I could find only two things wrong with the review:
You passed up the opportunity to comment on the dialog of the
last picture ("Sweet Christmas! Big-Mouthed Floating Thingies!
It's always something!"). How could you resist saying something
about this? Maybe the marine was actually a victim of a brain
transplant where he ended up with the brain of an insane asylum
You didn't mention the publisher of the wonderful piece of literature,
so (assuming a miracle occurred and they're still in business)
I could make sure to avoid anything by these comic icons.
like that (literally) speaks for itself. I don't think there was
anything I could possibly add to that quote that would make it
seem any stupider.
2) For the
life of me, I can't find a name of a publisher anywhere on the
rag. Maybe they were smart enough to distance themselves from
it... although I doubt it. They probably just forgot to stamp
their names on it while the ten year olds were finishing up the

Doom Comic Book review was hillarious. You have my pity.
you want to do ANOTHER one, let me know. A few years ago, I made
the mistake of purchasing a Doom NOVEL! At least the comic book
had pictures (I guess they could be called that). Anyway, I'd
be MORE than happy to send it to you. ANYTHING to get it out of
my house and make me feel like my $4.95 went to some useful purpose
other than filling a landfill.
I unfortunately have leafed through a couple of those novels before.
While they're extremely poorly written, they do attempt to form
a plot and have some kind of character development rather than
the development in the comic book (i.e., characters just develop
from "alive" to "dead").

simple: They never played the game, they were 10 years old, or
they were stoned.
I'll take "all of the above" for 500, Alex.

have the Doom comic, it came with the ID Anthology and I agree
that its shit and that the authors didn't read it. Hears something's
It takes 4 BFG shots to kill a cyber demon
2) 80 Bullets in the chain gun would do about jack against anything
3) The Doom Marine wore a helmet
4) If he blew up those barrels that close to them he'd be toast
you forgot THE best line from the book. You see this comic (use
the term loosely) is about mans uncaring for nature, as stated
in the below quote...
can't we find a way to safely dispose of radioactive waste and
protect the environment? Even if I personally stop this alien
invasion (foreshadowing?) what kind of planet will we be leaving
to our children and there children's children?"
awful quotes from this comic was too much for me. If I picked
every bit of writing I could make fun of, I'd probably end up
copying the whole thing to HTML.

can't believe Lowtax wasted an hour of his time (at LEAST) reviewing
that piece of crap.
this we get slow updates to the main page?
ever noticed there's always ONE whiner in every bunch? This is
the only negative email I've gotten regarding the Doom
comic. I think maybe Steve is related to one of the writers of
the comic... and he's on his way over to my office now to shoot
me. Don't do it Steve Lieb, think about the children!
PCs before Macs

on Mac first...
can understand the hurt feelings of Windows users for the first
Q3test. And I'm a Mac user.
'own' graphic design like PCs 'own' gaming... that is, way more
software, more mature platform, etc. Adobe is the MS of graphic
design software... and there was a time when 99% of their profits
came from Mac users. When Adobe released PageMill 3.0 for PCs
first (this was pre- iMac, when everybody thought Apple was dead)
I saw flames for months. People felt betrayed... and angry. Mac
users, the reason for their success, were shafted.
players are as fanatical about their game as a Mac user is about
their OS... so I can take the anti-Apple bashing in stride.
just wonder, though:, about all the Quakers who 'dis' on Apple
whenever possible... John Carmack has publicly stated that when
Apple releases OSX, he will likely move all development over to
that platform. Will that finally win Apple their respect? Or will
it take 750MHz AltiVec G4 boxes w/ 4X AGP and Voodoo 3500 or TNT2
cards (as rumors say are on the way)? Maybe getting rid of that
damn stupid round mouse ?
I think killing that lame ass mouse would be definitely a move
in the right direction. It wouldn't hurt to kill Jeff Goldblum
