Way as a creator has always been one to wear his influences on his sleeves, so it's not too surprising that as part of Young Animal's presence at November's NC Comicon, the imprint will host a film festival with picks curated by its creators.

Do Good Things: Way, Derington And Bonvillain’s ‘Doom Patrol’ #1 Marks A Strong Debut For Young Animal


This week saw the debut of DC Comics’ new “pop-up imprint” Young Animal, spearheaded by The Umbrella Academy’s Gerard Way. Described as “Comics For Dangerous Humans”, Young Animal seeks to recapture the spark of the Golden Age of Vertigo, while updating it for the 21st century.

Way himself has led the charge as the writer of this week’s Doom Patrol #1, along with Nick Derington on art, Tamra Bonvillain on colors and Todd Klein on letters and while occasionally --- and seemingly intentionally --- confusing, it’s a strong start for DC’s newest imprint.

Give ‘Em Elle: Morrison’s ‘Doom Patrol’, And Groundbreaking Comics Versus the March of Time


Welcome to Give ‘Em Elle, a weekly column that hopes to bridge the gap between old school comics fandom and the progressive edge of comics culture. This week I’ve been thinking about comics as products of the time they were published. If a work like Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol can feel like a comic from the future even ten years after it came out, why does it feel dated today?

Cast Party: Who Should Star in a Grant Morrison ‘Doom Patrol’ Movie?


Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.

Back when I envisioned a movie about the Silver Age Doom Patrol, I promised a Grant Morrison-derived sequel, and that's what we're doing this week. Let's call this movie Doom Patrol: The Painting That Ate Paris, after the collected edition of the second arc by Morrison and Richard Case, which it's based on. We'll also include elements of the previous story, Crawling from the Wreckage, to show this bizarre version of the team coming together.

Gerard Way Unveils New Details About His Young Animal Imprint At DC


Since it was announced at Emerald City Comic Convention, details have been relatively scarce surrounding Gerard Way's so-called "pop-up imprint" at DC, Young Animal. We know the four comics that will make up the line, the creators involved, and tidbits of individual synopses, but not much else.

Last night, Way took to his blog to give fans the first of what will seemingly be a weekly sneak peek behind the curtain of Young Animal, discussing the creative and collaborative processes that went into the genesis of each title. He also unveiled brand new art for each series by the likes of Tommy Lee Edwards, Nick Derington and Michael Avon Oeming.

Until I’m Done Or Until I Get Fired: Gerard Way On His Plans For Young Animal [Interview]


DC has made some interesting moves since its relocation from New York City to Burbank, California, last year, including the upcoming line-wide relaunch DC Rebirth, and a notably uneven line of Hanna-Barbera-inspired comics. Perhaps the most surprising announcement came at Emerald City Comicon earlier this month, when DC unveiled Young Animal, a new line of superhero comics masterminded by Umbrella Academy writer and musician and My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way.

Described as a "pop-up imprint," Young Animal includes a new Doom Patrol series by Way and Nick Derington; a Shade relaunch, Shade the Changing Girl, by Cecil Castellucci and Marley Zarcone; Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye, by Way, Jon Rivera and Michael Avon Oeming, and the Gotham-set Mother Panic, concceived by Way and written by Jody Houser, with art by Tommy Lee Edwards. But that's just the start. ComicsAlliance sat down with Way to find out how Young Animal came to be, what his longterm plans are for the imprint, and how involved he is with all the books across the line.

Embracing the Weird: On the Dawn of the Doom Patrol


On this day in 1963, a new kind of super-team was born. They weren't the clean-cut, respected heroes of the Justice League. They weren't a close-knit family unit like the Fantastic Four. They were a collection of misfits, shunned by the world at large, assembled by a wheelchair-using benefactor to protect the very citizenry that had rejected them. No, not the X-Men — they debuted later that year. We're talking about the Doom Patrol.
