Legendary creators Jonathan Hickman (ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN, G.O.D.S.) and Sanford Greene (Bitter Root) send Doctor Doom on a journey unlike any he has undertaken before! With Valeria Richards at his side, Doom goes on a quest to harness more power than any human has ever wielded before in order to try to stop Galactus from bringing about the death of the universe!

Marvel Comics has once again proven that they are not afraid to push the boundaries of the superhero genre with their latest one-shot, “Doom #1”. This comic is a testament to the enduring appeal of Doctor Doom, the most punk rock character in the Marvel Universe, who doesn’t have to let you know by attaching the word “punk” at the end of his name because Doom’s actions speak for themselves. Doom’s defiance and his desire to stand out from the crowd are on full display in this epic one shot.

“Doom #1” is a narrative tour de force that takes the reader on a journey through the Marvel Universe as it stands on the brink of annihilation, again. The stakes could not be higher: Doom alone must save the universe from the insatiable hunger of Galactus. The creative team of Jonathan Hickman and Sanford Greene has crafted a story that is both grand in scale and intimate in its examination of Doom’s character.

The artwork by Sanford Greene is magically spectacular, capturing the immense scale of the conflict between Doom and Galactus. Each panel is meticulously crafted, with dynamic spreads that demand the reader’s attention and admiration. The art not only complements the story but elevates it, creating a visual feast that is rare in comics today.

What sets “Doom #1” apart is its refusal to provide a neat conclusion. The story ends on a cliffhanger, with Doom facing off against Galactus in a final battle that is sure to have readers clamoring for more. This bold narrative choice is emblematic of Doom’s character: he is not one to go quietly into the night, and neither is this story.

For fans of Doctor Doom, this comic is an absolute must-read. It captures everything that makes Doom such a compelling character: his intelligence, his power, and, most importantly, his unyielding spirit. Even if you’re not a die-hard fan, “Doom #1” offers a self-contained story that is accessible, engaging, and visually stunning.

In a world where comic book stories can often feel formulaic, “Doom #1” stands out as a defiant act of creativity. It is a reminder that in the hands of talented creators, comic books can be works of art that challenge, inspire, and entertain. So, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of “Doom #1”. It’s not just a great comic; it’s a celebration of everything that shows you what makes Doctor Doom so cool and Marvel Comics all-time ruffian.
