Clay Mann & Marissa Louise knock out the cover. 

Ibrahim Moustafa lent a hand on some of the Rita Farr-centric pages. Very Passion Play. 

Punching some cows with Dale Eaglesham, Tamra Bonvillain, Marissa Louise, and Clem Robins. 

Exactly my reaction at this point in the comic. 

Question of the Week: 
It’s the solitary Question of the Week:
Who is your favourite loner character in comics?

"Wait! What happened to all of the other posts that should have happened?!" you ask. 

(Actually, I'm not sure you asked, since no one has left any comments yet. Fee l free to do so though)

A Derington Dump

Hey y'all!

With every WFD-related post, I try to include an image or two that I've collected from Nick Derington's Twitter feed, mostly because his feed is packed with awesome imagery. Given that I just did a triple-shot of WFD catch-up, I decided to save the Derington-do (sounded better in my head, like daring-do) for a separate post. This is that post.

You're welcome.

Now we know. This is from Doom Patrol/JLA Special #1. 

I have been a huge fan of everything in Jason Aaron's Thor run, but seeing this tribute to Jane Foster might be my favorite bit of the whole thing.

Episode 115: The End is a Terrible Thing to Waste OR Pollack Out

Sure, this is from an episode of Waiting for Doom that came out last year. But this year isn't even a week old yet, so I'm not that far off. Anyway, here's what WilFreD had to say in summary of the episode

Sequels! Unread comics! Unexpected choices in fundraising! More Kbbalistic mysticism than you can shake a possessed doll at! Ending the year by ending a volume - AND revealing a new project! GADZOOKS! LET'S GET PATROLLING!

And now, here's the images, starting with a collection from Doom Patrol (v2) #86.

Zere might be zum muzzer issues with young Niles.  


And now, my friends, the final issue of the second volume of Doom Patrol.
