Summary
The spirit of Grant Morrison's groundbreaking Doom Patrol is captured in this debut series starring the cult-favorite misfits as a part of Gerard Way's new Young Animal imprint.

Flex Mentallo, Robotman, Rebis, Crazy Jane, and more are back to twist minds and take control. This new take on a classic embraces and reimagines the Morrison run's signature surrealism and irreverence. Incorporating bold, experimental art and a brash tone to match a new generation of readers, Gerard Way's Doom Patrol establishes radical new beginnings, breaks new ground, and honors the warped team dynamic of the world's strangest heroes.

This abstract and unexpected ensemble series nods at the Doom Patrol's roots by continuing to break the barriers of the traditional superhero genre. Collects issues #1-6.

Doom Patrol is the flagship title of Young Animal--a four-book grassroots mature reader imprint, creatively spearheaded by Gerard Way, bridging the gap between the DCU and Vertigo, and focusing on the juxtaposition between visual and thematic storytelling.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This manic, frenetic comic, which resurrects a superhero team created in the 1960s, will likely befuddle anyone lacking background knowledge of the original Doom Patrol story arcs, but it's best to just lean into the mania. It opens on Casey Brinke, an ambulance driver, and her partner, who's waxing poetic about a gyro in which an entire universe exists. From there, readers zip around to other characters in increasingly weird jams. About halfway through, a plot starts to come together, and the disparate story lines begin to merge into one semicoherent narrative, but that's hardly the point of Doom Patrol. The bizarre superheroes, comically grotesque villains, over-the-top banter, and zany plot twists are entertaining all on their own, and readers willing to sit back and enjoy the ride won't be disappointed. Befitting the rabid story line, Derington and Fowler's artwork, with colors by Tamra Bonvillain, is a riotous display of bright candy colors, surreal character designs, and beautifully executed action. Comics fans tired of the same old gritty, brooding superheroes will be elated by the nuttiness here.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Way (The Umbrella Academy) delivers a reunion that pulls a lot of the past into the future as this classic DC team tries to reunite around a new face, ambulance driver Casey Brinke. This requires a reintroduction to some classic characters like Robotman and Negative Man, and time to let readers get to know Casey and care about her mysterious role in the reformation of the team. In rounding up players from the past, including the ever-morphing sentient roadway, Danny the Street-now an ambulance as well as other things-and the unstable Crazy Jane-now a crucial final component to the team-Way offers a mind-bending chase through an alternate reality. While fans of previous versions of Doom Patrol will enjoy the reappearance of old favorites, Way's breezy, humorous tone welcomes new recruits. Artist Derrington provides a cartoonish flair to the fun, and Bonvillain's coloring adds a vibrant, surreal edge. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
