'Doom Patrol Vol. 1: Brick by Brick' by Gerard Way with art by Nick Derington is a reboot of a classic DC series. It's part of the new Young Animal imprint and I really liked it.
Casey Brinke drives an ambulance with her partner Sam. Her life is pretty crazy, but it's about to get even more surreal. She finds a broken up robot with a human brain. She meets up with his teammates too, a man wrapped in bandages, and a talking ambulance for starters.
This is a weird comic, and as reviewer states states, it's more to be experienced than read and understood. It's best to just jump in and enjoy the ride. The art by Nick Derington is some of my favorite, and I really like how the main character is so upbeat. The funny thing is, I'm more familiar with Gerard Way from his work on comics than his musical fame. I've enjoyed everything by him I've read, but I think this is my favorite.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
