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

    This issue, unlike some past issues, feels more like a random collection of clever visuals and sight gags than it does like an actual comic. Read Full Review
