shot is a fun way to continue forth on our trek through the dawn of 2022, as well as a way to add to the existing lore of the Bloodstone family. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Jan 12, 2022

    The Death of Doctor Strange: Bloodstone #1 has a couple of good action scenes, but doesn't add any new layers to Elsa Bloodstone's character. The new Bloodstone family member and the twist at the end set up a new direction for Elsa, which hopefully will pay off in the near future. Read Full Review

    There's simply too much going on here, and not all of it is as interesting as the rest. Read Full Review
