+ Pull List

The secret of Terry None (maybe)! The return of old enemies (usually)! Casey eats S**t (again)! Strange babies (possibly)! Ungrateful cats (predictably)! Robotman punches stuff
(of course)! Negative Man goes dark (potentially)! New life and anti-life (because)! All of this and none of it happens as reality begins to transform for the Doom Patrol. The stage is being set for the stage to be reset and you're not going to want to miss the ambulance or you'll never get to the theater on time.

    Its difficult for me to imagine how this all would read to someone unfamiliar with the team, though I expect if they had any sense of fun they couldnt help but enjoy it. Still, for those who have been around, there are always great little gifts, like the t-shirt with Beast Boys image on it, in this one. Read Full Review

    Doom Patrol #9 is the perfect blend of weird and meta-textual without being self indulgent. Read Full Review

    “Doom Patrol” #9 is another strong issue of a series that should be talked about more. It's everything I want from comic books. Read Full Review

    It's nice to be back in this world. It's a bit of a challenge, but the likability of Casey, Cliff and the Reynolds makes it easy to jump back in. The story telling style is unique but exciting. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 22, 2017

    A familiar villain's appearance is cool, but a bit unearned before a series has even gone into double digits. How each character recursively fits into this story is always fascinating, and artistically this title extremely strong. But the constant delays make it difficult to sustain enthusiasm for the book over an extended period. Read Full Review

    When I was ready to let it go because I'm not fond of February Crossover who will force to brought all titles (I expected some disconnect crossover between some title), the team does another wonderful issue (Late, but man that feel so good to read).
    I all stuff they put in it. I want more. Damn I hate you Way & Derington ^^

    Cover - Sublime 2/2
    Writing - I wasn't fond of the black magic part in the other issue, and there the damn artistic team make me love it. I missed the crazy roommate of Casey, and we see her (And casey kiss her, I didn't expect that. But it was cool). 3/3
    Arts - Perfect, love it, the bastard made me sad for those inside the armor, well done 3/3
    Feelings - Man it's the best young animal book and you have to read it. 2/2
    10/10 and more ^^

    Note to French editor : Please don't be scared about the delay & the crossover. I have to have it in my library for make my reader discover it. Please.

    This issue was shockingly good. I'm usually not a fan of this series because of it's weird moments without explanation that make me feel like there's no point behind them. But this issue was solid. It introduced a lot of cool concepts that I want to see explored more. The one thing I still don't care about: Casey. Less focus on her is a good thing. I don't need to know about who she's having sex with every issue.
