Episode 87: Come In Out Of The Rain OR I Believe It

After a brief hiatus that is nowhere near as long as the wait between Doom Patrol issues, Mike and Paul are back with another wonderful episode of Waiting for Doom!

From the Podbean feed:
There is another world. There is a better world. Well...there must be.

Down on Derington Way - 13:09
Doom Clock - 17:35
Doomsplaining - 20:36 - This week we reach the end of another era in Doom Patrol history, as we take a look at issues 62 and 63 of volume 2, from Grant Morrison and Richard Case - Morrison's final issues.
Mailbag O Doom - 58:12 - We read your responses to the question, "What piece of Doom Patrol merchandise would you approve?"

I'm going to break from the show order to get right into the images from Doom Patrol (volume 2) #62 and #63.

Here's the cover for #62

And some interiors

Not the most intimidating lineup, but I'll take 'em. 

Ah, Rebis, always glass half cracked. 

Pseudo-Chief is not the best welcome wagon. 

I believe it too, Dorothy. 

Cliff calling it like it is. 

Danny's is a MUCH better welcome wagon. 

Pure inspiration. And so informative to the current DP (v6) run. 

Splendid work from Case. 

The tunnel between worlds. 

'Sup ape-faced girl?

And Grant Morrison's last issue on the Doom Patrol, #63.
A rare, but welcome Richard Case cover. 

Here's a peek at the goings on in that issue:
The Empire of Chairs. I wonder how Mr. Case felt about drawing so very many chairs. 

Doomed, I say! 

Challenging Marcia's professionalism. 

Cliff and Rebis never let Jane down. 

The crux of Doom Patrol #63. 

What are you doing? I mean besides reading this blog. 

KLIKLOK - John Workman lettering for the ages. 


Come in out of the rain. 

Rachel Pollack's thoughts as Grant Morrison departs. 

Derington Way
As always, the guys took a stroll down Derington Way. And, as always, I still owe y'all that Derington by Way of Bonvillain bit. We'll get there. I promise. 

For now, here's an Instagram post from Gerard Way about Bug. 

Here's some stuff from Nick Derington, starting with an Instagram post from him: 

And a couple tweeted images. 

A little added bonus!
New construction on Derington Way! And it's Allred!
Previews World posted an interview on Sunday, 12 March 2017. You can check it out here. It's about Bug!: The Adventures of Forager by Lee and Michael Allred coming up from Gerard Way's Young Animal line. The first issue is available in May, so be sure to check it out if you're a New Gods fan, an Allred fan or someone just looking for an offbeat new read.

In the interview, Lee Allred says, "Forager is a child of two worlds, belonging to neither. Not the underground Bug Colony, not the floating sky-city of the New Gods. That alienation, that search for one's own place, is a unifying theme of Young Animal titles."

And there you have it, another post on My Greatest Adventure 80 to match a wonderful episode of Waiting for Doom. 

Tune in next week when the fellas field your answers to the Question of the Week
What fictional character would you like to see join the Doom Patrol?
