- Full Description
Though they are super-powered beings, and though their foes are bent on world domination, all that is conventional ends there. Shunned as freaks and outcasts, and tempered by loss and insanity, this band of misfits faces threats so mystifying in nature and so corrupted in motive that reality itself threatens to fall apart around them — but it’s still all in a day’s work for the Doom Patrol. Discover an entirely new direction in comics, well-drawn and amazingly written.
Originally conceived in the 1960s by the visionary team of writer Arnold Drake and artist Bruno Premiani, the Doom Patrol was reborn a generation later through the singular imagination of a young Scottish author — and the result took American comics in a wholly unexpected direction. In forging their new path, the reborn World’s Strangest Heroes left behind almost every vestige of normality.
16 complete issues, with additional contributors Kelly Jones, Mark Dringenberg, Scott Hanna, and including some amazing covers by Brian Bolland and Simon Bisley. Bonus Pages include "Doom Patrol Prepping." Grant Morrison talks about making over the costumes and in fact the entire logo and cover design, with the help of Simon Bisley. There's also a nice selection of Morrison's thumbnail breakdowns from issue #19.
