Marvel Cancels Doctor Doom Comic Book In December

There was no mention of an issue of the Doctor Doom ongoing series in Marvel's January 2021 solicitations, but there was a King In Black: Doctor Doom and Iron Man special in December solicitations as well as #10 from the same creative team of Christopher Cantwell and Salvador Larocca, which might have been seen as a "double up". for December with a skip month in January as a result. But February Marvel solicitations have no such continuance and it appears that Doctor Doom #10 out next month will be the final issue of that series. Issue #9 is out next week. Marvel often don't announce the cancellation of a comic book series with a FINAL ISSUE or LAST ISSUE note in the solicitations, leaving people to. basically work it out for themselves. Which, it appears, we have just done.

Cantwell also tweeted about the next issue #9 being a penultimate one.. though of course there is the "eleventh" King In Black issue as well…

Here are those final issue solicitations…
