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.
Let's cut to the chase: We've got an early look at the first issue of DOOM PATROL #1, right here. Written by Keith Giffen with amazing art from Matthew Clark and featuring a METAL MAN co-feature by Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and artist Kevin Maguire, it's hard to think of why anyone would pass the issue up, no? But we refuse to miss a chance to show some of these great-looking pages. The world's strangest Super-Heroes are back, and whether you think you know them or not, Giffen and Clark are pouring themselves into this new series, which -- as they've both stated -- is a dream come true.
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.
You've heard bits and pieces about the upcoming DOOM PATROL series. Matthew Clark. Keith Giffen. METAL MEN co-feature, etc. But we've got a ton more stuff to reveal this week and next. So why not we'd stoke the fire a bit with some of Clark's design sketches for the series? Click below.
