Jed MacKay and Lee Garbett will show ‘what happens to the world if Doctor Strange isn’t in it.’
In September, a Marvel character will once again face death’s door in The Death of Doctor Strange, a five-issue miniseries by Jed MacKay and Lee Garbett.
The Sorcerer Supreme will follow in the footsteps of Captain America, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Batman and many other heroes who were killed in the line of battle.
“‘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,” MacKay told Marvel.com. “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!”

Marvel will introduce the D616 System of play in 2022’s ‘Playtest Rulebook’ and look for fan feedback before the game’s official launch in 2023.
Marvel is getting back into role-playing games next year, as they’ve teamed up with author/game designer Matt Forbeck (Shotguns & Sorcery RPG, The Marvel Encyclopedia) to create the Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game.
They’ll start with the “Playtest Rulebook,” which will define the rules of play — the cleverly titled “D616 System” — and include profiles so fans can play as their Marvel favorites or create their own Marvel hero. According to Marvel, they’ll be looking for feedback from fans on the playtest rules before the game’s full release in 2023.
“As a lifelong Marvel fan and gamer, this project is a dream come true,” Forbeck told Marvel.com. “Fortunately, after writing a couple editions of The Marvel Encyclopedia and designing tabletop games professionally for over 30 years, I feel ready to help make this the best Marvel TTRPG experience ever. I can’t wait for everyone to have the chance to play it!”
