    Fear isn't the motivating factor here, it’s the convenience of VOD over theatre. Maybe 20-30 years ago you could credibly argue that theatres offered the best viewing experience possible. These days...

    Incidentally, I just had a look at the earlier posts on that Tumblr page, they do mention the source of the concept art after all. It was the (appropriately named) 2099 sketchbook:

    I'm honestly surprised to see such a significant sales boost for Doctor Doom #6. Was it because of Kang on the front cover? Regardless I'm glad the book managed to go out on such a high note before...

    Thanks for the link, I generally avoid Tumblr but occasionally something useful does get posted there. Just read this blog's write up on Doom 2099, overall quite a fair analysis criticising how the...

    Fascinating, I've never seen this concept art before. It looks like a scan from some sort of officially published art book. I don't suppose the page you found it on listed a source for the image?

    Whelp, better start preparing for the worst. Even if Marvel Comics comes back in any recognisable capacity it's going to be a coin toss to see if any of the current ongoings survive.

    If you want to read gut-wrenching stories about oppression then comics books about super heroes are probably a poor medium for it. By definition a super hero is one of the elite; the very best that...

    Eh, perhaps Alpha Flight's time was already over. A slightly campy Canadian super hero team was just a poor fit for the extreme attitudes and edgy overtones of the 90s. Even so, cringy storylines...

    It's not very sporting to depict all your opponents as ignorant or hypocritical. That's bad enough when some of the lower tier X-Men writers try to pull the same stunt when they can't find any other...

    Whether in real life or in comic books I find insincere personas off-putting. Projecting a character as all gay, all the time, is tiresome to read about. There must be something more behind the mask.

    That's quite an unusual question. A far as I'm aware though, no, I don't think Doom uses that sort of transformative magic. Even falling back on 'super science' Doom isn't really into forced...
