Marvel Comics has released a new trailer for the upcoming miniseries Death of Doctor Strange. Announced in June, the five-issue series will feature multiple spin-offs as well as introduce The Three Mothers. Launching September 22nd, series writer Jed MacKay had this to say about the miniseries:
“‘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,” MacKay said. “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. 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!”
Check out the trailer below.
Garbett added, “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.”
“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!”
