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.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Reeled in I had never heard about doom patrol before but I was reeled in by the amazing artwork and interesting looking characters but when i had finally read it I grew disappointed and instantly regretted buying it.. the plot was down right confusing and hard to understand. That and the book was just being too 'random' and 'weird' to be likable. I'd rather just stick to reading deadpool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sorta good I really like the art and the characters are decent, however it tries too hard to be weird sometimes just for the sake of being weird instead of adding to the story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Weird, As It Should Be A great start for the revival of DC's weirdest heroes

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quirkiest superhero origins I hadn't been exposed to Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol prior so I was pleasantly surprised by Gerard Way's take on the quirkiest bunch of superheroes I have come to know yet. It's a solid start that has me, well, while a little confused as to where the plot can and will go, captivated by the intriguing backstories of this squad to check out more of this refreshed Doom Patrol, and the rest of DC's new Young Animal imprint line.

Editorial Reviews

“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
