Hey comics fan, got any plans this weekend? If you're like me you're at a bit of a crossroads during this time of year. The NFL season is over, the Olympics are over, Oscar Season is over...what are you supposed to do? Well fear not because Convention Season has just started! That's right, chances are that we'll be bringing the 2010 DC Nation Tour to a town near you sometime soon and trust me when I tell you that it's a show you won't want to miss.
Oolong Island is picking up the pieces after the Black Lanterns' devastating attack. What's next? Only Keith Giffen and artist Matthew Clark know. DOOM PATROL #7 hits today. [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
Few people have more skeletons in their proverbial closets than Niles Caulder, founder of the Doom Patrol. And with BLACKEST NIGHT doing a bang-up job of bringing those skeletons back in the form of Black Lanterns, you can only imagine how complicated things are going to get for the Doom Patrol. Caulder's been playing god for years, and the time for a reckoning is at hand. Check out a few pages from this BLACKEST NIGHT tie-in issue below, from writer Keith Giffen and artist Justiniano, with a few pages from the METAL MEN co-feature, by Giffen, writer J.M. DeMatteis and artist Kevin Maguire.
Remember Mento? Yeah, that guy – goofy helmet, lightning bolt on his chest. After reading this issue, it's a sure bet you won't forget him again any time soon. Oh yeah, and the resolution of that whole "black hole" thing from last issue adds a kinda-sorta new member to the Doom Patrol roster. As for everyone's favorite Metal Men, it's the dynamic debut of Douglas, Robot Hunter! [gallery]
Ready for another dose of Keith Giffen and Matthew Clark's DOOM PATROL? Are you sure? It's a black hole, but it's not a black hole. If you're a Doom Patrol fan, that made perfect sense. And even if not, then you're in for one hell of a ride as the Doom Patrol face off against the most annoying alien this side of G'nort. Who's G'nort? Do we have to spell it out for you? Oh, and the Metal Men in space. Not satisfied? Check out a few pages below to get an idea. DOOM PATROL #2 hits 9/9. [gallery link="file" columns="4"]
Happy Friday, DC Nation! Elisabeth Gehrlein here, DCU editor of…well, a really nice range of titles. One of the things I love about my current slate of books is how varied they are – I’ve got everything on my plate from JONAH HEX to TINY TITANS, with ADVENTURE COMICS and DOOM PATROL and WONDER WOMAN in between. So every day is a genre-bending journey where one minute I could be thinking “Where did those penguins get rocket packs in the first place?” and then suddenly a colorist calls with this disturbing question: “What color should I make the fragments of his shattered legs?”
By now, most of you have seen the pages and variant cover to DOOM PATROL #1 on NEWSARAMA and relived the most insane moments of DOOM PATROL history at COMICS ALLIANCE. But there's more to that pretty piece of art than that.
We've shown off pretty much all of the upcoming co-features on this here blog, so why stop now? The team that brought you JUSTICE LEAGUE INTERNATIONAL, writers Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis and artist Kevin Maguire, will reunite for METAL MEN, which will be coming out in tandem with Giffen and artist Matt Clark's DOOM PATROL this August. Now, we know this team can deliver the goods, but that's no excuse to not show pages. Am I right? So, here, for your viewing pleasure is a sneak peek at Giffen's plot and Maguire's resulting finished pages. [gallery link="file" columns="4"]
