Friday's Headlines | Marvel Cancels Dr. Strange Title

The current volume of Marvel Comics' ongoing Doctor Strange comic book series has come to a somewhat surprising end with this week's Dr. Strange #6. The surprise finale was confirmed in a letter from series writer Mark Waid and artist Kev Walker on the final page of the issue.

In the now-concluded volume, Doctor Strange leaned into the first part of his moniker, serving as a doctor in a supernatural hospital, helping aid the ailments of spirits and monsters, while combining both his magical prowess and medical training.

"Dear reader, this arc of Dr. Strange may be coming to a close, but fear not. The Sorcerer Supreme's adventures are far from over," reads the foreword to the statements from Waid and Walker. "And as Doctor Strange embarks on his next chapter, we want to say thank you to everyone who joined us on this journey."
