Hickman’s Best Writing, Ribic’s Best Art!
To borrow a term from the rival DC Comics universe, this masterpiece is the best Elseworlds story ever told. What if Doctor Doom became Emperor Doom, a virtual god, with only Black Panther and others standing in his way? Esad Ribic’s pencils are the perfect compliment to Jonathan Hickman’s concise tale. No words, lines, or panels are wasted!
