CBR has the preview for FF #14. Man, the difference in Doom's portrayal here versus F4 is pretty stark.

According to CBR, he's stepping down in September after Fantastic Four #12 and FF #11. Karl Kesel's taking over on F4 and Lee Allred on FF to finish up the current story arc according to Fraction's outline; no info yet whether they'll stay on afterwards or we'll see another change of writers after the arc comes to its end in issue #16 of both titles.

*blows dust off comm* Anybody still here? Okay, after long months of nothing much to report, Doom finally gets a very brief appearance in this month's FF, though it's more of a setup for future developments than anything. So, some equally brief comments on the issue.

Newsarama has more on Fraction's plans for the Doom storyline in FF. I am... trying to stay optimistic? It could be good, but I'm nervous that Fraction's going to just revert back to old school Doom and sweep aside much of what Hickman's been doing with him.

USA Today has more on the new Fantastic Four and FF books. FF has a new line-up, Scott Lang, Medusa, the original She-Hulk and a new female character, and there's a snippet about potential future developments Doom-wise:

Ant-Man has an agenda of his own, too, in addition to protecting the world. He blames Doctor Doom for the death of his daughter and, with the power of the Fantastic Four and the Future Foundation, wonders what would happen if they declared war on Latveria and devoted all their time and resources to eliminating Doom once and for all.

...I really don't know enough about Fraction's personal take on Doom to decide whether I should be nervous about this storyline or not. Guess we can only wait and see. At least the fact he's following up on Avengers: Children's Crusade raises my hopes that we might get to see some continuation of the Doom/Wanda storyline.

CBR is reporting that Marvel has released some teasers revealing the new creative teams for Fantastic Four and FF. Looks like it's going to be Matt Fraction and Mark Bagley on Fantastic Four, and Fraction and Mike Allred on FF.

Well, I'm still not thrilled at the idea of Fraction as the writer, but I'm happier with these artists than the Larroca rumours, and pleasantly surprised to hear they're apparently going to continue with FF after Hickman's gone. I don't think I've actually seen Matt Fraction take a stab at writing Doctor Doom for more than a brief cameo, so it's hard to form much of an opinion on that front.

Wait and see time, I guess...

CBR has Marvel's solicts for October. Two possible Doom appearances for the month:

Details )

But the big news is that nine of Marvel's titles are ending in October in preparation for the Marvel NOW! relaunch in November. Both Fantastic Four and FF are on that list, and while the F4 will undoubtedly be getting a new #1 in some form, I'm slightly nervous that we're going to see the Future Foundation characters dropped.

I just hope the Richards kids don't go back to being ignored after Jonathan Hickman's gone. We need more of Valeria and her Uncle Doom.
