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? 


  1. Top episode as ever. It was interesting to hear about the 'director's cut' - well, I'm far to mean to but it. I like this sort of thing as an extra, but not a thing of itself. The Pro-Teen stuff was a highlight, but all those OMG!s would drive me bananas.

  2. Fantastic work Doug, both here on the site and filling in on the show. It's good knowing we have a backup should I ever enter witness protection.
