Keith Giffen says.......

From the mouth of Mr Giffen (courtesy of the DC Boards):

Just to set things straight here before supposition runs wild...

Yes, that is Ambush Bug's eye.

Yes he is joining the DP book BUT as a supporting player.

No, he will not join the core team and finally...

Yes, bouncing him off of Larry is more fun than I should be allowed to have.

Doom Patrol #11 preview


What kind of people call themselves "The Brotherhood of Evil"? Not this group; not if a certain pan-dimensional business tycoon has anything to say about it. After all, image is everything. But it doesn't matter how they rebrand themselves - the Doom Patrol has found them, and it's not going to be pretty.

Matthew Clark sketches!

Hey guys - I've added three new sketches by Matthew Clark, artist of Doom Patrol. The first is of Porcelain Doll, who first appeared in #7 and will appearing again very soon.

The next images are of Dr Dread and "The Men". Matthew Clark himself asks whether Dr Dread is friend......or foe?

Doom Patrol #8 Review


I think this is my favourite issue yet.

I could list everything I loved about this issue, but I would be here for LOOOONG time. And if I tried to list the 'faults'..... I'd really have to think about it. No about........ why is this comic not being released weekly?!

Giffen has outdone himself in the humour department. And given how high he sets the bar, that's quite an achievement!! How in the world does he make Larry's pelican-paranoia more engaging than 95% of other comic's storylines?! And the punchlines flow freely and smoothly, with Cliff acting as the perfect counterpoint.

And speaking of Cliff..... what an interesting little introspective moment shared between him and Dusty...... I would buy this comic purely for the character interaction. From the scenes with Rocky & Crazy Jane, to Larry and "annoying woman", every line blends into the next, creating a stimulating tapestry of conversations. Also, the art was great - as always (in my opinion). From Clark, to Justiniano, to any art-assists they've had, I feel that the artwork has always been one of Doom Patrol's strengths.

It must also be said that very scene that mentioned Danny the Street was exceptionally well-handled - particularly the very last "speech bubble" and the reference to Dr G. Morrison. Absolutely fantastic.

5/5. Without a doubt.

Doom Patrol #8 preview!


Here's a 5-page preview of today's #8, courtesy of Newsarama. Just be aware that pgs 3 & 4 should be combined, so you'll need to flick back and forth a bit. Aside from that, looks like we could be in for another exciting issue! Review coming later today........ but as a reminder, here's the preview:

"A pandimensional wrecking crew has come to Oolong Island looking for something specific, and the Doom Patrol had better find it while there’s still an island left!"

Insane Doom Patrol moments!

A super-favourite article of mine: "The Most Insane Moments of Doom Patrol", courtesy of Comics Alliance.

It covers the Brotherhood of Dada, the Beard Hunter, Doom Force....... in fact, most of the article looks at the strangeness that Grant Morrison brought to the job! Enjoy the reading!
