The Doom comic is a sixteen-page comic book, written in 1996 by Steve Behling and Michael Stewart, with art and color design by Tom Grindberg, all credited with purposely gory nicknames for the occasion. It was produced by Dana Moreshead, for Marvel Comics, as a giveaway for a video game convention.

The story is based on that of Doom, and revolves around a marine (without a helmet) searching for powerful weaponry in order to defeat a cyberdemon. The strip includes many well-known Doom monsters, including zombies, Imps, Demons, Cacodemons, and Spectres. Several of the weapons from Doom and Doom 2 are featured, including the chainsaw, the Super Shotgun, the chaingun, the Plasma gun and the BFG9000. In the comic, the Super Shotgun replaces the original shotgun. It does not appear to be sawed-off as it does in the game.

The comic was not originally very well received, and was quietly forgotten for nearly five years after its release. However, it gained a large amount of attention in 2001 when Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka reviewed the comic on PlanetQuake, and later received exposure again in the 10 Years of Doom special at Doomworld in December of 2003, where it was published online. Original art from the project was put up for auction on eBay in April of 2004. The over-the-top character of the Doom comic has made it rather notorious within the fan community.
