    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 19, 2022

    Death of Doctor Strange: X-Men/Black Knight #1 is an adventure of the highest order. Loud and intense, Spurrier, Quinn, and Silva deliver a terrifying fantasy tale that still contains lovely moments of hope.

It is part of a larger event, but personal and specific to this one particular comic. Read Full Review

It adds a new twist to Jacks' character and gives Faiza Hussain some screen time, but seems unnecessary in the current avalanche of one-shots that are tied into the main story. Read Full Review
