Well now. Have I your attention?

Good, because this news sure has mine. Looks like a quite fun book is close at hand – an exciting blend of gothic tragedy horror science fantasy superheroics featuring a compelling lead: Doc Doom!

David Annandale’s Marvel Untold Novel THE HARROWING OF DOOM (out in various forms and places now), brings one of Marvel’s greatest Byronic heroes to prose. This entertaining interview from Chris Rutkowski sheds some light on author and character motivations.

Doctor Doom has often been portrayed sympathetically, and he’s definitely a prime example of a tragic figure. The story could be good – it sounds like it will be – and the storytelling itself comes from a skilled storyweaver. What think you: is Doom as hero, Byronic to be sure, a worthy read?
