Motor City Comic Con 2016

It's here folks! The twenty-ninth* largest comic and pop culture convention in the United States! Motor City Comic Con!

Regardless of the size of the con or its focus on media, memorabilia, or moola, there's simply no denying that there will be comics to be had, comic creators to talk to, and Doom to be Patrolled! I'll only be there tomorrow, but my day already has a couple planned highlights, such as:

1. Chatting with Matthew Clark and picking up a sketch from him.

2. Picking up a shiny load of Doom Patrol stuff. Yes, I know what it is. No, I'm not telling. At least not until sometime over the weekend.

3. An interview with a creator whose work I adore for a site that I love.

Some shopping and frivolous spending of money. Maybe even connecting with an old friend or two or making a new friend or three.

* I don't really know where Motor City ranks in regards to con size, but twenty-ninth sounded good. Of course this IS Alan Davis' only United States appearance this year.

All the Way!

As shared on Comicosity, Gerard Way has posted some new thoughts on his blog. Check out the Comicosity link or the blog post proper. For now, and in the interest of sharing, I'm just going to re-post this image of Robotman from Nick Derington that Way shared in that blogpost.

NEW DOOM PATROL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Announced at ECCC while I was at work, the DOOM PATROL IS RETURNING TO COMICS!!! Looks like Gerard Way is getting his way and bringing the DP back! Previously reported as a collaboration with Becky Cloonan, the project was presumed dead, but DC has deemed us all worthy! 

And, to make it even more exciting, the book launches in September, which is almost exactly five years after the last Doom Patrol title ended! 
Read on: 

This September, in the spirit of Grant Morrison's legendary run on the series, along with other classic incarnations of the characters, writer Gerard Way and artist Nick Derington will put their unique stamp on the world's strangest heroes taking on the universe's strangest villains.

Doom Patrol in Earth One?

Anyone who read the Teen Titans: Earth One OGN undoubtedly saw the hints that Doom Patrol could be making an appearance. Well, my friends, with the second volume of Teen Titans: Earth One solicited in the DC June releases, it seems like we're one step closer.

TEEN TITANS EARTH ONE VOL. 2 HCWritten by JEFF LEMIRE Art and cover by ANDY MACDONALDAfter months on the run from the twisted project that created them, Cyborg, Terra, Beast Boy and Garth are near their breaking point, barely surviving on what they can steal, squatting in the ruins of an abandoned subdivision. But as they reach their lowest ebb, their creator, Dr. Niles Caulder, is ready to make his move…and they’re about to learn that they weren’t the only kids to go through Caulder’s twisted process! There are more children with powers out there, and unlike our heroes, they were raised for only one purpose—to be the living weapons Caulder wants ALL his Titans to be!Writer Jeff Lemire (GREEN ARROW, ANIMAL MAN) teams up with artist Andy MacDonald (THE NEW 52: FUTURES’ END) to deliver the next chapter in the Earth One series! On sale AUGUST 10 • 144 pg, FC, $22.99 US

Here's the accompanying cover image. 

And, just for fun, here's a panel from Volume 1 with Rita Farr, drawn by Terry Dodson.

The Doom Patrol make a grand appearance in the Jim Krueger and Alex Ross story from some time ago. I'm pretty sure I've dropped some images here from that glorious piece, but that's not going to stop me from dropping another one.

Yeah. I've been away. So what? You've been away too. All that matters is that we're here. Now. Together. With Scott Porter. Who is opening some Heroclix boxes.


Well, so THIS:

Scott Porter has unboxed Heroclix before. Honestly, I know as much about Scott Porter as I do how to play Heroclix. And none of that matters, since there are some new Doom Patrol 'Clix in the set. Like CRAZY JANE!! Crazy. Jane.

Here's a link to the first of (so far) four videos. Will Porter pull any Patrollers?

Super Hero High (or Elasti-Girl Friday 24)

Keeping it short, as I've got a trio of reviews for a pair of sites to knock down, some NYCC2015 news to ingest, and a football game to go watch, but in case you haven't heard, DC is throwing the marketing ideas at the wall to see what sticks.

One of those ideas is DC Super Hero Girls. Seven of DC's more recognizable and diverse characters have been selected to lead the charge on this idea, but the universe behind it seems much larger, trying to embrace more of the DC Universe than just Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Batgirl, Katana, and Bumblebee. Yes, Doom Patrol's very own (although she was a Titan first and more memorably) Karen Beecher has made the leap into a major merch push.

You can catch the full (is it really full?) video here, along with links to the characters, products, games and whathaveyou. BUT, the one thing I noticed, coming from the DC Super Hero Girls line, is our very own Elasti-Girl. It's not as tough a brain teaser as "Where's Waldo?", but it takes a little dedication to find (presumably) Rita in the image below, taken from the aforementioned clip.

And welcome back, Gal Fridays. I've missed you.
