Young Animal's Doom Patrol #11, hitting this November, seems like an issue where a bunch of bits all collide. 

Here's the solicit and the cover image for your eyeholes. 

Written by GERARD WAY
Art and cover by NICK DERINGTON
Variant cover by TOM FOWLER
Retailers: This issue will ship with two covers. Please see the order form for details.
Doom Patrol fights Dada and someone becomes a mama. How did life and death become so intertwined? It’s Robotman versus a classic foe as Casey and Terry take us into a whole new territory we’ve never seen before. But could this newness also just be a whole lot of nothing?
On sale NOVEMBER 22 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US • MATURE READERS

Jazz hands! 

Also worth noting is 
Legendary writer/artist John Byrne brought his unique vision to the DC Universe over his decades-long career. Rediscover his classic stories from BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHTS #2, CHRISTMAS WITH THE SUPER HEROES #2, DC COMICS PRESENTS: HAWKMAN #1, DCU INFINITE HOLIDAY SPECIAL #1, THE FLASH 80-PAGE GIANT #1, GREEN LANTERN ANNUAL #3, GREEN LANTERN: GANTHET’S TALE #1, NEW TEEN TITANS ANNUAL #2, OUTSIDERS #11, THE POWER OF THE ATOM #6, SECRET ORIGINS ANNUAL #1 and more!
On sale DECEMBER 13 • 352 pg, FC, $39.99 US

Sure, that's a steep price, but if you like Byrne, there's some fun reads in here. Secret Origins Annual has the origin of the Doom Patrol - and it's the original Doom Patrol plus Arani's Patrol. You could say it's The WHOLE PATROL! No sign of Byrne's version being collected though, although a collection like this could lead to his Doom Patrol run finally finding its way to Comixology. The cover image for this collection has the headlining heroes from Legends, so maybe there'll be a bit of that in there. Who knows?!

This week, I'm just going to let Nick Derington's tweet do all the talking. 

Question of the Week

"What is something you learnt from a comic?"

Personally, I learned how to spell learned properly. What about the rest of you?

. . .and, because it's just not nice to have a post with no images, here's a few I found from the Interwebnets AND a couple very special bonus images with some super-great Richard Case art! 
(Also, Mr. Case sells prints at his con appearances. I'll post up a sliver of the one Darrin and Ruth Sutherland were so kind to procure for me. 

Looseleaf Who's Who for the WHOLE PATROL!  

Internet find #1

Internet find #2

Internet find #3

Shameless endorsement:
Nick Derington is doing the covers for Mister Miracle, a twelve-issue maxiseries from DC written by Tom King with art from Mitch Gerads. Buy it. It's good. Mister Miracle #1 hits Wednesday, 9 August 2017. Until you get it, here's the cover from #4, courtesy of Derington's Twitter feed. 

And, finally: Question of the Week:
Who is your favorite Doom Patroller from the current Way-Derington Young Animal volume?

Episode 99: Fairy Tales and Weird Dreams OR Doug's FINALLY Caught Up After Vacation!


A new one - or the first of a new two episodes of Waiting for Doom. As Paul and Mike describe it on their Podbean
Despite recent tech issues (what, again?!) Mike and Paul return with more DOOM PATROL goodness! Please note that we're not entirely tech-issue-free, as the Technology Gods decided to export this episode rather quietly, so when we say 'Yo, turn it up!', we mean it...anyway, LET'S GET PATROLLING!
Down on Derington Way - 9:50
Doom Clock - 17:17
Doomsplaining - 20:43 -We continue our coverage of the Violet Valley era Patrol, as we look at issues 72 and 73 of Doom Patrol volume 2, from Rachel Pollack and Linda Medley!
Mailbag O Doom - 44:42 - We read your responses to the question, "Who is your favourite anthropomorphic character?"

I'm going to go lightly on the text and captions, but here's the cover from Doom Patrol (volume 2) #72. 

Doom Patrol (v2) #72

. . .and #73

Not a Tom Taggart cover, but a Bob Fingerman piece. 

. . .not creepy at all.

Here's the solicit for Doom Patrol (v6) #10 that the gents mention. As well as a larger version of the cover.
