nomadicwriter: Doctor Doom on his throne (Doom throne)

CBR has the preview for Avengers World #16.

(I didn't pick up the last one, and I'm not following Axis, so I think I'm too lost to keep up at this stage, but it looks like there's some good stuff with Doom and Valeria, anyway. Though I'm confused about the timing, since Val's already left Latveria in other comics.)

Well, that really sucks. So close to coming out, too. I wonder what happened there?

I guess it's better than getting an unfinished mini, but still, I would have liked to have seen it. It seems like Spencer got the scripts done, so maybe it could still see the light of day in some form in the future.

Bah. Doom is displeased.

Edit: According to Bleeding Cool, it was cancelled due to Becky Cloonan having family issues that prevented her from getting the art done, so it's not impossible that it will be resurrected at some point. Apparently Marvel's still keen on the series, so that's something.

Edit the Second: ...And now it appears that Bleeding Cool was going with the tried and tested journalistic method of 'making stuff up' when they were claiming Becky Cloonan didn't turn in any interior art, so who the hell knows what actually happened? Aargh.

CBR has the full scoop. It's a four part mini-series about the teenage Victor's first attempt to free his mother's soul from hell.

This looks awesome. I don't really know Nick Spencer's writing, but the Becky Cloonan art is gorgeous, and the comments from both of them are really, really encouraging - they talk about Books of Doom and Triumph and Torment, two of my favourite takes on Doom ever, and Cloonan says this is practically her dream comic. Mine too. I am so excited.
