Man, I sure do love DOOM. He’s been my favorite Marvel guy for as long as I can remember. Well, except for that brief period between the ages of 4 and 5 when I was obsessed with The Incredible Hulk, but nuts to that… Dr. Victor von Doom is a big, BOOMING asshole with a metal plate welded to his face, a spooky castle full of spooky super-science, and an old-fashioned (almost quaint) devotion to Total World Domination. How could you not love the guy? He OWNS HIS OWN COUNTRY, for god’s sake! “Latveria,” it’s called, pop. 50,000… Capital city: Doomstadt… Airport: Doomsport… National holiday: Doom’s Day… Citizens: currently living in the manner of medieval peasantry – FOR SO DOOM DEMANDS.

My ardor for The Incredible Hulk has cooled quite a bit over the past 27 years, but Doom… the Doom abides.

Above, we see Dr. Doom depicted in mortal combat with a dapper be-scarfed gentleman wielding a giant spoon.

And here we have one image of Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender and one image of Snow White from Fables giving Bigby Wolf the ol’ “Flamenco Dip.”

For more oddities, including an image of a man holding an image of himself (OR IS HE?), might I direct your attention to the COMMISSIONS GALLERY?

And, as always, if you’d like to request your OWN image of a man holding an image of himself (or super-hero, fire-bender, fairy tale character, Frank Zappa, naked Frank Zappa, naked fox girl, naked rutabaga, favorite bit of fishing tackle, etc, etc, etc.) e-mail me at SERENITY@HEARTSHAPEDSKULL.COM. The base price for art commissions is $50, and $30 for each additional character on the same page. Shipping is all kinds of free within the U.S., and a measly $3 to parts beyond.

Hope to hear from you soon, Doom-lovers!
