REVIEW: Denouement in The Death of Doctor Strange #4
In The Death of Doctor Strange #4 by Jed MacKay, Lee Garbett, Antonio Fabela, and Cory Petit, with a main cover by Kaare Andrews, we get denouement in the vein of a classic murder mystery… right down to the drawing room reveal, Marvel Blog True Believers!
The Death of Doctor Strange #4
In this issue, we get another three chapters in the ongoing Death of Doctor Strange storyline (and I assume that The Death of Doctor Strange #5, the conclusive issue, will feature three more chapters, making this a tale thirteen chapters in length… which seems appropriate for the death of the Sorcerer Supreme, doesn’t it).
I especially enjoyed the middle chapter of this issue, which saw the temporal excerpt of Doctor Strange taking a walk with Bats the ghost dog.
This was a very sweet sequence, and it spoke to the powerful relationship between a dog and their human (Bats makes it clear that this is the way the relationship works, Marvel Blog True Believers).
And as for denouement regarding who is responsible for Strange’s murder, which mostly came in the first and third chapters, they are intriguing indeed! I especially enjoyed the visuals in the third chapter of this story, which saw Strange chewing up the scenery as he laid out just whodunnit.
