If there was the option I would have given this three and a half actually, but I think that I did not get a lot out of it on my first reading. Yes, this is a book that deserves multiple readings (well, at least two). I agree with much of what was written by other reviewers, including the one who gave it one star who says that it was difficult to read. Yes, it is a difficult read, but I think this is because:

1. It starts midway from a previous story that Warren Ellis did not initiate
2. It covers very philosophical and political themes in a very detailed manner
3. If you do not have prior background on the 2099 universe that makes it even more difficult to get the full story
4. The Doom series impacts all hte other characters in the 2099 line (such as Spider-Man 2099, X-men 2099, Hulk 2099 and Punisher 2099) but this series does not cover their individual titles

So basically, there are parts of this which are brilliant,, parts which which are so incredibly detailed that they are hard to understand fully (due to the reasons stated above) and parts that are OK. I cannot fairly say an of it is bad though because to be honest the parts I didn't enjoy very much I don't think I truly understood.

One thing none of the other reviewers touched upon is that Ellis seems to be making a political statement here, and he is d oing so in an incredibly elequent and intelligent manner. This is one of the most politicall sound alternative universes I have ever read about in mainstream comics.

Easily some of Ellis best work. Marvel 2099 exists in a dystopian future that combines the worst of the 90's and 80's cliches. In spite of this, Ellis makes something beautiful. This is not the Doom that we know, he has grown beyond his petty rivalry with Reed Richards. In his place stands Doom allowed to be what he is meant to be, an old world technocrat.

I won't spoil the rest except to say that this is a beautiful piece buried beneath some crap. The first few chapters aren't very good (Ellis was having to follow someone else's plots) but once you get past those you have an epic that is well worth the effort.

This is one of few comics that have main super protagonist who decides to take care of some social and political issues that appear even nowadays. If you expected mainstream superhero comic, this one is not for You.

First few stories were difficult to understand because Ellis just continued someone else's storyline and had to tie it up.

Main story, and main treat if I might say, is Doom's idea to help Earth's population by enslaving world and becoming a benevolent dictator. If this sentence sounds attractive to you, I guarantee that plot and conclusion will not let your hopes down! It would be difficult for low calibre writers to take on such a topic, but Ellis shows just how good he is in this book.

Along with Planetary, this might be my favourite Ellis' work.

I always liked Doom 2099. I guess it was the most unexpected series to be launched from Marvel in their new 2099 line. Spider-Man, X-Men was normal choices. This collection reunites the work of Warren Ellis in the series. In it, we can see the rise and fall of Doom in 2099 AD. Great art of Steve Pugh and I think it was the best work of Pat Broderick (and I don't like his work in general). I just think that they should have released a Doom 2099 vol. 1 first. I miss issues 1-23 and some of them are very good. I hope Marvel do something about this as they are resealing X-Men 2099 and Spider-Man 2099 from the beginning. I recommend this collection for Doom, Warren Ellis, Seteve Pugh and Pat Broderick fans.

As other reviews have noted, the title of Complete Collection is misleading. This trade only collects the Warren Ellis run on Doom 2099 (#24-39), leaving out the first half of the series as well as the final few issues. However, this is definitely the best of the series. The plot involves Doom conquering the United States and setting up a new government that begins to alleviate many of the problems of the cyberpunk dystopia that was Marvel 2099. The early 90s-style artwork actually suits this story quite well. The only flaw is that the entire new "After Doom" status quo fails to register within the book itself; this trade also collects a World of Doom 2099 special indicating the creators' plans for how Doom's invasion would impact the other 2099 books, but these effects do not appear within the Doom 2099 collection. It is, however, a minor flaw in what ends up being a fun and entertaining political satire.

Warren Ellis is a great writer. I knew that when I read these stories in their original single-issue form way back when. Ellis' take on Dr. Doom in this dystopian future world was brilliant. I have always been a big Dr. Doom fan, and I had been waiting for years for Marvel to collect at least some of the stories in trade paperback form. Now, I can only hope they release the rest in similar fashion. Anyone who likes Doom needs to buy this book.
