The world is going haywire, and it's up to the Doom Patrol to save it from going to S#!%. Weird things continue to happen that only the Chief can (attempt to) explain. Plus, tap dancing, and secret origins revealed!

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Jan 24, 2018

    All of this big blue hippos and inflatable pandas, Mr. Nobody and Richard the clerk at Retconn comes together so delectably that Doom Patrol #10 stands no chance but to be read and re-read, studied, analyzed, dissected, and sampled. This issue IS Doom Patrol, and Way, Derington, Fowler, Bonvillain, and Klein make sure there is no mistaking this for any other title, giving us everything Doom Patrol can be, has been, and should be all in one story. Theres uncertainty in the certain, mystery in the solved, and fun in the danger, and it all comes together so very, very nicely. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Jan 25, 2018

    If I had to pick out something that disappointed me in this issue it would be that Mr Nobody doesnt get as much play as I had expected he would. But that is such a minor quibble. Its not like I could find a single panel in this story that would have been better served with Mr Nobody. Read Full Review

    DOOM PATROL #10 earns the stamp of wonder and weird that the title is notorious for. From mutated civilians, demon squirrels, and mysterious pregnancies, DOOM PATROL never stops the madness. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jan 26, 2018

    This book continues to be wacky and fun. It's unique narrative style entertains and challenges the reader from numerous angles. The only drawback is the erratic publishing schedule. You never know what's going to happen next. Not many books are able to pull this off consistently. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Eric Brown Feb 2, 2018

    If you like the seminal Grant Morrison run of Doom Patrol or just the bizarre kind of comics that came out in the glory days of Vertigo, this book is for you. I love the Doom Patrol, and I look forward to every issue of this book. I am excited to see where Young Animal goes next. Great read! Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Daniel Gehen Jan 26, 2018

    To the surprise of no one, Doom Patrol #10 is batshit crazy. I've read every issue and, while I think I know what's going on, I can't be 100% certain. Maybe it's the beautiful, pop-art inspired work by the art team of Nick Derington, Tom Fowler, and Tamra Bonvillain. Maybe because it's unlike any other book on the market. Maybe I'm a sadist. Whatever the reason, this series keeps pulling me back in. It definitely isn't for everyone, even if it has something for everyone. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jan 24, 2018

    At times,Doom Patrolseems to be Morrisonian for the sake of being Morrisonian, but Way's writing has sly humor and bits of sweet humanity and Derington, Fowler, and Bonvillain's art has a manic, sugar high rush that makes it stand out from DC's more “traditional” books. Plus Robotman punching things a lot is always a good time. Read Full Review

    Make no mistake, this is a gorgeous comic with some fascinating ideas, but it's barely a narrative. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 24, 2018

    This issue is trying to be a little too cute for a series that comes out so irregularly. Next issue's solicit has been pulled already, so like I tell you every time an issue of Doom Patrol comes out, wait for the trade collection. Though the way this issue seemed tossed together like a large salad, that collection may not be worth your time, either. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Feb 17, 2019

    I admit that maybe I'd like this issue more if I had any investment in these characters, but there's only a few that I know and care about that are in this issue. And Superman doesn't show up until the end. It's the equivalent of reading an X-Men comic from an era you're not familiar with, with a team featuring mostly characters you don't know, and things that have been happening in that continuity that you have no idea about.
