Episode 90: April, You Fool, Check Out That Keen Teen Scene! OR Mike Allred Solo!

No foolin'!
Mike, Paul, Rifty, and WilFreD are back at it again! So we need a post to match, right? 

Here's the Podbean link and text. 

We're BACK! A bit late than usual, but it's due to shenanigans. No time to explain - LET'S GET PATROLLING! 

Down on Derington Way - 6:47
Doom Clock - 12:13
SURPRISE! New segment! GASP! What's it all about?? You'll have to tune in to find out!!
Doomsplaining - 21:19 - Time for something completely different, as we take a look at a story featuring the Doom Patrol and the Teen Titans, from issue 7 of 'Solo', by Mike Allred!
Mailbag O Doom - 36:37 - super short condensed version of the mailbag this week, as there wasn't a QOTW. I'm sure you'll survive.
Here's the imagery for Solo #7 

Let's start with the cover. 

And the interiors. 

No one in comics today does groovy like Mike Allred. Even if by "today" I mean 2005. 


All the grooviness. 


Bunny. Slippers. 

The Chief will teach you music appreciation! 

Thus ends the party. 
Solo #7 includes an Hourman story, a Metal Men pin-up, a Batman (1966ish) adventure, and a story about the Comic Book Clubhouse. The end of the issue comes together in a wonderful celebration of all things Allred, including a shot of Hawkman leading the charge into the adult coloring book fad. 

New Segment

I've teased it here, but the way things have timed out (read: the busy-ness that finds me), I haven't been able to give it the time yet, but we'll get there. I call it ReByrne. 

Derington Way.

It's cancelled. 
It's not.

It's on hiatus.

It's back. 
Long story short: there will be a significant wait between Doom Patrol (v6) #6 and Doom Patrol (v6) #7.

Doom Patrol #6 is slated for 19 April. According to the reports rolling out of WonderCon, Doom Patrol #7 will be out sometime in July. Here's hoping. 

In the interim, we'll make sure to throw a few posts up here. 

For now, enjoy this shot from the WonderCon panel of Gerard Way sporting the Doom Patrollers uniform. 

Until next time, my friends, here's the Question of the Week

What's your favorite Disney movie? 


  1. Which one is Gerard Way? I can't see a uniform!

    I loved the surprise segment at the end... the bit before that was good too.

  2. Way's the second one i, wearing the blue Robotman shirt that both Mike and Paul own, hence a DP uniform.
