The Rundown: Strange takes on the General, but how far will he go to stop him?
Strange takes on General Strange as Clea attempts to rescue her sister from the spell that turned her into one of General Strange’s minions. At the same time, Wong and the rest of W.A.N.D. look for a way to reverse what Strange has done and save him from the power he’s now using.
General Strange is willing to kill anyone, including himself and Clea to complete his goal and uses something to take Stephen’s power from him to make him vulnerable. Unfortunately, this gives Clea time to do something bold and Stephen time to call in some help.
The Story: A thrilling, intense and entertaining issue from MacKay. The story takes some compelling twists and turns throughout and the rise in suspense makes every moment engaging to the reader. I was immersed in every moment between the Strange’s as well as Clea’s attempts to save her baby sister. Everything in the issue, including the ending, makes me want to see what happens next.
The Art: I continue to love the otherworldly visual style of Ferry. The art brilliantly utilizes the magic of the characters to create visually stunning moments throughout the issue.
