Episode 75: Green Monkey Genes Are Cool and Awesome OR Take That, Galtry!

Here we go again, fellow Patrollers! This time Paul and Mike are looking at Teen Titans Earth One Volume 2 and Tales of the New Teen Titans #3 (of 4!). Here's the link to the Podbean. And the link to the Comicosity post for the podcast

When you think of the number 75, you realise it signifies the 'diamond anniversary' of a thing, which usually entails a classy celebration of reaching such a milestone but thankfully you'll find none of that rot here. LET'S GET PATROLLING!
  • Down on Derington Way - 6:39
  • Doom Clock - 11:09
  • Doomsplaining - 15:08 - This week we look celebrate the Doom Patrol on our 75th episode by looking at 2 Teen Titans stories. Oh. Anyway, this week we take a look at Teen Titans Earth One Volume 2, and Tales of the New Teen Titans #3!
  • Mailbag O Doom - 47:56 - We read your responses to the question, "What is your favourite sequel?"

Here are some images to go along with Paul's assessment of Teen Titans Earth One Volume 2

The cover for the book. Safe to say Cyborg's had better days. 

I haven't actually read Volume 2, but there were certainly hints of an homage or re-introduction of the Doom Patrol in Volume 1 as Rita Farr factored into that book. That said, I really can't add much to the commentary, but I sure can provide some images (mostly thanks to Paul!). 

When is Robotman not Robotman?

Kole and Impulse show up to cause problems. 

Tempest, Changeling, Terra, and Cyborg really wonder WHUP is going on. 
Slade Wilson's motto: always make a memorable entrance. 
Don't forget: Raven and Starfire are in this book too! 

Before we go much further, I'm going to cross over to Derington Way to share a cover with y'all. Y'know, the cover for Doom Patrol #5 that Paul was finding so hard to describe.

Alrighty, now let's get to the gorgeous George Pérez art from Tales of the New Teen Titans #3 (which is available on Comixology). 

George Pérez as only Pérez can give us. SO MUCH detail!
And Mento almost looks cool! 

A bit of a dense read, but a good one. 

A George Pérez montage for the win. 
Gar SPAMM!'s Galtry. And no computers were harmed in the making of this spam. 

Return of the Arsenal! 

There wolf! There castle! 

Dating montage of death! 

Apologies for the bars, I screen-capped the pages from the DC Comics app, but didn't clean them up in the interest of getting this post done. 

 And the post is now done, save for the Question of the Week.
This week's Question of the Week is:
Who is your favourite character who hides their face?

Also, before I hang this up, I'll just post this to commemorate Mike's call regarding Casey's parentage. It's in white. So you'll have to highlight. 
Mike thinks Rhea Jones (Lodestone) is Casey Brinke's mom. And, truth be told, this is the same connection I made earlier in the week. And Danny's the dad, as only Danny can be. 


  1. I love Mike's theory on Casey's parentage and your addition to it is thought provoking. The matter is mentioned in Casey's Who's Who page which was included in the Young Animal ashcan. Gloria Brinke is listed as the deceased mother, Richard Brink a.k.a Dick Brinke, Science Dad and Torminox III as the deceased father.

    This may just be placeholder text prior to the development of the series. Hmmm. Loving the speculation!

  2. Not that it matters much now, but I had completely forgotten the mention of Gloria in the YA ashcan! And after Danny's big reveal, I still have more questions about her (and the Science Dad too, I guess).

    Quick, to the Re-Readatorium!
