Earlier this summer Marvel announced the upcoming launch of The Death of Doctor Strange, a new five-issue miniseries from writer Jed MacKay (Black Cat, Moon Knight) and artist Lee Garbett (Captain Marvel), and now the publisher has shared a sneak peek trailer for the hotly-anticipated tale, which will see the Marvel Universe under threat following the tragic fate of the Sorcerer Supreme.
“‘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 The 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!”
THE DEATH OF DOCTOR STRANGE is 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 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.
The Death of Doctor Strange #1 is set for release on September 22nd.
