    Comic books do many things. They entertain. They inform. They explore real world topics both directly and through metaphor. And some comic books speak to the fundamentals of life and humanity, inviting reflection. Doom #1 is an essential must-read that reminds everyone to rage. Read Full Review

    Nerd Initiative - Mickey Smith May 15, 2024

    I want to yell from the mountaintops how much I love this book. The story is packed with action, beautiful prose, and artwork that pushes the narrative and raises it to new heights. I found myself one moment on the edge of my seat excited for happens next, the next, feeling emotionally engaged at what has happened and what's going to happen. The layout of the pages is fantastic, making it a pleasure to the eyes. The pacing is balanced. Flashbacks and explanations don't drag the story and add the appropriate amount of information without any huge lore dumps. I know that I'll be reading this one over and over again for years to come!

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez May 17, 2024

    Doom #1 is a surprisingly engaging, dramatic, and entertaining comic about Dr. Doom facing the greatest threat to the universe alone. Hickman's fondness for cosmically-oriented situations hits a sweet spot, and Greene's eclectic art style looks great. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 15, 2024

    Doom #1 is a visual delight, offering the end of every superhero and a final battle with Galactus in one issue. Dr. Doom emerges from this story as a man who sees himself as the inevitable end for anyone who faces him. He rambles a bit too much, but you can't deny how epic and awesome this story can get.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - batfan1992 May 17, 2024

    Doom #1 is a great one-shot that puts Dr. Doom in a new light. While he is typically depicted as a villain, this issue shows he is also capable of being a hero when he needs to be too. Yet, Doom is a different sort of hero and does not operate as mercifully as other heroes might. It doesnt necessarily show him defeating Galactus in a rematch, but he still puts forth his best efforts, not caring about whether he dies in battle. His personality remains pretty much the same, still somewhat cold and cynical, and yet he does what needs to do to fight against a threat to the universe. If you're interested in seeing one of Marvel's greatest villains wield cosmic power and be depicted in a more heroic light, this comic is for you. Read Full Review
