If you're like me, you read the preview for SHADE, THE CHANGING GIRL #1 in the back of DOOM PATROL #1, tilted your head, and closed the comic eager to learn what would happen next. That's how a preview should work. The story about Loma, an intrepid adventurer and alien running away from her problems, is the second title to be released in DC's Young Animal imprint.
When something inspires you, sticks with you and influences your life, nurture your relationship with it and see what happens. That's what Gerard Way did with comics, and now he's running point on DC's new Young Animal imprint. The first title, DOOM PATROL #1, written by Way, illustrated by Nick Derington and colored by Tamra Bonvillain, is available now, and its entrance is marked with the offbeat tone that will saturate all the series under DC's Young Animal umbrella.
DC’s Young Animal is an exciting new imprint driven by the creative mind of Gerard Way and produced by some of the most fearless minds in comics today. This is something different, inspired by the visionary work of DC’s experimental past, but shaped and focused by the absurdity of today. It’s a place where the World’s Strangest Heroes can return to face a shocking new threat.
