As far as stories go, this graphic novel barely has one: Doomsday (or a monster looking like him) appears out of nowhere to battle the four "substitute" Supermen who first appeared in the aftermath to the original Death of Superman storyline in 1992. Like the original Doomsday/Superman fight, each battle here is fairly straight forward: the combatant and Doomsday hit each other until one of them falls down. Plot-wise, that's about it--no back story, no hints at a larger plot, no characterization. To be fair, these stories are supposed to be a prologue to a larger Superman event titled Superman: Reign of Doomsday, but even as prologue, this stuff is shallow. While it is true that the Outsiders story and the JLA issue do involve some other plot events, they have nothing to do with the Doomsday storyline and will prove very difficult to follow for readers who haven't been reading recent issues of those books.
Unless you're a Superman completist (but beware--Superman himself does not appear in this collection!) you'll probably want to skip this graphic novel. Even those interested in the Reign of Doomsday event are probably better off passing on this one--there's nothing here you'll need to follow that storyline.
