Doom 2099 #3

Doom 2099 #3 - Comic of the Day
Giant Doom hates buildings w/ sweet logos.
I'm kind of obsessed with this book right now. Three Doom 2099 posts over the course of the last week makes me think I should have labeled this week Doom 2099 week. I just did not know I'd be into it.

Doom 2099 #3 doesn't really have a whole lot going on. The main thing that readers get here are more scenes with some rich bad guy who is so afraid of germs that he travels around in a plastic wrap suit. The plastic is literally skin tight on his face. In a book where one guy wears a metal mask (Doom), and another guy's face resembles a metal tiger's face (Tiger Wylde), the random mysophobe (one who has a fear of germs) is the freak.

The comic of the day bridges the first storyline of Doom trying to take out Tiger Wylde (to take back control of Latveria) to the actual confrontation between Doom and Wylde. The last panel has Wylde riding in on his futuristic flying war vehicles ready to cave in Doom's underground hideout. Doom is sure to come out and get all Tiger-uppercut on Wylde's ass, but that will have to wait until the next issue...and tomorrow's post.

Oh, and guess what is included in every Doom 2099 book so far. Here's a hint: they appear in many books in the late 80's to early 90's starting about a couple of pages into the comic book. If you guessed those little hole-like tears in the paper (usually in threes) at the bottom of the pages...you're correct! Fuck those tears! When those little tears show-up in a comic I love, I always pause for a moment, look into the distance and hear Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven" in my head.
