The Rundown: Stephen and Clea attend a wedding with some dangerous guests and a more dangerous wedding crasher.

It is the day of Umar the Unrelenting’s wedding to Tiboro and Stephen and Clea are invited. Against their better judgment, they decide to attend even with the suspicion still on Clea for the murders of two of the people responsible for killing Stephen.

As they attend the wedding and exchange insults and accusations with the bride and groom, Dormammu arrives to officiate. In the wake of the ceremony, the festivities are interrupted by the arrival of the person who has been killing magical entities across the realms. Someone with a personal connection to Stephen Strange.

The Story: MacKay crafts an entertaining and thrilling tale in this issue. Bringing together Strange and two of the people who murdered him was intriguing and revealing who has been killing Strange’s killers was handled brilliantly. I continue to love the moments between Stephen and Clea and their reactions to the wedding were entertaining as well. The story has some fun moments throughout and the final reveal makes me excited to see what happens next.

The Art: Ferry delivers some beautiful art in the issue. The visuals have a wonderful, other-worldly look to them as if everything is made of mist and it works really well with the characters and the story being told.
