Dr. Droom Defies the Menace Called... Krogg!

October 29, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

This is the 5th and last review of Dr. Droom.  I hope you enjoyed this week of focused comic book reviews as much as I did.   In some ways it is a shame, that the by far story that seemed to have the biggest development was destined to be the  end of it.

by far is still did not have much depth to the development, but in reading it, you feel that Dr. Droom had met his first Nemesis.  I Believe fully that Krogg would have been the one they turn back to over and over as the stories went on.. if they did. (more…)

Amazing Adventures #4
What Lurks Within ?

October 28, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

With this week drawing to an end, and Halloween drawing closer, it may be time that the reviews started to show a bit more signs of the day that comes. This one does fit that requirement, and not just in the comic book title”What Lurks Within?

This comic book story starring the hero of the week Doctor Droom was printed in September 1961’s Amazing adventures issue.  of the comic book reviews I did this week, this is the one that was both the “brightest” and the most “Halloween” feeling.

was it the story, was it spooky, was it eerie and anything else that made it seem like Halloween to me?  Not so much, no.  But then, what was it? Indeed that is the first question I will strive to respond to, before I get down to the normal point of my comic book review.

Amazing Adventures #3
Doctor Droom meets Zemu!

October 27, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

Unlike yesterday I offer no great quotes or build up to them, the beginning of his the 3rd Doctor Droom Story offered me none that I felt would be right to start us off.

That is not to say that I do not feel it is a good story, even if I can’t help but feel I have seen this in a movie, although one that I believe is from the later 80’s (or is it early 90’s?).

I will waste no more time building up to the review of this comic book story though, and dive right in. (more…)

Amazing Adventures #2
The World Below!

October 26, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

Sometimes I like to begin a comic book review with a quote, sometimes I feel that the words in the issue convey the other awe I am looking for, and describe the purpose of the review your about to read better than I can.  Sometimes the words on the first page say it all, and I just put them out there. But then there are times like this where I like to build them up first. so without any more words wasted, here is a quote from the short story: From the amazing cases of Dr. Droom “The World Below!” (more…)

Amazing Adventures #1
I am The Fantastic Dr. Droom

October 25, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

with this being the last week of October, as the air is getting cool, and Halloween drawing near, I felt it time for a bit of a change. so I bring forth Dr. Droom Week.

Stay Tuned my comic book review readers as we Move back in time again for this week. To start we will go to  June of 1961 to begin this epic tale,  of a marvel hero whom would appear for five lone stories in Amazing Adventures #1 to #4 and then again in #6. Then he would vanish into the nothingness of comic history for a long time before being brought back and renamed Dr. Druid.

for a bit more history, Amazing Adventures was renamed after issue #6 to Amazing Adult Fantasy; the name it would keep for 7 of the 15 issues of the run,  the last issue, that I already reviewed it would drop the word adult and debut Spider-Man.

But for now, we are back at issue #1, and it is still called Amazing Adventures, the last short story in the book is titled I am The Fantastic Dr. Droom. In 5 pages we have the origin of perhaps the strangest marvel character until Dr. Strange. (more…)

Amazing Fantasy #15

September 15, 2011 | Drew | (No Comments)

Amazing Fantasy 15 is the last issue of Amazing Adult Fantasy, that was dropped from the name with just that issue.  unfortunately for Amazing Adult Fantasy #15, that with or without the adult, it was to be the last issue of that comic magazine.

But fortunately for us, and history, that allowed them to take a chance on one of comics most popular characters.  One that was a teenager and not a sidekick, and One of not just my favorite comic hero’s of all time; but one of the worlds favorite comic hero’s of all time.

You see, Amazing Fantasy #15 presented us Spider-Man for the first time. It gave birth to a legend.  It brought us a hero unlike others at the time. It was a chance taken, but one that would change the face of comic book hero’s to come. (more…)
