The big day is here! Doom Patrol #1 hits the stands and makes quite an impact doing so.
I'm not going to spoil anything, save to say someone doesn't make it home.
I'll share a little more later. I'm going to use this issue as fodder for the next week or so of posts.
Until then, here's THE panel from the book for me.
This issue also contained a sneak peek into Magog, as well as the Metal Men backup (or second feature as DC prefers to label it with political correctness only a standards auditor can appreciate). I truly enjoyed Metal Men, even if it was thematically 180º away from Doom Patrol. Seriously, how can any COMIC fan not find something to enjoy from a tale by Giffen, DeMatteis and Maguire? Even though it was just a preview, Magog is starting to lose me as the gore quotient seems like it is going to be pretty high. We'll see.
More later, after my Doom Patrol review is posted on CBR. Spoilers for the review: I gave the issue 3.5 stars out of 5. It needs to stretch a little more for that perfect 5.
Happy 100th to "Waiting For Doom"!
