Great dilemma. And a story told with some BIG concepts. The twist at the end is a bit weak, but there's no doubt that this a great chapter, overall, flawed or not. 9/10

  I like how Strange had to accept death in order to vanquish it. It was well done.

  I can only imagine the jealousy and hatred enveloping within Thanos. Death won't speak to him, and yet has incredible dialogue with Dr. Strange.

  I love how this is the same death that Thanos is in love with.

  Some heavy metal band needs to turn this into a concept album. Just take out the dialogue and make a song for each page. Include the pages so that the listener can follow along.
Loved the callback to the Eternity stories, stuff like that is why I love the order.

  Beautiful. Strange's stories have not been this great and imaginative since Ditko left.

  I think this is the first time in the order there has been a page with no words on it. With art this good, who needs words.

  These guys must have listened to a lot of prog rock. Worth the wait for Brunner's pencils and layouts. It's easy to forget what an MVP Giordano could be with a set of brushes.

  Sweet! Immortality! I'm really liking Brunner's artwork! Best since Steranko!

  Frank Brunner, for delivering an issue like this one, with stunning visuals, I forgive you for missing the deadline last issue. This was stunning from cover to cover.

Inside the Orb of Aggamotto, nothing is real. But Doc, there's nothing to get hung about. Thanks to accepting, then conquering death, you can now think of those Strawberry Fields....Forever!

5 stars! The showdown with Silver Dagger will probably be anti-climatic after this.

  Seems very convenient that this was all a test. Like, I doubt that Silver Dagger is in on it, so he just happened to come along and stab Strange, therefore making him use the Orb and get sucked into it. I wonder if, without Silver Dagger, the Orb would have one day just ambushed Strange.
Oh, and this was amazing.
