Episode 93: New Sexy Adventures OR Shopping?!

MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU! Or Happy Spacemas! Or Magnifcient New Podcast Episode Day! Ok, well, it's a little after the actual new podcast episode day, but the point is the same: there's more Waiting for Doom episodes in the world today!


Here's the lowdown on Episode 93. Check it out:

Dryballs! (But whose??) Porkals! (Not a typo) Lost minds and loose heads! (Literally) Endings and beginnings! (Yup) Sexy ghosts! (OH MY!) Trolleys full of poo! (What?!) Paul has questions and Mike may be a prevert! (Day ending in 'y', really). LET'S GET PATROLLING!Down on Derington Way - 5:33Byrne For You - 9:54Doom Clock - 11:08Doomsplaining - 15:10 - It's the end of one story and era, and the beginnings of another! This week we look at issues 66 and 67 from volume 2 of the Doom Patrol, by Rachel Polack, Richard Case and Linda Medley!Mailbag O Doom - 51:55 - We read your responses to the question, "Which comic book character would you like to have a ride along with?"

Here's the goods from Doom Patrol (volume 2) #66, starting with the Richard Case cover.
Case covers the book containing his final interiors. 

The creators for this issue:

And the interiors.
Cliff punching stuff and people. All is well. 

Niles Caulder is NOT makin' friends with Will Magnus.


Oddly, this never caught on in the arcades. 

Dorothy's in charge now, Caulder. Dorothy's in charge. 

Niles hates being touched on the top of his head. HATES. IT. 

How about some images from Doom Patrol (v2) #67?

Another strong, weird (weird, strong?) cover. 

The credits for DP(v2) #67
Dorothy makin' friends. 

Cliff's not so good at makin' friends. 

We've ALL had days like this. 

"Remaindered". Man, I hate math. 

Like Cliff, I am not a fan of Costco on Saturdays. 
Even when he's just a head, the Chief is still a dick. 

Derington by Way of Bonvillain
Here's a bit from Gerard Way from 21 April. 

And a couple sketches from Derington's Twitter. 

Mr. Fantastic from 21 April.

Batman from 4 May. Because May the Fourth be. . .Batman?!
Super-extra-bonus, because I slacked so badly in finishing this post: 

Here's a bit about Tamra Bonvillain. She was featured in the Who's Who for Young Animal in BUG! The Adventures of Forager #1 (which is a wacky fun Kirbytastic read!) 

Question of the Week
Who is your favorite fictional cop (police officer)?

Episode 92: Holy [CENSORED] I’m Alive! OR All Love Soft Home!

Huzzah! Paul's back and ready to dive into a discussion of Doom Patrol (volume 6) #6!!

Let's see what the guys had to say about the episode up on Podbean.
After a bit of a hiatus, your favourite podcast about your favourite superhero team is BACK! It's like a zero-cholesterol, no-trans-fat, gluten-free, hypo-allergenic, vegan all natural food additive - for your ears! LET'S GET PATROLLING!Down on Derington Way - 12:30Doom Clock - 18:46Byrne For You - 22:00Doomsplaining - 26:20 - It's time for an ALL NEW ISSUE of Doom Patrol - HUZZAH! This week we take a look at the conclusion to the first arc of volume 6, with issue 6 by Gerard Way and Nick Derington!Mailbag O Doom - 55:07 - We read your responses to the question, "Which DC villain / villainous team would you like to see the Doom Patrol face?"
Here's the covers: 

So what are we waiting for?! Let's take a look at those delicious interiors!

Weirdest death. . .

All. The. Colors. And Doodlebug. 

It all comes full circle to Doom Patrol (v6) #1. 



Derington makes the panel border interactive. LOVE this stuff. 

Might just be me, but it sure looks like the brick is coming OUT of Jane's noggin. 

Paul's favorite panel. 

So good at being bad. Terry None has some grand plans. 
 And now for a bit from Derington by Way of Bonvillain.

Nick Derington made a Fugg. Want. 

The poster that comes with the Record Store Day picture disc. 

Back row: Jonathan Rivera, Nick Derington
Front row: Jody Houser, Cecil Castellucci, Gerard Way

And, just in case you were feeling a bit incomplete, here's my review of the issue from Comicosity, in which I say: 
There’s also beautiful, candy-dream color work from Bonvillain, who uses more pink and light purple than should be reasonable in a comic titled Doom Patrol, even if there is a crash-landing in New Mexico and explosions in space. 

And, finally, the Question of the Week: Which comic book character would you most want to have a ride along with?

Episode 91: Waiting for ProTeen OR ProTeen's Shake Brings the Boys to the Yard

It happened! Paul Hix took a day off, so I snuck in and test drove his action chair with Waiting for Doom stalwart, Mike!

Time for an all new episode of WAITING FOR PRO-TEEN! WhutWHUUT! Kick back and chill with your ProBros (one is a surprise GUEST HOST!) before you have an episode about issues and issues with episodes, and LET'S GO PRO!
Actually, something doesn't seem quite right about all that... 
  • Down on Derington Way - 8:14
  • Doom Clock - 12:56
  • Byrne For You - 20:41
  • Doomsplaining - 24:58 - Time to mix the old(ish) with something new(ish), as we dive into the meaty messages hidden between the covers of Doom Patrol Volume 6 issue 1: the Director's Cut! A behind the scenes look at the work of Gerard Way and Nick Derington, with special appearances by Shelly Bond!
  • Mailbag O Doom - 45:49 - We read your responses to the question, "What is your fav-our-ite Disney film?"

So let's get to the visuals from the Director's Cut

The debut of ProTeen! 

The [redacted] about [redacted] was [redacted]. Sheesh. Is this a political transcript?!

Ernie Estrella from SyFy Wire sat down to chat with Gerard Way at Wonder Con last weekend, which you can check out here. The biggest Item I took away from the read and acoompanying video is this bit from Way is that in Casey and Sam, there was "A degree of positivity that was missing from comics that I could channel through those characters." He certainly channeled it. 

As mentioned during the Derington Way segment, here's the link from Comicosity about BUG! and the Wonder Con panel. Heck, I'll even include the BUG! cover. 
So there you have it. A Waiting for Doom in the can. Well, in your ears at least. 

Don't forget, fellow Patrollers, we're looking for YOUR donations for Paul's reading library for the John Byrne issues. If you can help, drop a note here, on the Facebook page, or hit up WilFreD on Twitter. 

Until next episode, be good to each other. And answer this Question of the Week
Which DC villain/bad guy/rogues gallery have you always wanted to see the Patrol face?

Episode 90: April, You Fool, Check Out That Keen Teen Scene! OR Mike Allred Solo!

No foolin'!
Mike, Paul, Rifty, and WilFreD are back at it again! So we need a post to match, right? 

Here's the Podbean link and text. 

We're BACK! A bit late than usual, but it's due to shenanigans. No time to explain - LET'S GET PATROLLING! 

Down on Derington Way - 6:47
Doom Clock - 12:13
SURPRISE! New segment! GASP! What's it all about?? You'll have to tune in to find out!!
Doomsplaining - 21:19 - Time for something completely different, as we take a look at a story featuring the Doom Patrol and the Teen Titans, from issue 7 of 'Solo', by Mike Allred!
Mailbag O Doom - 36:37 - super short condensed version of the mailbag this week, as there wasn't a QOTW. I'm sure you'll survive.
Here's the imagery for Solo #7 

Let's start with the cover. 

And the interiors. 

No one in comics today does groovy like Mike Allred. Even if by "today" I mean 2005. 


All the grooviness. 


Bunny. Slippers. 

The Chief will teach you music appreciation! 

Thus ends the party. 
Solo #7 includes an Hourman story, a Metal Men pin-up, a Batman (1966ish) adventure, and a story about the Comic Book Clubhouse. The end of the issue comes together in a wonderful celebration of all things Allred, including a shot of Hawkman leading the charge into the adult coloring book fad. 

New Segment

I've teased it here, but the way things have timed out (read: the busy-ness that finds me), I haven't been able to give it the time yet, but we'll get there. I call it ReByrne. 

Derington Way.

It's cancelled. 
It's not.

It's on hiatus.

It's back. 
Long story short: there will be a significant wait between Doom Patrol (v6) #6 and Doom Patrol (v6) #7.

Doom Patrol #6 is slated for 19 April. According to the reports rolling out of WonderCon, Doom Patrol #7 will be out sometime in July. Here's hoping. 

In the interim, we'll make sure to throw a few posts up here. 

For now, enjoy this shot from the WonderCon panel of Gerard Way sporting the Doom Patrollers uniform. 

Until next time, my friends, here's the Question of the Week

What's your favorite Disney movie?
