This ain’t Ben Reilly’s first rodeo as Spider-Man, but he’s never had to deal with the death of the Sorcerer Supreme and what it does to New York City. Part of Strange’s will and testament was to ask Spidey to deal with particular problems… Is BEN up to it? Black Cat isn’t a big Ben fan, so is she riding shotgun because she owes Strange to keep an eye on Ben, or to sabotage Ben?!

    The Odd Couple meets magical shenanigans as the loss of Doctor Strange continues to have large repercussions on so many aspects within the Marvel Universe, and Spider-Man & Black Cat are on the case. Every single bit of this issue is a true show of how tie-in comics should and can work, doing their own unique fun thing while keeping the spirit of the main event intact along the way (it helps when the event writer also does a tie-in).

    Death of Doctor Strange: Spider-Man is an enjoyable read, not difficult to follow, and should not be missed. If rumors are true that a new sorcerer supreme is going to be unveiled in 2022 and our beloved Doctor is going on ice. This is a good send-off, a proper goodbye for the time to come. I for one will be counting down the months or years till the good Doctor retakes his mantel as the SORCERER SUPREME Read Full Review

    The Death of Doctor Strange: Spider-Man is a great example of how tie-in stories can build off an event in clever ways while developing characters. In a book that's about Spider-Man, Black Cat, and by association Doctor Strange, the creative team has captured the heart and soul of these characters very well. Read Full Review

    If you'd like a pretty good Ben Reilly story, or a pretty good Black Cat story, or even if you're interested in some random minutiae of Stephen Strange's life, this is what you need. If you're interested in the larger story and where it's going, this won't quite fill your prescription. Read Full Review
