The House of Shadows, originally from Strange Tales #120, returns! But instead of the usual banishment fate, it finds a home becoming Moon Knight's replacement Midnight Mission base of operations! In Moon Knight #9 [out 2 Mar], written by Jed MacKay, who thankfully seems to have enjoyed doing his historical research for his recent Doctor-Strange-related writing.

Devil's Reign: Superior Four #2 [out 16 Feb], includes a variant Doctor Octopus who is Sorcerer Supreme of his reality Earth-8968. Many Doctor Strange accoutrements here, including castings of Flames of the Faltine, Icy Tendrils of Ikthalon, and Mists of Morpheus.

The Vishanti summon Doctor Voodoo in Strange Academy #16 [out 23 Feb] to alert him that the cost of the school and the death of Dr. Strange have fractured the mystical balance. Tiger-appearing Hoggoth ain't looking too well.

Throg- that's the frog Thor- recruited Bats for a new Pet Avengers group in Thor #18 [out 20 Oct 2021] to help Thor find Mjolnir. They (with Doctor Strange) appear in the battle versus The God of Hammers/Mjolnir/God Tempest/Mangog (and Bats on the cover!) in Thor #22 [out 16 Feb].

Update: There was a charming kiddie Mighty Marvel Holiday Special: Year of the Wong Infinity Comic on the Marvel Unlimited app [out 1 Feb] by Amy Chu and E.J. Su. A sorcerous Wong saves the Lunar New Year parade from a Chinese-dragon-type thug of Dormammu.
