When life stops making sense, you can always count on music. Perhaps it’s inevitable, then, that the chaos of Gerard Way and Nick Derington’s DOOM PATROL would yield—or maybe even require—an official playlist.
To make your mark on the future, it helps to take stock of where you’ve been. 2017 promises to be an exciting year for DC and its fans, but before we celebrate the new year, we thought we’d look back on 2016 and consider some of the places we’ve been. DC made some bold choices in the worlds of comics, film and TV, and many of them set our course for the months and years ahead. The past year was full of memorable moments, but some of these moments held real significance. Some of them really mattered. So as we do every year at this time, we thought we’d discuss a few of them.
We're knee-deep into DC's Young Animal imprint. Most of the titles are at least two issues in, and we're learning more and more about these comics for dangerous humans with every release. In this case, dangerous means offbeat and not like everyone else. These aren't stories about everyday folks. One of the best parts about the Young Animal line is how it puts bright lights on more eccentric characters who haven't had the chance to shine in the pages of DC Comics in a while or maybe ever.
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.
