A comic adapted from the {{video game|Genres}} ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}''.

The hero, a [[QuadDamage berserker packin']] man-and-a-half with [[UpToEleven a 12.0 on a 10.0 scale of badness]], is attempting to [[LudicrousGibs RIP AND TEAR]] a huge [[OurDemonsAreDifferent cyberdemon's]] huge guts with his [[MegatonPunch Night Train]], when his berserker pack runs out, leaving the demon [[UnusualEuphemism bonking]] unharmed. His UnstoppableRage over, he spends the rest of the comic communicating his desire to have guns (with a {{chainsaw|Good}}) looking for [[{{BFG}} a gun big enough to blow the demon away]]. But even if he personally stops this alien invasion, what kind of planet will we be leaving to our children? And our children's children? [[GreenAesop How will they live with all the undisposed toxic waste that we left to them to deal with and]]... oh, the humanity, my big gun is out of bullets! (Better believe it, soldier!) ''Dynamite!''

In other words, this 90s comic book (originally a convention giveaway) has become a CultClassic thanks to being nonsensical and over-the-top.

You can read it for yourself [[http://www.doomworld.com/10years/doomcomic/comic.php here]] or with appropriate voiceover [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XZ1UECrRk0&feature=related here]] or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8yc5bnOrSc here]]. [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]] reviewed it in his best attempt at the Wrestling/UltimateWarrior voice [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/linkara/at4w/13656-doom01 here]].

!!This comic provides examples of:
* AdaptationDistillation
* AscendedMeme: As of the XboxLiveArcade release of ''Doom II'', most of the Achievements are named after several lines from this very comic, such as "Important Looking Door" being obtained by finding a secret, and "You Have Huge Guts" for killing a Cyberdemon with your fists.
** ''VideoGame/BrutalDoom'', a ''Doom'' mod that takes some inspiration from this comic book, gives player the ability to [[FinishingMove RIP]] [[{{Gorn}} AND]] [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe TEAR]] enemies with your bare hands upon grabbing a Berserk pack or Demon Strength Rune.
* AxCrazy: "I've got a handful of vertebrae and a headful of mad! Yeah, that's your ''spinal cord'', baby! Dig it!"
* {{Badass}}: Okay, the Doom Guy seems completely insane in here, but he still kills a lot of stuff!
* TheBerserker: Doom Guy starts the comic under the effects of a Berserk Pack. When it wears off, he becomes a ''little'' more coherent.
* {{BFG}}: "Mine eyes can but weep as they bear witness to the majesty... The BFG 9000!"
* BuffySpeak: "Sweet Christmas! Big-mouthed floating thingies! It's always something!"
* CaptainObvious:
** "You are ''huge''! '''THAT MEANS YOU HAVE HUGE GUTS!'''!" How almost Rabelaisian...
** "Now I'm radioactive! [[AndThatsTerrible That can't be good]]!"
** "Now I'm in a completely different place!"
* ChainsawGood: From the page quote: "Aaaah! Chainsaw! The great communicator!"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: The Doom Guy.
* CompanionCube: "At this particular moment in time, I don't think I have a healthier or more deeply-felt respect for any other object in the universe than this here Shotgun." ...Then again, he's probably gone completely insane, so CargoShip, perhaps?
** [[MoreDakka "Hey, Chaingun!]] [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness The hell with respect!"]]
*** The aforementioned CargoShip is actually lampshaded and ridiculed at about 3:15 and 6:20 in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVTiIxFOKtM this]] entry to a Website/{{Youtube}}-based dramatic reading contest for the comic (for men ''and'' women).
* TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks: In many ways, this is really a parody of the kind of overly violent, overly angsty comics that were in vogue during the 1990s.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Subverted, more like "[[OhCrap did you just try to punch out Cthulhu]]?"
-->"[[GiantMook Cyberdemon]]? [[TemptingFate Big deal. He's slim pickings]]."
* ExplodingBarrels: Wouldn't be ''Doom'' without 'em! He detonates a room full of them to get rid of an invisible Pinkie.
* FoeTossingCharge: At the story's climax, with a horde of monsters between the hero and the BFG.
* {{Green|Aesop}} [[AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle Randomly Thrown-In Speech]]: Although he [[DumbassHasAPoint does raise a good point]]. Why the hell is there a giant vat of radioactive sludge lying out in the open?
* {{Gorn}}: Lots of it.
* GunPorn: Sort of. After claiming "Guns are for wusses!" and [[TemptingFate promptly needing one]], "Doomguy" effectively fetishizes the guns he finds; so much that at one point, much in the manner of a classical pick-up artist, he claims he's "All about that plasma rifle" (and baby, it's all about him!)
* HeroicMime: Considering the actual games, an aversion of [[SoBadItsGood epic proportions.]]
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Let's see. He's got a "positive goal" (killing demons), he performs over-the-top grisly deeds (killing demons), he loves what he's doing (killing demons), and it's all PlayedForLaughs (killing de- I mean, "yes, most probably"). The Doom Marine in this story most likely qualifies.
* ILoveNuclearPower: Not really, in this case: "Now I'm radioactive. [[AndThatsTerrible That can't be good]]."
* LameComeback: "Stupid, stupid Imp! You're ''stupid''! And you're gonna be stupid and ''dead''!"
* LargeHam: The main character.
-->''"Yeah, that's your spinal cord, baby! DIG IT!"''
-->'''''"DYNAMITE!"'''''
* TheLegionsOfHell
* MadeOfPlasticine: Pretty much everything except Doomguy and that Cyberdemon.
* ManlyTears: The Doomguy can't help but be teary-eyed as he acquires the BFG 9000.
* MuzzleFlashlight: "Might makes light! '''*blamm*''' And I feel ''mighty!''"
* NoFourthWall[=/=]AxCrazy: The berserker packin' ''MAN AND A HALF'' is generally conversant with the non-spoken internal monologue boxes. Either he's crazy or there's no fourth wall. Or both.
* NoIndoorVoice: Despite this being a comic book, you can only imagine Doomguy speaks this way due to all the exclamation points.
* NoOSHACompliance: {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d when Doomguy finds himself in a random vat of radioactive waste.
* NoSell: The Marine's berserker pack runs out just as he punches the Cyberdemon. Said Cyberdemon merely grins at the now [[OhCrap suddenly-not]]-AxeCrazy Marine.
* OhCrap: The Marine's reaction to his punch failing to harm the Cyberdemon. Can't really blame the guy.
--> '''Marine''': ''"CHOO CHOO CHA BOOGIE! CHOO CHOO CHA...CHOO CH...CHOO CHA...oh my."''
* OhTheHumanity: "The humanity! My big gun is out of bullets!"
* OpenSaysMe: "Knock knock, who's there? '''ME!'''"
* PlotWhatPlot: Well, the game had an ExcusePlot, after all...
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Doomguy tries to punch out a Cyberdemon while under the influence of a Berserker Pack, but it wears off just as he throws the punch.
* RatedMForManly: '''"RIP AND TEAR"'''
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: "heavy ordinance"
* ShoutOut:
** "[[LukeCage Sweet Christmas!"]]
** [[Franchise/EvilDead "Groovy."]]
* SortingAlgorithmOfWeaponEffectiveness: Pretty much the plot - Doomguy kills stuff, and gets a weapon better then his last one.
** Lampshaded when he soliloquizes about his vast respect for his shotgun, then instantly discards it in the next panel to pick up a chaingun.
* StealthParody: It's kind of subtle, but...
* TalkativeLoon: He's as crazy as they get, and won't stop yelling about it.
* TearsOfJoy: Doomguy's reaction to acquiring the BFG 9000.
* TestosteronePoisoning: '''"WHO'S A MAN AND A HALF? I'M A MAN AND A HALF! A BERSERKER PACKIN' MAN AND A HALF!"'''
* TitleDrop: The subtitle anyway:
-->"As I stride knee deep through the dead. All is clear. I know what must be done..."
* {{Understatement}}: "Now I'm radioactive! That can't be good."
* UnsoundEffect: *[[SoundOfNoDamage Bonk]]*
* UnstoppableRage: "Doomguy" while he has the berserker pack, in particular:
-->"[[MadnessMantra Rip and tear, RIP AND TEAR,]] '''[[MadnessMantra RIP AND TEAR!]]''' '''[[AxCrazy RIP AND TEAR YOUR GUTS!]] [[CaptainObvious YOU ARE HUGE!]] [[ShapedLikeItself THAT MEANS YOU HAVE HUGE GUTS!!!]] [+ RIP AND TEAR! +]'''"
* UpToEleven: "I'm the man! I'm a bad man! How bad? Real bad! I`m a 12.0 on the 10.0 scale of badness!"
* WarriorMonk: Sort of. After finding the BFG 9000, the "Doomguy"s normal tough-guy rhetoric is suddenly replaced by expressions one expects to hear from a classical warrior priest (although, to be fair, he does end it with his classical, every-word-a-catchphrase style).
