I’ve read a lot of comics this year, and Doom Patrol certainly takes the top spot for weirdest. That’s not an insult, and I’m pretty sure what Morrison et.al. were going for! This is volume 3, which contains number 35-41 of the comic series. Part of me kept thinking that perhaps it’d make more sense if I’d read from the beginning, but I soon realised that no, I don’t think that would be the case at all. An alien war, a sentient trans street, a team member who suddenly undergoes their own transformation, and a whole bunch of attacks on normality that were warping my brain a bit. The art is surreal, and the dialogue sharply and wittily funny. It’s a hell of a read, and one that has taken my 2020-addled brain months to get through!

About the Author

NSWPRC Officer, Teacher Librarian, English teacher and social media advocate. I've been teaching in Western Sydney for my entire teaching career, and love my job more than I love Neil Gaiman. (That's a lot, in case you're wondering!) I stalk authors (but always politely), fangirl over books, and drink coffee. And one of my guilty prides about my children is that they all have favourite authors. All opinions are my own.
