The Death of Doctor Strange Tie-In Comics Revealed
In a post made to the official Marvel website on Friday, July 9th, 2021, some of the details about the comic book tie-ins to the upcoming The Death of Doctor Strange event were revealed.
Scheduled for release in October 2021, these tie-ins will follow up on the September 22nd, 2021 passing of Strange. Please note that the full creative line-ups for these comics were not included on the Marvel website, as no letterers or colorists are listed.
We Hardly Knew Ye
A Marvel Comics character biting the dust just before they make their return to the big screen, who would have thought it could happen (answer: Wolverine).
But apparently, that’s what’s happening to Strange.
After The Death of Doctor Strange #1 by Jed McKay and Lee Garbett, with a main cover by Kaare Andrews (Spider-Man: Reign), is released on September 22nd, 2021, the second issue of the series (from the same creator lineup) will arrive on October 20th, 2021.
Then, the following week, on October 27th, two tie-in issues will be released: The Death of Doctor Strange: Avengers #1 by Alex Paknadel and Ryan Bodenheim, with a main cover by Steve Skorce, and Strange Academy Presents: Death of Doctor Strange #1 by Skottie Young and Mike Del Mundo, with a main cover by Humberto Ramos.
Another One Bites the Dust
But Dr. Strange isn’t the only one with both an upcoming movie and a death sentence: Wanda, A.K.A. the Scarlet Witch, was recently murdered during a mutant publicity stunt, aka the Krakoa Gala, aka the Hellfire Gala.
Will both Dr. Strange and Wanda be resurrected in time for the debut of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in which both characters will appear, portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen respectively? We’ve got a hunch, Marvel Blog True Believers!
