The Doom Patrol relaunch from Gerard Way, Nick Derington & Tamra Bonvillain has been consistently delightful and reverent from the outset, with a level of craft and imagination that beget’s it’s continued improvement with each new issue. In this week’s installment, the teams approach to story is further refined while the addition of Tom Fowler as inker takes the already excellent visual element of the series to a whole new stratosphere.

Looking back on last month’s article, I came to the realization that I tend to add more books to a list than I’m actually able to read and, in may cases, afford. There are only so many hours left at the end of the day to tackle my pull list, and, while they are a passion, comic books are not my only hobby. On top of that, I’ve been reading a lot more “older” stuff lately. This list will be more realistic, conservative towards what I think I’ll actually read. If I get to more, great! I’d love to read every good book out there.
After an almost three year hiatus (the last post came out on 4/30/14), I’ve decided to bring back my column “The Haul.” At its inception, I vowed to write something once a week. Not only did that not happen then, but I will not even pretend to make that claim again today. However, what I can promise is to pop in at least once a month for this new endeavor. When “The Haul” first debuted, it was meant as a place where I could talk about whatever was on my mind that week in the world of comics. Having that freedom was nice, but this next iteration will have better specified boundaries. By dropping a lens over this column, I can provide a clearer focus on what it is readers can expect.

Whichever, Doom Patrol is weird. Continue reading This Week’s Finest: Doom Patrol #2
It’s almost back to business as usual as Alex had some last minute business that prevented him from joining the pod this week. Dean & Pat soldier on talking Black Monday Murders, Kill or Be Killed, Black Panther, Detective Comics, Doom Patrol, Moon Knight, Gotham Academy & Glitterbomb. In addition, Dean skips Paper Girls to watch the Bluejays with his dad, Pat finally saw most of Batman vs Superman Dawn Of Justice, Fantasy Football updates and Pat tries not to spoil Game of Thrones for Dean but kind of does before just using an X-Men metaphor.
