"The Death of Doctor Strange will be reaching its conclusion at #5, but it's end will be the beginning for a whole new set of stories on the magic side of the Marvel universe," MacKay said.

Also coming in January will be DEATH OF DOCTOR STRANGE: BLOODSTONE. Written by Tini Howard, currently redefining mutant magic in the pages of EXCALIBUR, with art by Ig Guara, this tie-in one shot will star the Bloodstone family.

Who better to defend Earth from magical invaders than monster hunter Elsa Bloodstone? Elsa is the best there is at what she does — tough, skilled and clever enough to handle any problem…except her brother, Cullen. The siblings will have to put their issues aside not only to protect Earth but also to welcome the latest addition to the Bloodstone clan: their long-lost SISTER! Her awesome set of powers and unique Blood gem have placed a target on her back, and the worst horrors from beyond this realm are on the hunt.
