I started this account with the hopes of indexing my entire collection. So its rather silly that its been almost two years and I havent even gotten halfway through my stuff. Although, truth be told I don't think I m the only one.
It just takes time and I am glad I have the option of this site, so I thank you all.

"Shadow Doom!" is written by Marv Wolman and Archie Goodwin with art by Steve Ditko.
How do you feel about Steve Ditko? When I was a kid during the Golden Age of Comics*, he was an old-timer still working at Marvel. It always seemed like a fill-in issue. In my head, the conversation in the Marvel Bullpen goes like this:
