Below is the official synopsis for the upcoming limited series.
Doctor Stephen Strange is the Master of the Mystic Arts. Earth's Sorcerer Supreme. A one-man barrier protecting our world from all the nightmares, demons and warlords out there in dimensions beyond our comprehension. So what happens...when Doctor Strange is murdered? As his friends mourn -- and his enemies rage at having been deprived of the killing blow -- dark forces set their sights on an unprotected Earth. The Avengers...the Fantastic Four...all of our mightiest heroes are woefully out of their depth. Now, as the world's remaining magicians race to protect our world from an unimaginable sorcerous threat, one very surprising investigator must unravel the mystery of Doctor Strange's murder. But can he do it before his own time runs out?
"'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," Jed 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!"
"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," Artist Lee Garbett said. "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!"
Doctor Stephen Strange is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, and created by Steve Ditko.
