There are so many great DC comic books debuting or returning this week that we couldn't settle on a single one to spotlight! So with some help from our top three San Diego Comic-Con Convention Correspondent finalists, we're taking a look at four. First, Hector Navarro talks Batgirl with co-writer Brenden Fletcher. After that, Juice From the Box gets the goods on Grayson from co-writer Tom King. Then Josh Evans goes deep with Aquaman writer Cullen Bunn to discuss some of the changes we'll see when the King of Atlantis returns.
Born of experiments and accidents, and cast out from society, the Doom Patrol occupies the weirder corners of the universe.
For some, super powers are anything but a blessing. The Doom Patrol, appropriate to their rather dire-sounding name, are a group of DC superheroes who, for one reason or another, have found themselves struggling against the expectations, judgment and constraints of a society that may not always understand them or their gifts. And for that, they've often found themselves pushed to the margins.
Billions of years ago, a cataclysm split the planet Urgrund in two, forming the twin planets of New Genesis, a sunlit utopia, and Apokolips, an industrialized wasteland. Their populations became known as the New Gods, the immortal denizens of the cosmos who existed outside the constraints of earthly time and space.
