Press Release

Today, Marvel Comics has revealed Doctor Strange will die…and it all starts in Death of Doctor Strange #1 this September!

“Strange has been a Marvel fixture from the early days, but 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,” MacKay said. “We’ve cooked up a whale of a story to send Strange off with, and I can’t wait for people to join us on it!”

“Doctor Strange has long been top of my ‘most coveted character’ list. To finally get chance to draw him in such a momentous series is… well, magic,” Garbett said. “I couldn’t be more excited for the project and for everyone to see what we’ve got in store for Stephen and those closest to him. Jed’s conjured the perfect finale for Doctor Strange – and it’s a real third eye-opener! See you in September!”

So what’s it about?

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 rousing journey will dive into the mythos behind Doctor Strange, showcasing his unique—and vital—position amongst Marvel’s heroes and ultimately transform the future.

MacKay has an incredibly busy year as he’s launching a new Moon Knight series this July, has Infinite Destinies releasing all summer, plus his duties on Magic at BOOM! Studios just to name a few.
