    4.5 stars because of the release schedule...but man was this a trip!

    World: I love the art, Derrington is one of my favorite current artists and he brings so much life and character and style for the book.

    4.5 stars because of the release schedule...but man was this a trip!

    World: I love the art, Derrington is one of my favorite current artists and he brings so much life and character and style for the book. This book would be nothing without his art setting the tone and the look for this insane world, I love it. The world building is utterly bonkers and fantastic. This is a full circle tale from what we saw with the first issue of the young animal version of Doom Patrol and the pieces that all come together to bring us a weird insane trippy world that is so insane it's hard to describe, you either think it's brilliant or you think it's just rubbish (I think it's brilliant).

    Story: If this book had sequentially came out before Milk Wars this story would have made my brain explode. I loved Milk Wars and the against current norms and general embracing of weirdness and the fringe that that book was and this was the story that should have lead up to it. The Retconn and The Disappointment was started here and if I had the context with which this story established Milk Wars would have been even better, but alas the release schedule really messed that up. That being said this arc is insane and meta and also so much a love letter to Morrison's run of Doom Patrol that I can't help but love it. Are we trying to judge this arc and this series with logical eyes or are we looking at it as a celebration of just plain weird and odd and the other that makes this so special. The meta text with fan fiction and Cliff really made me gasp and the ideas behind Terry and of course the Morrison created Mister Nobody and the Brotherhood of Dada is utterly fantastic. If you go back and read the Magical Bus arc from Morrison you will find the framework and insanity that is found in this iteration, the Brotherhood of the Nada. This story is not for everyone, if you don't want your stories to be trippy and you want a straight logical story with set rules than this book will make you nuts. But if you want an acid trip of a book that's so different and so creative and you see that there are no rules and the spirit of Nobody is in every fibre of this book, you will love it. Then there's the Retconn and Disappointment stuff which will further drive you insane with happiness or annoyance. I love this book and this story.

    Characters: Bonkers. I don't want to ruin anything for readers but the cast of characters are amazing, insanely original and nostalgic at the same time. From Spacecase to Rita Farr this book has some of the most unbelievable characters, add to that the banter, perfect. I can't say anything else cause the heart of this book are the characters and they are amazing.

    I am biased, I just simply love the Doom Patrol and the weirder and more unconventional they are the more I love them. This is a manifesto for fringe and weird and just unorthodox storytelling that perfectly encapsulates what the Young Animal line has been doing.

    I love this book!

    Onward to the next book!

    *I didn't know what to put in for dates read because I have been reading all of DC Young Animals as they come out and just don't have time to put each one in individually*

  • Caleb

    This is my favorite comic book. The art is beyond wonderful. Great storyline. I love how they brought back Mr. Nobody.

    Not as strong as the first volume. There was a lot going on in this volume that it's kinda hard keeping track. Cool to see the Brotherhood of Nada, which proved more of a love-hate thing because not much depth and development was thrown at it. Well, a lot was left unresolved, let's hope the next volume redeems this one.

  • Craig

    Beautiful artwork, but the story just rattles apart. The fact that MILK WARS ruined two big reveals of this issue is also incredibly disappointing.

    This was a jumbled, confusing, at times incoherent, mess. It is trying exceptionally hard to be trippy, at the expense of any semblance of a plot. I enjoyed the first volume quite a bit so this was a pretty big letdown. I haven't read Morrison's Doom Patrol (it's on my list), but I get the feeling it's almost a requirement to understand any of what's happening here. I thought the point of Young Animal was to bring these weird characters to a new generation. That's great as long as it doesn't req

    This was a jumbled, confusing, at times incoherent, mess. It is trying exceptionally hard to be trippy, at the expense of any semblance of a plot.

I thought the point of Young Animal was to bring these weird characters to a new generation. That's great as long as it doesn't require doing research on the previous generation to understand what's happening!

    Derington's art is great and I enjoyed the one issue Allred cameo. Both seem to be a good fit for the series and these characters. But beyond that I wouldn't recommend this. Maybe you're smarter than me and will get it or maybe if you've read Morrison's run this all makes sense.

    The Brotherhood of Evil, having previously become the Brotherhood of Dada, return once more, this time as the Brotherhood of Nada. And their line-up is weird enough that it would by no means have disgraced the Morrison run which, as ever, remains this series' touchstone. But the real threat is stranger still...albeit slightly undermined by the fact that, given the ridiculous late running of this book, the crossover it has now finally finished setting up was over and done with a few months back.

Still a good read, though. I like a book where the heroine isn't remotely ashamed of having shagged someone who happened to be her transmogrified cat.
