    COMICON - Scott Redmond Nov 9, 2021

    'The Death of Doctor Strange' hits the academy that bears his name, and while school might be out for the time being there are still lessons to be learned by a few of the student body. A fun and gorgeous issue delving into the backstory of two characters while also presenting a well-orchestrated artist jam that showcases a ton of the Academy's student body. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 3, 2021

    Mike Del Mundo delivers some beautiful art in the main story. The characters are visually dynamic and the action is great. The short interludes feature some amazing artists who deliver awesome visuals to each story. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Gabriel De Jesus Nov 4, 2021

    Strange Academy Presents The Death of Doctor Strange #1 (Scottie Young, Mike Del Mundo, Marco DAlfonso. & VCs Clayton Cowles) is a prime example of a creative team using an event to further the story and characters instead of becoming lost in the big picture. Read Full Review

    While Young's always been dynamite writing these teen sorcerers, it's a real treat to see Del Mundo deliver artwork on one of Marvel's most mystical titles. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Nov 1, 2021

    Strange Academy Presents: Death of Doctor Strange #1 is a fun adventure comic that revels in weirdness. There is a heart to the issue as an absent mother begins to connect with her sons, but there is also brilliant comedic dialogue brought in by Young. The art is incredible and majestic, the whole comic celebratory towards artists. The main complaint is that although the kidnapping happens due to the death of Doctor Strange, the rest of the comic doesnt focus on that at all. It would have been nice to see more of how the students were affected by the loss of the Sorcerer Supreme. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 1, 2021

    Strange Academy Presents: The Death of Doctor Strange is a great read if you're a fan of this series as it gives every main character a time to shine. This is also a no-brainer buy for fans of Mike del Mundo, but don't expect a story that'll have you riveted by any means. Read Full Review
