Doom Patrol Vol. 1: Brick by Brick

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.

Gerard Way on Doom Patrol
Editorial Reviews
06/26/2017
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)“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.” —BOOKLIST

“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

Return to weirdness
