Summary
Casey Brinke is a young EMT, working the graveyard shift and dealing with a past so bizarre, she's not sure what's real and what's make-believe. With her partner, Sam Reynolds, she's about to blaze a path through the darkest alleys and blackest hours of the city. The people she finds there--Robotman, Crazy Jane, Negative Man, and Flex Mentallo-- will blow your mind. Together, these incredible beings have redefined what it means to be a superhero. Now their power rests in eager new hands

Review
  • Grades 9-12 This manic, frenetic comic, which resurrects a superhero team created in the 1960s, will likely befuddle anyone lacking background knowledge of the original Doom Patrol story arcs, but it’s best to just lean into the mania. It opens on Casey Brinke, an ambulance driver, and her partner, who’s waxing poetic about a gyro in which an entire universe exists. From there, readers zip around to other characters in increasingly weird jams. About halfway through, a plot starts to come together, and the disparate story lines begin to merge into one semicoherent narrative, but that’s hardly the point of Doom Patrol. The bizarre superheroes, comically grotesque villains, over-the-top banter, and zany plot twists are entertaining all on their own, and readers willing to sit back and enjoy the ride won’t be disappointed. Befitting the rabid story line, Derington and Fowler’s artwork, with colors by Tamra Bonvillain, is a riotous display of bright candy colors, surreal character designs, and beautifully executed action. Comics fans tired of the same old gritty, brooding superheroes will be elated by the nuttiness here. -- Hunter, Sarah (Reviewed 6/1/2017) (Booklist, vol 113, number 19, p73)
  • Way (The Umbrella Academy) delivers a reunion that pulls a lot of the past into the future as this classic DC team tries to reunite around a new face, ambulance driver Casey Brinke. This requires a reintroduction to some classic characters like Robotman and Negative Man, and time to let readers get to know Casey and care about her mysterious role in the reformation of the team. In rounding up players from the past, including the ever-morphing sentient roadway, Danny the Street—now an ambulance as well as other things—and the unstable Crazy Jane—now a crucial final component to the team—Way offers a mind-bending chase through an alternate reality. While fans of previous versions of Doom Patrol will enjoy the reappearance of old favorites, Way’s breezy, humorous tone welcomes new recruits. Artist Derrington provides a cartoonish flair to the fun, and Bonvillain’s coloring adds a vibrant, surreal edge. (June) --Staff (Reviewed 06/26/2017) (Publishers Weekly, vol 264, issue 26, p)
