The art here is FAR superior to what was in the Morrison run and the writing doesn’t have that unpleasant feel that I got from Morrison. It’s pretty clear that Gerard Way moves to his own beat as The Doom Patrol barely appears at all in their own first issue. Things happen in a very surreal, dreamlike manner. One page was titled, “What are you doing, Niles Caulder”. Caulder was the wheelchair bound creator and leader of the Doom Patrol. He is shown taking off in an air balloon and flies past an enormous stone relief of himself which changes expression in the final panel. What does it mean? No idea, but I still found it intriguing.
I really like it when DC allows independent artists and writers to have fun with their properties and make them their own. If you look up Gerard Way on Wikipedia he seems like a very interesting guy with a very full life. I will confess that sometimes the plot seemed to get a bit muddled and this is one I’ll have to read a few times. On a second and maybe third reading I will modify my review possibly dropping my score if it turns out that the stories isn’t confusing but instead sloppy.
