*Marvel: One of the highlights of the Good Doctor Collection leads off our Marvel updates for this week. With the fifth issue of the flagship title of the Marvel Universe, the FF met the Big Bad: Victor Von Doom, Monarch of Latveria, a scientific genius who had to hide his disfigured features behind a metal mask (and went in for a whole suit of armour to boot). Doom started out here, and went on to become not only the FF’s arch-nemesis, but arguably the major villain of the entire MU. This low grade cents copy presents reasonably well, with a largely unspoilt cover with good colour, staples attached at spine and top centrefold (off bottom centrefold) and decent off-white to creamy pages. The spine is worn with colour-breaking nicks becoming tiny holes, and there are very small and unobtrusive pieces of tape at top, middle and bottom spine. Edge wear along the bottom and right edges with small colour-breaking creases. Small sealed tear middle right edge sealed with tape on inside cover, and what I assume is the previous owner’s name in (small) pen close to the right edge. There is a small corner off upper left back cover and a small stain lower left back cover. The same name (plus one other) appears in biro in the upper margin of the splash page. High resolution images are available on request.
