people keep telling me to check out Gerard Way's Doom Patrol. i tried issue 1 of his first Young Animal line. it didn't really do anything for me. felt like it was trying to be something that it was not.

ohhaimark - Jul 19, 2019

Yeah… that's exactly right actually. That forced sense of weirdness stuck with the series in its entirety. Then things got even worse when the schedule was all messed up and half-assed issues came out once every three months. I've heard people talk about this run like it's the best one since Morrison's, which is honestly ridiculous.

The stuff with Cliff Steele was good... Mostly. The stuff with Jude Law forcing fat people to be muscular was not. I don't like weirdness for the sake of it and that's all that was. I wasn't the biggest fan of Way's first run because of it, and that was before I started reading Morrison's run. Now having read some of that, it just makes this feel even more inferior by comparison. But... There are more
