    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Jan 12, 2020

    Doctor Strange The End #1is an emotional kick-off to watching our heroes end, and I'm excited about what other one-shots have to offer. Doctor Strange has never been so compelling as he is in his end. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Brent Jackson Jan 29, 2020

    After reading Doctor Strange: The End #1, I knew I was going to score it high, but I wasn't sure if it was a 10/10. I don't give out a lot of perfect scores; because, I feel like it diminishes the value of the score. But after reading the issue I couldn't get the story out of my head. It brought up all kinds of ideas in my mind. I couldn't stop thinking of the world the creators made and the adventure they brought me along on. To me, that is the hallmark of a perfect score. I just can't it out of my mind, from the visuals to the dialogue. I caught myself thinking about it for a while. So Doctor Strange: The End #1 gets a 10/10 from me! Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Chris O'Connor Feb 5, 2020

    I really enjoyed this one shot. It took me a little to get my bearings but once I did it was a fun ride with some great humour laced throughout. As with others in this collection of "The End" titles, there is a kick to that pulsing red muscle in the chest" but it's such a lovely one that you don't mind the emotional twitch it may cause. A great standalone title that is worth a read. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 29, 2020

    Filipe Andrade does an excellent job with the art in this story. The tone of the art complements the story with its fluid characters and beautiful details. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Ian Cullen Feb 8, 2020

    I think at the end of the day. This story relies heavily on the reader actually knowing a bit about the world of Doctor Strange, which kind of works against it a little bit. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 29, 2020

    This is a good "The End" for Doctor Strange thanks to the subtle textures of the world around the character as he goes on his final journey. It serves as a means to prop up another character but by doing so it enriches the love and care of Doctor Strange. For a character with an ego such as his that's a nice sentiment to leave him.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 29, 2020

    It would be nice to see these to work on something that wasn't marketed as being as immense as this is supposed to be. This is the end of a major character. They're trying to bring to a close a series character with a life that's been going on for over half a century already. Granted, he will live on for decades or at least as long as Marvel does. But the idea of giving him a final adventure set in the far future really deserves some great final mystery as the character dives into the heart of the unknown. Williams' story is good, but it doesn't suit the end of such a powerful character. Given the right twist, these two would be really interesting together working on an entire series set in Doctor Strange's cyberpunk future. Read Full Review

    There's a special chemistry between these creators and characters, and it makes every one-shot one which they are featured a must-buy for fans of Marvel's magical universe. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - clayhinojosa10 Jan 29, 2020

    I may have high standards for a one-shot, but with ten additional pages I think Leah Williams could have fleshed out a little more of this story to make it coherent enough to answer the questions I had, but still appreciating it when a second issue eventually arrives and I'm wanting more.
