It's been pushed back a few times, and Way's been apologetic on social media for the delays. The last date was January 25th, but they've missed the first two dates, so who knows?

Good issue. Cliff and Larry stand trial for violating Negative Space and Larry makes a decision about his future and is granted and interesting "Gift" by the negative-verse. We learn more about Danny's time as a brick and get a glimpse of what happened to Jane. Casey tries to escape, wanting nothing to do with Danny and her origin, but upon seeing the state of Danny and the massacre of his population for burgers, she relents and accepts the mantle of Space Case. The plan now is to travel back in time and stop the violation before it happens, but not before they take a detour and put the band back together.

There's some samples of a Bane colouring book in the backup that are pretty fun.

Touring Bgtzl and Bgztl with M...
Doom Patrol 3

Flex Mentallo gives Casey a tour of Danny. This is essentially a reprise of the entire Morrison run. So, if youíve read that then thereís nothing new here and youíve paid pennies for a trip down memory lane you could have done yourself. Elsewhere, Larry is involved in a subplot with and a Negative Space alien. So far, itís a marginally different way of firming a negative being than the start of the Morrison run. It still feels a bit like going over old ground. Typing of which, we get another page with Niles Caulder. These are quite fun but in the main story, the main characters remind us of what kind of guy he really is. The villains continue to be utterly dull.

The bright spot is Casey. We see her origin, and itís a good take on previous concepts (that Iím not going to spoil). Itís a book that rests heavily on the laurels of what went before it, and really has to start standing on its own furry alien paws.

I guess I'm a little more kindly disposed towards it, maybe just because "early/proto Vertigo nostalgia" ticks my box a little harder. I also think that Morrison's run was more cool and cerebral, while Way's run is more warm and frenetically energetic.

Been re-reading loads of old-school DP stories, in totally random order -- Morrison, Pollack, Drake, even Kupperberg!

I'd forgotten the sheer awesomeness of Brendan McCarthy's character designs from the Morrison era -- Sleepwalk rocks!

I didn't realize those weren't Richard Case designs. I guess after the scissormen they decided he needed some help in that regard.

ROTFLMAO rotflmao

Case does have his fans, and I respect their opinion. Even Ted McKeever, the...challenging...default artist during Pollack's run, has his fans.

Personally, though, I think the best interior art during the 1989-1996 DP run was when Scot Eaton & Tom Sutton respectively guest-penciled & guest-inked issue #70 -- Coagula's first appearance!

Despite a pretty dismal start, I actually thought Richard Case was a perfect fit for Morrison's Doom Patrol. I don't think I ever remember caring for him on anything else, though. I expected to like him on Shade, but I didn't really care for his issues, and not just because the writing was off course by that point.

I thought Case's art on Doom Patrol was great. My one problem was when he suddenly gave Dorothy Spinner an overbite even though she never had one before.

You should see some of the Doom Patrol commissions he's done recently, including this really gorgeous Victorian-style group commission.

The latest DC comics solicitations include the second Way Doom Patrol trade. It contains issues seven through 11. So I guess they have just given up on that 12th issue. I'm not sure what that holds for the future. Hopefully it just means rather than protracting this delayed Siri is endlessly, they are tying off and not so that they can regroup and do whatever they are going to do going forward. If they haven't canceled any of the other young animal books, I can't imagine they would just cancel the flagship.

I've really been enjoying Way's DP, so I'm sad to announce that I was quite bored with the DP/JLA special. I didn't actually finish it. Bizarre recreations of the 50s subtly showing it's dark underside are common enough that it needs something special to make it pop, and this just doesn't. And Way's DP has enough shiny optimism that them. Wing judged for being too dark doesn't really make sense.

Still, it looks like the other specials may not be tying directly into this story, so maybe there's hope for some of them.
