Review

-As the first Young Animal title to debut, Doom Patrol set a distinct tone for the new DC Comics imprint, one driven by creative ambition and a willingness to think outside the box. ---A.V. Club/The Onion
-If you have a taste for the peculiar, then DOOM PATROL by writer Gerard Way and artist Nick Derington should be on your radar.---io9

-Writer Gerard Way and artist Nick Derington have brought back the Patrol, and have doubled down on the weirdness from the Morrison era, but with their own unique and modern spin.- --Nerdist
-This series is all about celebrating the weird, surreal side of the DCU.- --IGN
-Absolutely recommended for readers in search of something a bit off and highly experimental.---Vice

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic stuff 13 Jun. 2017
By N - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I started writing a review for this, but had to stop because I wasn't doing the book justice. Simply put, this book is heartfelt and is probably the best continuation of Morrison's Doom Patrol one could have hoped for. There's a lot of old stuff that's brought back, along with a lot of new; it's all fantastic. Be sure to read Morrison's stuff before reading this, because if you don't, you'll be completely lost.

Definitely worth the read. First time ever reading a Doom Patrol book and this was definitely one weird adventure but definitely it is not discouraging as it part of the charm of this title. It has great pacing and get a feel for every characters in the book without it feeling overcrowded.

5.0 out of 5 stars DC Newest, Strangest Imprint 9 Jun. 2017
By David Swan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really don’t understand the name of the new DC imprint, Young Animal. The name makes it sound like it’s aimed at young readers but it’s actually intended for mature readers. According to Wikipedia the intention is to, “relaunch characters and settings from the DC Universe… done with a more experimental approach”. The Doom Patrol is far less obscure than the other relaunches and having them in offbeat stories is nothing new. Grant Morrison had a rather famous run starting in 1989 and the product description references this book as being in, “the spirit of Grant Morrison’s groundbreaking DOOM PATROL”. I’ve loved a lot of stuff by Morrison but not his Doom Patrol stories. I like offbeat but Morrison’s stories were really creepy and not in a good way. It wasn’t helped by the awful artwork.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars at other times I found myself captured by the story and rooting for characters I'd come to like. The ending leaves me entirely i 7 Jun. 2017
By Nicola Mansfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Holy moly! What the heck did I just read?! I've never read Doom Patrol before nor have I heard of any of the characters. This dropped me into the middle of an outrageous story running at full speed. This is the first book from DC's new imprint 'Young Animal' which they describe as a place between DCU and Vertigo. That definition suits me as I found the material mature, but without a capital "M", and there wasn't any gore with the violence. So, Doom Patrol ...? I can't really say anything. At points, I didn't have a clue as to what was happening or who these people were, at other times I found myself captured by the story and rooting for characters I'd come to like. The ending leaves me entirely intrigued and I think things will only get wilder and stranger from here! I want to know who these people are! Really took me for a ride.
