    Most of my review is in my damnation review. This volume is basically all of that. So it's about Mephisto bringing hell on earth and strange stopping it. So go read that review to see what I thought. For the last issue, which is NOT in Damnation collection, this is the final issue Donny Cates writes and honestly it's his best one. It's a bitter sweet goodbye, giving us some great human moments with Strange. However, it's the Spider-man moments that make this issue fantastic.

It's a bitter sweet goodbye, giving us some great human moments with Strange. However, it's the Spider-man moments that make this issue fantastic. Peter and Strange's friendship is interesting, unique, and a lot of fun. This is both a funny issue and a sad one because you want Donny to stay on Strange once it's over. But for what it is, this two volume run was very solid and for that alone I'm pushing this to the same rating as volume 1. A 4 out of 5.

    Peter Parker's face when Strange asks him if he wants to be able to talk to spiders is worth all of the stars.

    The bad thing about this volume is it intertwines with another title (also written by Cates). The good thing is he did a nice job of filling you in if you haven't read it. Love the tone of this. It reminds me of Fraction's Hawkeye mini-series. Strange clearly has his own issues, and like the best Marvel characters, he's human, and makes mistakes. There's a snarky attitude about the whole thing, so it's a little bit funny, usually at the expense of Stephen, which just makes him even more relatabl The bad thing about this volume is it intertwines with another title (also written by Cates).

Strange clearly has his own issues, and like the best Marvel characters, he's human, and makes mistakes. There's a snarky attitude about the whole thing, so it's a little bit funny, usually at the expense of Stephen, which just makes him even more relatable and not this stoic, all-power and all-knowing super magician that never makes a mistake. The art isn't bad, a little "scratchy" looking and sort of fits. It's David Aja-ish, again, like Fraction's Hawkeye. Hopefully the upcoming hardcover collection for Cates' run will have both series in reading order.

    Probably not the strongest of stories. I felt like the previous damnation novel was better in a way. Still good fun. Interesting to see where they take it next. Definitely smell a reboot coming on.

    Niko Henrichon and Donny Cates... beautiful combo. I love Niko's work, and this is no exception.

    This Volume runs parallel to the Damnation event, but it's still able to be understood, for the most part. After the events of Secret Empire, Las Vegas is still a disaster area after the Hydra attacks. Strange, seemingly ignoring the cost of magic, but vigilant anyways, goes to the site, and thoroughly resurrects not only the entire city, but all the people who were in it. However, something else comes back with everything, something Strange did not want to see: Hotel Inferno, a demonically infl This Volume runs parallel to the Damnation event, but it's still able to be understood, for the most part. After the events of Secret Empire, Las Vegas is still a disaster area after the Hydra attacks. Strange, seemingly ignoring the cost of magic, but vigilant anyways, goes to the site, and thoroughly resurrects not only the entire city, but all the people who were in it. However, something else comes back with everything, something Strange did not want to see: Hotel Inferno, a demonically influenced hotel run by Mephisto. The devil is claiming that the souls were all his already, but with resurrection, he has lost them. Enter a high-stakes card game between the two of them. Winner takes all! When Strange is caught cheating at the game, he is beaten and captured. Wong contacts him and tells him that the Midnight Sons (Blade, Doctor Voodoo, Elsa Bloodstone, Ghost Rider, Iron Fist, and Man-Thing) are on the way to rescue him. They can't get to him, so Clea, Loki and Scarlet Witch come to free him. The city is being influenced by hell and people are turning demonic, including several of the Avengers, who appear to have a head much like Ghost Rider. The battle is heavy, and Strange loses his body to Mephisto as well. But all is not lost... all the possessed people's spirits are in the Realm Between. Strange gathers the team up, and through a double cross against Dormammu, Strange saves the day (though apparently, this scene is in the main Damnation title, which I need to read soon!) The final issue in this Volume brings back Zelma and covers the two of them addressing the drama that has been building for a while. Do they end up together? No, but the friendship is at least rekindled. This title will launch again with Volume 1 soon. What's next for the Sorcerer Supreme? Recommend.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Solid read. A bit more supernatural than I like, but it's Doctor Strange, so what do I expect, right? I really liked watching Strange evolve--and finally really face all the problems he's had in the past year and move beyond them (at least, by this graphic novel's end). Bats (the ghost dog) was definitely my favorite part of this story. His straightforward attitude was the perfect foil for Doctor Strange's brooding. This story also had some solid twists and turns, and it's got me curious to read Solid read. A bit more supernatural than I like, but it's Doctor Strange, so what do I expect, right?

Bats (the ghost dog) was definitely my favorite part of this story. His straightforward attitude was the perfect foil for Doctor Strange's brooding. This story also had some solid twists and turns, and it's got me curious to read that whole "Damnation" story arc... which is saying something, since I'm generally more of a DC fan. The best issue, however, was definitely the last one: Spider-Man's cameo was beyond hilarious. I forget why I loved Spider-Man growing up until he sneaks his way into a different comic, and then I'm like, "That's right! He's hilarious, relatable, and awesome!" The mini comic where he talked to a spider... that was some dark humor. But, man, if I wasn't chuckling through the whole thing! I'm glad that we finally got some closure with Zelma, as well. I liked her character, but I think it's also time to move beyond the drama and venture toward something else. Doctor Strange deserves a fresh start, and that's what I'm looking forward to in future comics starring the Sorcerer Supreme. But these last two graphic novels, headed by Donny Cates, were spectacular reads: funny at times, but also undeniably grounded with enough magic to keep your imagination spinning. Thank you, Cates. I look forward to seeing what you do with other titles in the future.

    With this being tie in issues to another Dr. Strange event, at times one feels like they lack the full story.

    If you've read the Damnation mini-event, you've read all but one of these issues. The last is Cates's farewell to the series, and it's great. Damnation was a good event, too, for the record.
