Once they have him they get a device from doom that will make Nightmare tangible. The plan works and the defeat him. Dr. Doom predictably betrays them and absorbs Nightmare and his powers. He reveals leaving Voodoo in the nightmare realm was all a carefully orchestrated plan so he could become sorcerer Supreme.

Voodoo binds the Door once more this time with the crows of Legba. The world is restored and the Drumm brothers celebrate. Only one thing remains uncertain….if the threat warned by the vishanti was Doom? or something else? One of the women helping Voodoo with his charity house comes to carry him on a date and he accepts. In the Bondye, Ogoun is approached by his servant as he feeds on Nightmare. With the door now open it is time for him to wreck Havoc on the world!

 

The Good

Exciting twists and turns make this the best issue in the series. Doom’s betrayal, Voodoo’s plan everything came together well. The art and Colors contrast lead to some truly beautiful pages and the cliffhanger ending was pure gold. Voodoo, and doom get great characterization and dialogue. Action splashed across the pages as the macabre and mystic clashed in epic form.

 

The Bad

After this Bendis kills off voodoo in a boring uneventful manner.

This is the last issue of the series

 

The Ugly

4/5
