There are a few more variant covers in addition to the above.

Plus the main cover.

And, despite Knull’s several page speechifying, including a revelation that “they” created Dylan to destroy or defeat Knull, on queue does some damage to Knull.

In response to Knull’s god complex, e.g. believing he’s some kind of god of darkness, Doctor Strange transforms himself into a god of magic.

Doctor Strange then amps up the powers of X-Men’s Cyclops and Storm, Fantastic Four’s Invisible Woman and Human Torch, as well as the Avengers’ Thor. They all do some damage to Knull, but he remains standing strong. So, enter X-Men’s Jean Grey again without a codename.

…readers get a look at Knull’s origins including…

…that there is a god of light that Knull, as a self-professed god of darkness…

Compelling story with action and intrigue peppered in. Great art and solid cliffhanger. 8 out of 10.
