Which was a funny bit. But this would be better.

    Of course, only a contentious old Brit like Ellis could get away with something like that.
    Wow....didn't know Colbert was into comic book lore. I have to agree that the One Nation Under Doom arc is probably one of my favorites also. The top of my list would be the arc of Astonishing Tales #8 leading into the gn Triumph and Torment, even if there is about a 16 year gap between them!

    Another one with a sword I like that medieval touch. They aren't all that practical but a mystically powered sword is something I would like to see as a permanent part of his weaponry.

    Really enjoyed Straczynski's sense of humor when it comes to Doom and international relations:

    Thanks K7PV5. For someone who jumped into writing comic books after being a showrunner on TV, JMS really adapted well. I think a "done in one" issue can be a challenge and he nails it here. Having JRjr on art helps a lot too. Few artists these days can work as fast as he does. IIRC for a brief spell he did 2 titles a month....so did Mark Bagley.

    another bit of humor by JMS from that issue, apparently Doom carries some loose change with him....for airport snack machines or pay phones?!





    Also, today I noticed something that has me worried. The Marvel store, Comixology and the Diamond Previews site have all removed any references of future issues of the Doctor Doom series. I hope this is not something ominous and maybe they are just trying to work out a new release schedule. I know Cantwell had tweeted that he was finished this first arc with scripts done up to issue #10. This was before the spread of the virus accelerated.

    I had pre-ordered issue #7 in case it was going to be switched to digital only. I have to see what happened to that transaction. I didn't see a credit show up.

    I didn't know Dr Doom had pockets.

    Chris Cantwell tweeted this morning: "Okay, this Wednesday I get to share some exciting news—news I’ve been dying to share, and probably the biggest news of my work in comic books thus far. I’m counting the minutes. It’s epic."

    And in response to a query about Dr Doom series continuing, posted: "It’s returning don’t worry!"

    So .... hopeful!

    Finally! Thanks DS. I was getting a bit worried but since the sales is still pretty healthy, I couldn't see how Marvel would discontinue it.

    RE: Alex Maleev Dr Doom art ... That's beautiful! Lucky spike! I want one too!

    Also want the Dr Doom license, but someone already has one here.

    Victor on the Cobra Doom Cycle:



    I saw this first on this thread from the G.I Joe website HissTank.com, which I found in turn searching for more info for the thread Was GI Joe originally set in the Marvel Universe?

    Which leads to my query, do you know of any fanfic Dr. Doom/Cobra crossover? If it were to happen, I would make the Baroness a Latverian, since to my knowledge her citizenship was never revealed, only that she came from a European aristocratic family. She could be a double agent in Cobra working for Doom. Destro would have to match his technological wits against Doom's, and Cobra Commander his leadership.
