HASH(0x8ef145a0) von 5 Sternen Doom, Droom, Foom and Mr. Gloom (The Watcher) 4. September 2014
Von Stephen Vincent Kempton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This is one of the Masterworks that I was most eagerly looking forward to. This volume (along with Not Brand Echh) are the final two volumes of stories from Marvel's First Decade of Greatness following the launch of Fantastic Four #1. Dr. Droom actually pre-dates Fantastic Four #1.

Droom first appeared in Amazing Adventures in 1961. in 1975 when his stories were reprinted in the pages of Weird Wonder Tales editor Roger Stern reprinted the stories and gave him a costume and a new name thus making him retroactively Marvel's first Silver Age superhero. Len Wein who came up with new name of Dr. Druid also introduced him to the Marvel Universe in The Hulk comic. Later Roger Stern would make him an Avenger. I loved the idea of a middle aged, bald headed superhero .

Dr. Droom had five adventures that are collected here. All Plotted by Stan Lee and scripted by Larry Lieber. These five page stories are a lot of fun. The first four are penciled by Jack Kirby with the last one penciled by Paul Reinman. The very first one is an origin tale and we see how he becomes Droom and his face even changes. As a bonus the first Kirby story is inked by Steve Ditko. In the 2nd story we encounter an underwater race. In the final three stories we meet aliens here on earth. For a mystical character the stories really seem more like Science Fiction.

Speaking of Science Fiction next is collected the complete runs of The Tales Of The Watcher. I never realized that it ran as long as it did. 18 stories in all. Starting in 1964 it ran for ten issues of Tales Of Suspense before being replaced by Captain America. Then in 1968 it started up again in the back of the Giant Sized Silver Surfer for seven issues. And then the last one appeared in 1969 in Marvel Superheroes #23.

Of the first run Stan Lee plotted all these tales with his brother Larry Lieber scripting them all except the last one which Stan scripted himself. The pencils are by Paul Reinman for the first one, Larry Lieber for the next eight and George Tuska for the final one in this run.

Larry Lieber Stan's little brother could do it all Script, Write, Pencil and Ink. He does not get nearly enough credit in the history of Marvel Comics and this collection does spotlight his many talents. He was involved in all three series collected here. Lieber who still active today on the Spider-Man comic strip needs a book devoted to his life or at the least an extensive Interview with him.

In the first four stories The Watcher is purely an observer. Then in the fifth story Stan tells the origin of The Watcher. From there on The Watcher becomes a much more active participant in the stories. The stories are like Rod Sterling's Twilight Stories which were done around the same time and deal a lot with the Atomic Bomb and the possibilities of Nuclear War. These stories are all set in either the earth's future or on other worlds.

When the series was brought back four years later in the back of the over-sized Silver Surfer comic the page count went up to 13 pages for the first story and then ten pages for the next six stories. The first story is an expansion of The Watchers Origin. For the remainder of the run we get stories about Earth in the present time with only one set in Earth's future. None are set on other worlds. I don't know if this was a deliberate change in tone to match the Silver Surfer's exile on Earth or just a coincidence . The first three stories feature the excellent art of Gene Colan, the next four are composed of three from Howard Purcell with one from Syd Shores mixed in.

The last story was printed in Marvel Superheroes after the Surfer's book was reduced to a regular 15 cent comic. This story has art by Tom Palmer. This story was reduced to 6 pages and four pages of completed art where never printed. Two of these pages have been found and printed as an extra in the back of the book. I find it strange that they bought and paid for a 10 page story but decided to cut that instead of altering or running a different back up instead since these were are all reprints anyways.

Next up comes Dr. Doom and Roy Thomas's fascinating tale of the creation of the feature length Doom story which ran in Marvel Superheroes #20. Larry Lieber wrote and drew the first 12 pages of this story and then for some reason abandoned it. Roy Thomas was given the story with no knowledge of the ending and instructed to complete it. The story seems seamless and is a very poignant story which makes Doom a sympathetic character.

Next up we get the eight 10 page Dr. Doom stories from Astonishing Tales. The first four have art by the EC Comics legend Wally Wood, then two by George Tuska and two by Gene Colan.

The first three stories form one story. Apparently Wood was writing, at least the first two, the book himself with Roy Thomas only doing the dialogue. It is a story of political unrest and the creation of a Frankenstein like monster called the Doomsman. It introduces some Latverian rebels and a behind the scenes bad guy called the Faceless One . Well, with the third installment Larry Lieber takes over as writer and the story is abruptly ended. The Doomsman is sent to another Dimension, the regular cast is gone and we never find out who the Faceless One is.

Next we get a two part story about the Red Skull and the Exiles taking over Latveria while Doom is on vacation. Followed by a two part story about Doom invading Wakanda , the home of the Black Panther who is featured in the story. A very young Gerry Conway takes over the writing for the 2nd half of this story. Conway's last story is a single 10 pager about Victor Von Doom battling Demon's. It features a lame baddie named Kagrok The Killer who looks way too much like the Doomsman from the previous stories.

I found the book to be a solid amount of fun. It has an excellent Introduction by Roy Thomas and the best extras featured yet in any Masterwork with a lost Starhawk story intended for Marvel Superheroes, covers done for The Dr. Droom/Dr Druid rebranding and a ton of stuff from FOOM (Marvel's In-house fanzine) and MMMS (Marvel's original fan club).

My Highest Recommendation.

HASH(0x8ee956d8) von 5 Sternen Doom stories alone worth the price of admission 26. Februar 2015
Von Dan Pace (feral atom) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Includes stories from Amazing Adventures 1-4, 6, Tales of Suspense 49-58, Silver Surfer 1-7, Marvel Super-Heroes 20 & 23, and Astonishing Tales 1-8. This volume is jam-packed with extras: the lost Starhawk story that was supposed to appear in Marvel Super-Heroes 21, with gorgeous black and white art from Dan Adkins, fantastic Dr Druid covers for Weird Wonder Tales, 2 extra pages for the Tales of the Watcher story that had reduced page count for print, material on the Watcher and Doom from FOOM, MMMS pages, house ads, and t-shirt art,

Before FF#1, Dr Droom became a recurring feature in Amazing Adventures (which became Amazing Adult Fantasy and then Amazing Fantasy with the debut of Spider-man in #15). Dr. Droom has similarities to Dr. Strange: a doctor from the US goes to Tibet and learns mystic arts from an ancient mentor. The metamorphosis at the end of his first appearance is quite bizarre, but, his adventures are intriguing across these five issues. He essentially uses his training to investigate mystical events and prove that they're aliens and not supernatural. I really enjoyed these and felt like the concept had more mileage. Later, Marvel brought him back as Dr Druid in Hulk 210-211 (1977).

The next set of stories are the Tales of the Watcher. The art was not Lieber's best, nor were the stories, but with each one, there was a solid core concept. I found these entertaining, if a bit juvenile. The next batch of Tales of the Watcher from Silver Surfer had much better art. The first three had scintillating art by Gene Colan, perhaps some of the best work he ever did for Marvel. The stories were really engaging. What a bargain those over-sized Silver Surfer issues must've been to be packed with Silver Surfer and these gorgeous Tales of the Watcher stories. Howard Purcell and Syd Shores do excellent artwork on the following tales.

The rest of the collection focuses on Dr Doom. These stories, about 120 pages of the volume, are worth the price of the book alone. Larry Lieber does some of his best work in the first tale. Roy Thomas captures Doom perfectly with the FF and Diablo guest-starring. Also Doom reveals more of his complicated humanity in his secret love, Valeria.

Wally Wood does the art for the next slate of Doom stories from Astonishing Tales, starring the Doomsman, Ramona and Rudolfo. We then see Doom vs the Red Skull and the Exiles, introduced by Wally Wood and then handed off to George Tuska for the next two issues. Tuska does some great artwork here, with a few contorted figures and a maniacal Red Skull, harkening back to Kirby's original. The last two tales are gorgeously rendered by Gene Colan, in my mind, the prototypical Dr Doom artist. Here and in Sub-mariner 47-49, he captures an essence of macabre and menace that I've never seen from another artist. In these last two, Doom battles Black Panther and then delves into the mystical side.

The legend of Doom only grows more tremendous through these volumes, further cementing his role as one of the most complex villains ever devised in any entertainment medium. These stories are not to be missed by any fan of Doom or Gene Colan.

This is one of the most intriguing collections that I've purchased. I bought it the week it came out and have read it cover-to-cover three times already. Here's hoping Marvel is happy with sales and produces another Rarities volume. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x8eb84c54) von 5 Sternen A nice collection to have however 9. April 2015
Von Scott Baer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

A nice collection to have however, a majority of the content is not Dr. Doom based. There is plenty of Watcher stories as well as Dr. Droom stories from early issues of Amazing Adventures. The payoff comes about three quarters of the way into the book. The Astonishing Tales featuring Dr. Doom stories are beautiful. I think this one is for hard core Doom fans only.

Interesting set of Marvel stories that are a nice way to pass the time because of the art and nostalgia factor even if he story lines weren't game changing as far as continuity and character change goes.
