    But that last image is so wonderful that it is almost perfect. Read Full Review

    Nick Derington's style is perfect for this type of story. It fits the wacky, colorful aesthetic of this world and its characters. There were some visually entertaining moments throughout. Read Full Review

    Thematically, Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds #7 wraps up the series in a beautiful way. The Doom Patrol has always been a different kind of title, but this run under Gerard Way's Young Animal imprint has been especially satisfying. With the delays to this title, one should undoubtedly go back and read all 7 issues in one sitting to get the full effect. Thanks to all the wonderful creators on this title, especially Way, Nick Derington and Tamra Bonvillain who started it all in Doom Patrol #1 way back in September, 2016!

    If you haven't been following the series, there likely isn't a rush on picking it up anytime soon especially with a lackluster ending due to early cancellation, but for fans who have stuck with it, Doom Patrol: Weight of the World's #7 does capture a lot of the fun and heart that made the series worthwhile to begin with.

    It's not an awful ending for Doom Patrol, but it fails to deliver on the series' original promise. Read Full Review

    Wonderful madness. This was a bit less great than the previous series, but this series had so many complications. Aside from the lesser art and the smaller scale, I think it is a success. It is a miracle we even got a second one. Sacrifices had to be made for the return of MCR.

    And so the second, weaker section Gerard Way's Doom Patrol comes to a close, as does the series itself. There's nits I can pick (like Jane's weirdly bland characterization, the endless delays that make it difficult to even remember who some of these characters are, or the many ideas that were tossed out throughout the series that we can now conclusively say weren't going anywhere) but they're problems I've had with Weight of the Worlds or even Way's Doom Patrol all along and it seems petty to be grumpy about that here at the end. Taken on its own merits, this issue is lovely.

    The resolution to "Planet Cliff" is beautiful and redemptive, and the end of Casey's plot line is perfect. And the art! If you don't want to read literally more

    I don’t feel like I really got what this comic was trying to say. It had some nice concepts but I don’t know that it went anywhere particularly good.

    I'm so glad this series is over, even if, for all intents and purposes, it's been dead since last year. It just does not get what makes Doom Patrol so good. It's not the weird, out there plots or ideas, it's what's said with those ideas. If it means nothing, if there's no point, you lose me. And this issue is the epitome of that. A rush to a conclusion that feels convoluted, unearned and most definitely stupid. I liked one issue in this last run, and it must have been a fluke. I just don't understand the appeal here. The art is pretty good but that's just not enough. Maybe this will make an inevitable re-read of Morrison's run all the better.
