This comic is loaded with goodness. The main event is the continuation of Cave and Chloe Carson’s story (with Wild Dog of course) and the introduction of a new character from Cave’s past. And it’s a great jumping-in point for the 2nd arc after the strangeness of Issue 7. The creative team keeps pushing and the books keep getting better. There is a lot of pride amongst this team and it is well earned.
Then we have a new “Wonderful World of Rocks” to fill in more background on Cave’s world, followed by a brand new Bane’s Coloring Corner, then a spotlight on Doom Patrol colorist Tamra Bonvillain, where you can take a look at her process— really great stuff in there if you are curious about how comics are colored. Lastly, there is a new editorial written by me, about being on the road for books and music.
Everyone did an amazing job on this one, and it is well worth checking out.
Excellent variant cover (on the right) by Yanick Paquette and Nathan Fairbairn, and on the left the usual awesomeness from the art team of Michael Avon Oeming and Nick Filardi.
