Grew up reading comic books in the 90's. Marvel fan at heart. Hulk, the Midnight Sons, and Marvel's cosmic universe are my favorites.

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

Doctor Strange's back is against wall as he faces the greatest challenge of his life: the death of magic. Doctor Strange #6 has arrived and ComiConverse Contributor Mitch Nissen is here with the supernatural skinny.

Sanctum Sanctorum has fallen.

The first issue in a new Doctor Strange story arc has begun in what looks to be a magic heavy month at Marvel Comics. Once again the wonderful team of Jason Aaron, Chris Bachalo, and Tim Townsend along with a few surprise guests bring us the latest chapter in the life of the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange #6.

The Story So Far

Spells are failing. Comrades in metaphysical arms are falling. Unimaginative, unyielding, unforgiving science is burning all magic away. Doctor Strange faces a foe unlike any he has ever faced before: the Empirikul.

Our dimension is the last bastion of sorcery left in the multiverse. The Empirikul are swift and employing extreme prejudice. They attack every font of magic. One by one the houses of magic fall, their users and servants along with them. Neither Heaven nor Hell, storybook or fairy tale is spared their wrath.

Doctor Strange at last faces the dreaded Empirikul. At the gates of his Sanctum Sanctorum the Doctor makes his last stand in a magic versus science showdown with the leader of these mystical burning inquisitors.

This is an action issue.

Artist Chris Bachalo shows us Doctor Voodoo, Scarlet Witch, Daimon Hellstorm, Shaman, Talisman, and Magik all under attack and those
