Nick Spencer Returns to Secret Empire for Doctor Strange: Damnation

Nick Spencer is co-writer with Donny Cates on the upcoming Doctor Strange: Damnation weekly mini-series running through February and March 2018. It's the first Marvel comic that Spencer has written since Secret Empire concluded. But it looks like he can't quite let it go…

With artwork from Rod Reis, the first issue looks back to New York under the Darkforce Dimension…

Doctor Strange: Damnation

…the Hydra takeover of the USA…. Doctor Strange: Damnation

…the destruction of Las Vegas…

Doctor Strange: Damnation

…and the destruction of Las Vegas. There is an awful lot to memorialise, and Doctor Strange: Damnation looks like it will be picking up the pieces.

The city of sin gets its biggest sinner yet. When Doctor Strange raises Las Vegas up from its destruction during SECRET EMPIRE, he inadvertently opens a big door for the embodiment of evil, MEPHISTO! The devilish villain takes the city for himself and sets his sights on the rest of the world. It's going to take heroes from all over the Marvel Universe to defeat him, but there's nothing simple about fighting the lord of Hell.

• Mephisto has taken up some major real estate in Las Vegas, but he's not going to stop there. He's got the rest of Earth on his "TO GET" list and only Doctor Strange can stop him.
•  The only downside? Strange went into Mephisto's Hotel Inferno to confront him and has not been seen since.
•  Add the fact that the devilish villain has already corrupted several Avengers, and Wong and his rag-tag group of mystical heroes look like they're in serious trouble.
