Jack Kirby cvr/art; origin & 1st app. of Dr. Doom, bondage cover, Dr. Doom Movie Rumors!Dr. Doom, according to Jack Kirby, was modeled after the Middle Age concept of Death, hence the skull-like mask and hood. Kirby claimed that Doom, a genius inventor, sorcerer, and leader of Latveria, is inherently evil, and as a result of his facial disfigurement and hatred for Reed Richards, he lashes out against the world in perpetual vengeance. He is one of comics' greatest and most complex villains ever created and he makes his debut here in Fantastic Four #5. Created by the team of Kirby and Stan Lee, this character has been copied and imitated many times over the last fifty years, most notably as one of Lucasfilm's inspirations in creating Darth Vader. This era of Kirby covers defined the industry aesthetic of the period and the dynamic composition informs the reader of what they can expect inside the book's hallowed pages.
This is a high-grade copy of an important Silver Age Marvel key which has seen steady growth over the past few years, and with rumors swirling around Dr. Doom and the MCU, investing in his first appearance and the origin story of Victor Von Doom is a no-brainer. This book hits all the right notes, a wonderful color strike, rigid spine, and nice corners, the classic Kirby cover is resplendent as the bright hues shine forth from a subdued background. The way things are trending on this book it will soon be one of those keys many will only dream of owning in such an amazing state.
