Sideshow Collectibles has been putting out some of the best figures for years and they continue their excellence with the recently announced Doctor Doom Premium Format Figure.
There’s a certain portion of the comics audience (and also, to be honest, the editorial contingent) who have fallen prey to the theory that comics need to be “realistic”, that suspension of disbelief is broken if we don’t know where Batman buys his tights or the actual scientific explanation behind Daredevil’s radar sense… Then in the 80s, Doctor Doom and Iron Man went back in time to fight alongside King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Your Major Spoilers (retro) review of Iron Man #150 awaits!
If you missed out on any of the previous Sideshow Collectibles Legendary Scale statues, then you know they are near impossible to get at a reasonable price on eBay.

So if you’ve already read watchmen or you reeealy want to read this article then read on)
Or – “Roger Daltrey Called: The Kids Are Definitely NOT Alright…” The first issue of this miniseries came out in 2010, and this penultimate issue is actually dated 2012. While I like the fact that the bi-monthly status allows the creators to work to their usual standards, I’m bothered by the continuity of how this all breaks down. After all, this story began before Schism, before Fear Itself, before Spider-Island, before even the end of the Brightest Day, much less the new DCU. With my notorious tendency to worry about WHEN an issue takes place, I hope that this one
