'Doom Patrol #2' by Gerard Way with art by Nick Derrington is not as strange as the first issue, but it's still degrees of strangeness away from just about everything else. I like it quite a bit.
We start with panels showing the gruesome death of pilot Larry Trainor, but in this world, does death really mean death? And who is the strange man yelling about finding him? While this odd man yells, We observe an exchange of insults by a couple street toughs, one which seems to be a walking literary insult generator. Meanwhile Casey Brinke's roommate seems to have reconstructed Robotman out of the box of parts that Casey found last issue, but what does that mean and who is Larry Trainor?
This issue felt a bit more coherent, but I didn't mind the screwy start to the issue last time. Things seems to swirling into existence from a very chaotic start and that's ok. Gerard Way's way of looking at things is odd, but cool. Nick Derrington lays down some great art,and Tamra Bonvillain's colors make it all pop off the page in interesting ways. I'm really liking this series so far, even if I couldn't tell you exactly what's happening.
I received a review copy of this issue from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this issue.
