    While comic fans have praised certain comics for their realistic portrayal of superheroes and their exploits, there is always a large part of us that clamor for abject weirdness in the pages of our favorite funny books. It has been there since the very start; the need for the surreal. Drama and consequences are all well and good, but every once and awhile you need a book that completely cuts lose in regards to character and ideas. All-New Doop #2 is that book. It’s a book that wears its heart on its sleeve, while throwing itself off the deep end as to how weird it can be and is. While the X-Men universe is home to a great many insane concepts and characters, Peter Milligan, David Lafuente, and Laura Allred present a very convincing case for Doop taking the cake as the weirdest, most charming member of the X-Men universe.

    “All-New Doop #2″ has all of the charm and vibrancy that a Dooper (a fan of Doop, yes, I did just make that up) like myself could ask for. This is a comic that you can enjoy without relying heavily on current continuity in other the X-titles. The underdog can still save the day, but Milligan and company have created enough drama, and suspended belief for long enough, to make reading this series and finding out what happens worth the effort.

    The idea of Doop as a character who exists in the background for a reason is a perfectly realized, perfectly MIlligan, perfectly ridiculous premise. The balance of goofy to dramatic is well-executed, and a part of me is actually rooting for the little guy (though a bigger part finds the concept of Kitty kissing Doop revolting.) In short, All-New Doop #2 is a very Doop-y experience, equal parts adorable, disgusting and thought-provoking, with art that is appropriate (if inconsistent), and earns a very irrational 3 out of 5 stars overall. The fact that Doop was instrumental in the biggest twist of the Battle Of The Atom crossover is more interesting than the love story to me, but I'm enjoying both of the intertwining stories so far… Read Full Review

    "All-New Doop" #2 dips a toe into experimenting with metafiction, but it ends up just being a footnote even for fans who want to relive the convoluted time travel shenanigans of "Battle of the Atom," and the romantic hero role doesn't feel well-structured. Lafuente's and Allred's art is worth taking a look at, but overall, having Doop as a main character hasn't been as satisfying as his previous "marginal" roles. Read Full Review
