Doom Patrol #5 is the first time Larry Trainor, Cliff Steele, Flex Mentallo, Casey Brinke, Sam Reynolds, Danny, and Fugg are all brought together. So, in a sense, this is the first true issue of the new volume of the Doom Patrol. And it’s so damn fun. So much happens in this issue that by the end of it, it feels like a collected edition.
There. That's done. Now, here's the link for the corresponding Waiting for Doom episode.
Celebrate good times as we cover a brand new issue! There are spoilers and swear words in this one, so consider yourself warned! LET'S GET PATROLLING!

And here's the images of the issue. With one exception, I'm just going to share panels, not pages. So let's get going on the issue that brings the Whole Patrol (and then some) back together.

One last thing before closing this up, this piece from Way's Instagram:
