Aside from my suggestions of improvement, I find this graphic novel a bit interesting to read. The origin of Doctor Doom is still a classic story by Stan "The Man" Lee and Jack "King" Kirby. Even the four-part Fantastic Four story in Latveria is an interesting story to see a benevolent monarch be misinterpreted as a dictator (but we still know he is a villain). The artwork has improved drastically since Kirby's iconic "Galactus Trilogy". Its always astonishing to see the evolution of Kirby's artwork, especially on Marvel's greatest super-villain of all time (cover included....with a sense of power and authority). Overall this trade paperback was a bit good. It just needs to be better. 'Nuff said.
But Kirby's artwork--inked by INKER SUPREME JOE SINNOTT, THE MOST UNDERRATED MAN IN THE HISTORY OF COMIC BOOKS JUST FOR HIS INKING OF JACK KIRBY'S WORK!!!--in reprinted issues 84 through 87 is...FANTASTIC!!! And that's not just the way they drew Dr. Doom, but also Mr. Fantastic, The Torch, The Thing, the supporting characters, the scenery, and of course, the women!!!
I've bought a lot of graphic novels over the years--including the first ever printed, THE ORIGINS OF MARVEL HEROES--but I'd probably rank THE VILLAINY OF DR. DOOM #2 after that, because...
JACK KIRBY IS STILL THE KING OF COMIC BOOKS!!!
