The Rundown: Doom goes to war with a god at the end of all things.

A lone ship traveling through space finds the battered, broken body of Doom floating among the stars. After Valeria Richards rescues the dying Doom, she nurses him back to health and reminds him of how he ended up in space after being defeated by a rampaging Galactus.

After reminding him of the failure of Earth’s heroes to stop the planet’s destruction and the futility of the cosmic heroes to slow down Galactus, she reveals that she followed the creature to its final destination and the recovery of an object that Galactus will use to pass his final judgment on the universe.

The Story: Hickman crafts an intense and entertaining story for Doom in this issue. It’s a dark tale filled with great action and creates an interesting dynamic between Doom and Valeria. The story has a great dark tone as well and made me appreciate Doom in a way that I didn’t before. An intensely fun and dark ride.

The Art: Greene’s art is masterful. There are so many wonderful visual moments throughout the issue and every reaction is filled with great details that perfectly convey the emotion of the moments.
