I'm not dead! And neither is this comm. (I'm just woefully failing at keeping track of what's going on in comics at the moment.) This post is a bit of a multi-recap of several recent comics, partly because my comic shop got one of them in late, and partly because the story's - slightly - more comprehensible taken in larger chunks. Spoilers below the cuts.

I haven't been following this title since the last Doom cameo I reviewed which was, er, all the way back in issue #7, so given the density of Hickman's plotting I expect to be a bit lost. But his version of Doctor Doom is always worth showing up to the party for.

Not sure if this plot thread will be immediately continued in issue #25 or Doom's part will be sidelined for a while again, but I'll definitely be keeping an eye out. Excellent stuff.

Doom also has a cameo in New Avengers, following on from the events of issue #6. It's only brief, but Hickman writing Doom is always worth turning up for...

CBR has the lettered preview for Fantastic Four #9.

In other intriguing news, this Tom Brevoort interview about New Avengers reveals that Doom will be back next issue:

The introduction of Doom to the proceedings is not a one off, minor thing. We'll see him again immediately in "New Avengers #7, so he's definitely a player on the chessboard at this point.

Looks like the long, Doomless drought may finally be over! (...This is going to be bad news for my wallet.)

Unexpected Doctor Doom is unexpected! But always welcome, especially when written by Jonathan Hickman. I haven't been following New Avengers, but somebody alerted me to a Doom appearance in this issue, so I grabbed a copy.
