Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Before writing such critically acclaimed cult comics as The Invisibles, Morrison made his name in 1988 by updating Animal Man, a third-rate 1960s costumed crimefighter. The next year he similarly resuscitated the Doom Patrol, a band of misfit superheroes whose strange powers made society fear and hate them (compare Marvel's X-Men, who debuted at the same time). Morrison's Animal Man drew praise for daring experimentation, but his "World's Strangest Superheroes" raised the stakes by replacing many original cast members with the likes of Crazy Jane, a schizophrenic whose multiple personalities each has its own superpower, and Dorothy Spinner, an ape-faced girl with the ability to distort reality. In this second collection of Morrison's Doom Patrol run, the archvillainous Brotherhood of Evil has been supplanted by the ludicrous but dangerous Brotherhood of Dada. Morrison's outrageously inventive takes on superheroes, which manage to be both smart and silly, may be off-putting to tradition-minded fans. The compensation is that his sensibility draws readers who usually prefer alternative comics. Gordon Flagg

Review

“The craziest superhero story ever told.”
The Atlantic

“Provides readers with a healthy dose of the off-the-wall and the philosophical, concocting a sequential art acid trip that is more Jefferson Airplane than capes and cowls.”
Miami Herald
 
“Watch out for Grant Morrison. He’s a regular comics apocalypse.”
Spin
