    Clea and Doctor Strange are willing to do anything to save their love and eliminate the great threat that is General Strange. An issue that will leave them breathless.

    To cap it all off, the story ends with a drastic cliffhanger, one which will surely have massive repercussions in issues to come. This makes for a perfect issue that hits on all the right beats as the tension continues to bubble to the brim. This makes for a great story that readers will enjoy as there is a lot of payoff to everything thus far. Altogether, Doctor Strange #8 is another spectacular entry in a strong series.

    War begins as Doctor, Warlord, and General make their choices in Doctor Strange #8 with love and the universe hanging in the balance. Pieces that have been gathered over the past few years have come together to create a darkly dangerous picture, as this deeply emotional and creative series continues to thrive.

    If you pick up a Doctor Strange comic, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to read through some bizarre stories. If you pick up a Doctor Strange comic written by Jed MacKay, it’s all but guaranteed you’re about to read the most bizarre of the bizarre, a story that’s so far removed from normalcy it has you questioning the fabric of reality. Expectations are consistently subverted and Doctor Strange #8 is no different. It’s a comic that does what it can to weave in and out of predictability, with jaw-droppingly complex art from Pasqual Ferry and Heather Moore to boot. This issue is one you don’t want to miss.

    The Story: MacKay continues to craft a dark, engaging and entertaining story for Strange in this issue. The battle against his war-ravaged self continues to create some great interpersonal drama along with awesome action and magical thrills. I love the conflict with Clea and how Strange has to turn to dark forces to win. Knowing that all magic comes with a price in this universe, it will be interesting to see the cost Strange will have to pay for victory and what that will mean for everyone he cares about.

    The Art: Ferry delivers some fantastic art in the issue. The imagery is magical and works perfectly with the supernatural elements of the story.

    Doctor Strange #8 takes a step back on the pacing and epicness of General Strange’s plan to reignite war. Clea’s plan is dangerous but hastily executed, and Ferry’s art is amazing. However, it’s the last-minute arrival of Doctor Strange that steals the show.
