Ye Olde Doom Comic

Dec 23 | Posted by: Fighter #1 |

Once upon a time, there was a video game. It was called Doom. It was pretty awesome, and it revolutionized video games.

It was so influential, in fact, that many other people tried to get involved in the giant money cow it appeared to be. Many clever people came up with many clever (read: "bad") ideas for tie ins to cash in on the game.

One of the best of these was The Doom Comic! It's 16 pages of the game's normally silent protagonist monologuing about his favorite guns, shouting  "rip and tear!", and quoting Army of Darkness. It's pretty tremendous!

However, a few years ago, I decided that this brilliant narrative could use some classing up.

To that effect. I downloaded the comic and rewrote the dialog in "Ye Olde English." I then created a LiveJournal account expressly for the purpose of hosting these images. Then I forgot the password because I never intended to update it. Then I realized that I'd made a mistake on one of the pages!

So, for posterity's sake, I have redownloaded all the images, fixed my mistake, and re-uploaded them here for everyone to enjoy again!

Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11 Page 12 Page 13 Page 14 Page 15 Page 16 Page 17

I guess finding useful, reliable infromtaion on the internet isn't hopeless after all.
