The Rundown: Wong stays at the Sanctum to protect Stephen while Victor makes his next move.

As the rest of the heroes go out into the endless night to strike back against the vampire hordes infecting the world, Wong stays behind at the Sanctum to watch over the vampire turned physical form of Stephen Strange while his astral self continues the fight.

At the same time, months of preparation from a mysterious but not entirely unknown benefactor allow Victor Strange to leave the crypt of shadows and take control of the only body available, his brother’s. As Victor emerges, he faces off against Wong who is prepared to fight the undead but at what cost.

The Story: MacKay crafts a scary and thrilling story in this issue. The action is great and I really enjoyed the slow buildup of suspense throughout as Wong deals with his mission to protect Stephen’s physical form while Victor schemes to take it. There is some great drama throughout the story and everything comes together in a thrilling confrontation between Wong and Victor that makes me excited to see what happens next.

The Art: Ferry delivers some atmospheric visual horror throughout the issue. I love the use of shadows throughout the issue and how every moment had weight visually to the emotional tone of the story.
