Cursitor Doom

Haven't had some Geoff Campion for a while, so here we go with another Cursitor Doom episode. This one is from Smash dated, 10th May 1969.

Don't forget Titan Book's Albion Origins is a compendium of unusual IPC heroes and includes a complete Cursitor Doom tale.


  1. Do you know if it is possible to get the rest of this story anywhere?

  2. Hey Paul. A lot of this stuff is available out there on the internet, you just have to have a dig around. You might have a better chance by searching for the comic it appeared in (Smash) rather than the individual story.
    I think Rebellion, the publishers of 2000AD, bought a whole bunch of old British comic characters a while ago:


    Whether Cursitor Doom was one of them, I'm not sure. You could contact Rebellion and ask? Otherwise you could try Titan, who published the Albion book?

    It's probably easier to find the original comics though. Good luck!

  3. Hi Crow,

    Thanks. I followed your advice and got a whole series of 'Smash' in digital form from Ebay minus one week in the middle of the 'Return of the Hunter'. I managed to get an original 'Smash' for that week and so now have re-read the story 47 years after first seeing it. I remember it scared the **** out of me when I was 8.

    Thanks again, Paul
