DOOM PATROL by Ron Salas



Sad to say my only experience with Doom Patrol is the Grant Morrison run and part of the Rachel Pollack run. AS a result of this, I only understand half of what went on so my knowledge of these guys isn't that deep. I always liked their offbeat nature, though, and thought that they pretty much epitomized punk for me.

Oh wow! I was waiting for the Morrison / Pollack era Doom Patrol to show up! (Also, it'd be awesome if someone drew Scott Fischer and no one knew who he is. LOL.)

Ahh, Ron, that's fantastic!!!

And don't sweat the details. Hell, I know NOTHING about Doom Patrol. Like, nothing :(

Good times. I really never understood the book either.

Great stuff. I stopped collecting "Doom Patrol" before they reached this edgy redesign. Glad to see them worked up with one of the later concepts.

I don't see the image. Anyone else having that issue?

I'm not even familiar with the Morrison run, but this makes me want to read it, Ron. So loose and brushy, love it.

Thanks a bunch everyone!

Hisham - I probably need a reminder of who Scott Fisher is.
Daniel - It's coming up for me. Can you hit refresh?
