    ‘The Death of Doctor Strange’ hits the academy that bears his name, and while school might be out for the time being there are still lessons to be learned by a few of the student body. A fun and gorgeous issue delving into the backstory of two characters while also presenting a well-orchestrated artist jam that showcases a ton of the Academy’s student body.

    Strange Academy Presents The Death of Doctor Strange #1 (Scottie Young, Mike Del Mundo, Marco D’Alfonso. & VC’s Clayton Cowles) is a prime example of a creative team using an event to further the story and characters instead of becoming lost in the big picture.

    Strange Academy Presents: The Death of Doctor Strange #1 is an event tie-in in name alone. While there’s a loose connection to the main event at the very beginning of this tale, it does much more to further the primary Strange Academy line than push forth any of The Death of Doctor Strange’s narrative. While Young’s always been dynamite writing these teen sorcerers, it’s a real treat to see Del Mundo deliver artwork on one of Marvel’s most mystical titles.

    But Why Tho?

    Strange Academy Presents: Death of Doctor Strange #1 is a fun adventure comic that revels in weirdness. There is a heart to the issue as an absent mother begins to connect with her sons, but there is also brilliant comedic dialogue brought in by Young. The art is incredible and majestic, the whole comic celebratory towards artists. The main complaint is that although the kidnapping happens due to the death of Doctor Strange, the rest of the comic doesn’t focus on that at all. It would have been nice to see more of how the students were affected by the loss of the Sorcerer Supreme.

    Strange Academy Presents: The Death of Doctor Strange is a great read if you’re a fan of this series as it gives every main character a time to shine. This is also a no-brainer buy for fans of Mike del Mundo, but don’t expect a story that’ll have you riveted by any means.

    Major Spoilers

    Skottie Young did a decent job presenting a nice, fun little one-shot of Strange Academy. But it felt a little out of place in the larger context of the story. It Is still a solid pick-up if you enjoy these characters but might be a skip if you aren’t following the regular title.
