The official word on DOOM PATROL
Wed, 05/13/2009 - 7:30am
You saw the Matthew Clark sketches yesterday, and I did promise more details, so here we go: DOOM PATROL #1, from Keith Giffen and Matthew Clark hits in August and will feature a METAL MEN co-feature by Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and artist Kevin Maguire (more on that soon). You've heard bits and pieces in different venues. but now it's all here, in one cozy place. More importantly, we wrangled Giffen to give us the lowdown on the book (and, well, why you should check it out), plus some pretty Clark pages (with Giffen's breakdowns for said pages) to whet your appetite. Take it away, Keith:
"This is the book I've waited my entire career to write. Oddly enough, it's the book Matt's waited his entire career to draw (and does it ever show!). That's got to count for something. Between Matt on Doom Patrol and my old partners in "bwah,ha,ha" on Metal Men (that'd be Mark and Kevin, don'tcha know) how can we possibly go wrong?
Well... we could, but we won't. No. Really.
Tell you what. Pick up a copy, and you tell us."
