Has anyone ever tried contacting/interviewing the Doom comic authors?

Recommended Posts

Just curious. The writing is attributed to Steve Behling and Michael Stewart. I reckon it must feel kind of weird having your writing for what was in all likelihood a very throwaway gig for a one-off promo project survive and eventually mutate into the defining quotes/taglines for the franchise over 2 decades later when it is once again catapulted into mainstream pop culture.

 

Both of them seem pretty elusive and not too prolific as writers. From what I can tell, both have a seasoned history primarily for Marvel. Steve Behling is still active today credited as writer for Duck Tales comics.

Hate to bump an old thread, but I recently acquired the Doom comic and wanted to verify some information. I reached out to a few people listed in the credits on Twitter, and got a response from Mike Wilson, former marketing guy at id back in the 90s. He verified a few things: There were 50,000 copies printed (and 100k printed for the id Anthology version), and they were made for E3 1996 (and later that year at the 1st Quakecon in August).

 

Just wanted to share this here in case someone wanted to update the doomwiki with this new information!

I asked @thatsbelievable some questions back in January 2018. I don't have a Twitter any more (deleted my account) but here are the tweets for posterity:
