The Rundown: Strange’s death will bring old friends back and reveal new, more powerful enemies.

In the aftermath of Doctor Strange’s death, his enemies begin to make their moves across the world and across dimensions as well. From Aggamon to Umar, the foes of Strange have created their own footholds on Earth. At the same time, the aspect of Strange that the Sorcerer Supreme created in the event of his death tells those assembled why he is there and what he is tasked with doing. Unfortunately, a call from the Avengers will put his investigation into his own murder on hold.

Stephen suddenly receives a call from an old friend. One whose presence at the Sanctum will reveal that there is a darker meaning to the villains’ presence on Earth. Unfortunately, her escape leads their enemies straight to the doors of the Sanctum Sanctorum. Strange and company will also find that they do not stand alone against an enemy they’ve never faced before.

The Story: MacKay crafts an engaging and thrilling story in this issue. The aspect of Strange is a great callback to how the character has been portrayed in the past and the vocal inflections and speech patterns are entertaining. Having this character interact with the other ones has some comedic elements that I enjoyed. I was also impressed with the villains in the issue as well and cannot wait to see what happens next.

The Art: Lee Garbett does great work with the art in the issue. The action is thrilling and visually entertaining, but I love the contrast between the contemporary characters and Strange’s classic look.
