Review: The Wedding Of Doom Ends In Disaster For One Of Marvel’s First Family In ‘Fantastic Four’ #34

by Olly MacNamee


The wedding of Doctor Doom has been well and truly ruined. And someone has to pay! No guessing who in Fantastic Four #34 BY Dan Slott and R.B. Silva


After the build up to the wedding of Doctor Doom and Victorious’s admittance of infidelity at the altar all Hell breaks loose in Latveria with Doctor Victor Von Doom in total control. 

It’s an issue that necessitates cover-to-cover action, but it remains a gripping read thanks to Dan Slott’s clever dialogue and scripting, reminding readers of Doom’s genius, even though it is one used to benefit him most of the time. It also reminds us that Doom is not a man to be trifled with and exacts a great price for any such slight.

Along for the ride and providing the fireworks once aria is R.B. Silva with colours by Jesus Aburtov and together they light up the sky with well choreographed action and a fiery palette of colours appropriate for such a bust-up. 

By the end of the issue, a certain member of the Fantastic Four is changed for the worse (and I think we can all guess who that is given recent developments in this title) but it’s Victorious’s fate that is more chilling. Both characters suffer the consequences of crossing Doom and both will wear their burdens for a good while yet. All-in-all a great addition to the 60th anniversary year of Marvel’s First Family, and a great appetiser for next issue’s official celebratory issue featuring the villain of the moment, Kang!

Fantastic Four #34 is out now from Marvel Comics
