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.Read more ›
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.
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 really enjoyed this comic. Warren Ellis's writing is really good and it shows here. The art work is not bad, though it suffers in some panels but not enough to really bring it... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer

One of the top writers in the history of the United Kingdom. Doom 2099 as good as comic books get. Nuff said.Published on June 7, 2013 by Vegas Boy
I like Warren Ellis's writing (especially Planetary) and Dr. Doom is a fascinating character. I expected the combination of the two of them to result in a seminal piece of comics. Read morePublished on May 12, 2013 by Frank L. Greenagel Jr.
