The final part of this five issue arc, and it goes out with the same high standards it came in.

Overall, I would definitely recommend these issues to all fans of Doom. Ed Brubaker has a brilliant grasp of Doom's character (no surprise, after Books of Doom) and the art is very nice too. Quality stuff.

Lettered preview for Winter Soldier #5, the last part of the storyline. Might be in for a bit of a drought of Doom appearances after this. :(

CBR has the lettered preview for Winter Soldier #4. Looks like it's going to be a fun issue.

Ah, this is more like it; the Doom storyline's finally getting going after all two setup-heavy intro issues, and this time we get a more substantial appearance.

CBR has the preview for Winter Soldier #3. And the last part of Avengers: Children's Crusade will finally be out next week, though there's still no hint whether Doom might make one final appearance.

This is very much a middle chapter, lots of setup and still only a brief cameo for Doom, so, just a short review:

So I picked up the first issue of the new Winter Soldier series. Doom only has a tiny cameo, but it's an important one, setting up bigger things for the next few issues, and it's an excellent comic regardless. I haven't really read much of the previous Winter Soldier stuff, but it's pretty new-reader friendly to my eyes; there's a bit of exposition on Bucky's background dropped in, but it's mostly all stuff I'd picked up by fandom osmosis anyway.

All in all, too soon to rate this as a Doom appearance yet, but the signs look good, and as the first issue of a great-looking new espionage comic, I recommend it.

This is a post I've been meaning to make for a while, but I was waiting on getting hold of some comics, and also, Marvel has been keeping this comm busy with a flood of high quality Doom appearances. (Long may it continue!) But now I've had the chance to get my scans together, I present a little bit of a Marvel universe history lesson.



Doom's origin is sadly not as well known as it could be, since adaptations like the movies and the Ultimate comics have a bad tendency to chop the whole thing out to avoid bringing magic into the story. That really does his character a great disservice, since not only is magic an important part of Doom's powerset, but it's his backstory that makes it so impressive and even semi-sympathetic that he became the supervillain we know today.
