Death Of Doctor Strange Is Coming To Marvel Comics

The Marvel Universe loses its Sorcerer Supreme in Death of Doctor Strange #1

Since his first appearance in 1963 Doctor Stephen Strange has protected Earth from mystical threats, interdimensional invasions, and other untold horrors. This September, that ends, and the Marvel Universe will be left defenseless like never before in DEATH OF DOCTOR STRANGE! Written by Jed MacKay with Lee Garbett, this series will be a five-issue epic that will tell the final chapter in the life of Doctor Strange.


Able to defeat supernatural and interdimensional threats no other hero is equipped to handle, Strange was the only hero standing in the way of powerful new villains eager to claim Earth as their own. When he unexpectedly dies, who is left to protect Earth and keep the mystical evils at bay? And most importantly…who killed Stephen Strange? If he couldn’t stop them, who can? This series will dive into the mythos behind Doctor Strange. It will showcase his unique and vital position amongst Marvel’s heroes and ultimately transform the future.

What happens to the world if Doctor Strange isn’t in it?’ It’s a question that I’m excited to show people the answer to in DEATH OF DOCTOR STRANGE. Strange has been a Marvel fixture from the early days. Now, his time has run out and as a Strange fan, it’s been my bittersweet privilege to shepherd him through his last day and the effects that snowball out of it. We’ve cooked up a whale of a story to send Strange off with. I can’t wait for people to join us on it!
