Who Will Become the New Sorcerer Supreme? Marvel Comics Previews Cover for “Death of Doctor Strange #4”

With Doctor Strange’s story about to come to an end in the Marvel Comics, one has to wonder, who will be the next Sorcerer Supreme? Today, Marvel has teased the cover of issue #4 in the forthcoming series Death of Doctor Strange.

What’s Happening:

  • Debuting later this month, Marvel Comics’ Death Of Doctor Strange will tell the final saga in the life of the Sorcerer Supreme!
  • Written by Jed MacKay with art by Lee Garbett, this five-issue epic will not only deal with the complex mystery behind Strange’s murder, but also introduce the dangerous mystical and other-dimensional threats that will be unleashed in his absence.
  • Today, Marvel is giving fans a sneak peek at the cover of Death Of Doctor Strange #4 which debuts in December. This issue reveals which hero will step up to resume the duties of the Sorcerer Supreme!

  • Along with the five-issue arc, two new one-shots dealing with the impact Doctor Strange’s death has on the wider Marvel Universe will be available in December:
    • Death of Doctor Strange: Blade 
    • Death Of Doctor Strange: X-men/Black Knight

About Death of Doctor Strange: Blade: 

  • Writer Danny Lore and artist Dylann Burnett explore the consequences for Marvel’s vampire community in this new one-shot.
  • “A long time ago, Doctor Strange destroyed every vampire in the world with one spell, including Dracula. Now, with Strange dead, Dracula’s Vampire Nation celebrates! That doesn’t sit too well with Strange’s old friend, and new Vampire Nation sheriff, Blade the Vampire Hunter! But what happens when interlopers from another dimension invade the vamp’s territory and put all the bloodsuckers’ lives at risk? Will Blade do his duty to protect them? Or will he help make sure the vamps stay wiped out this time?”

About Death Of Doctor Strange: X-men/Black Knight: 

  • Writer Si Spurrier and Bob Quinn reunite for a thrilling crossover issue that will pick up on the aftermath of Spurrier’s critically acclaimed Black Knight: Curse Of The Ebony Blade series.
  • “All manner of vile extradimensional foes are invading Earth following the collapse of Doctor Strange’s magical safeguards for the planet. Dane Whitman, the Black Knight, and his daughter Jacks, now sharing the burden of the Ebony Blade with her father, ride off to confront a terrible evil attacking London – the X-MEN?! Krakoa’s greatest heroes have been transformed – but by what?! Jacks, Dane and Faiza Hussain – wielder of the mighty sword Excalibur – must team up to save the X-Men before an even deadlier threat destroys them all!”
