Data and Doctor Doom published
The book (partly) based on these blogs is now available to buy online from Palgrave Macmillan!
It uses the comics, cartoons and other texts discussed here as the many case study for the development of a tool for analysing the way that fictional characters change as they move through time and across different media. It then goes on to demonstrate how it can be used to analyse other characters, with the American and British characters called Dennis The Menace as an example, but that's probably less of interest if you've come here for Doctor Doom!
This is an academic book, so the pricing is Not Cheap to say the least - the general idea is that libraries order it, so if you have access to one of those please do ask them to do so. If not, there will hopefully be a (slightly) cheaper version next year, and Palgrave do have sales fairly regularly.
Either way, thanks very much for everyone who's shown an interest in this work over the years, and hope you do get a chance to see the book one way or another!
