About this item
About the Book"The World's Strangest Heroes continue their adventures in this next collection of Grant Morrison's career-launching run on DOOM PATROL. For the first time, meet Danny the Street and subsequently Flex Mentallo. But the team soon realizes that there may be more to Flex than they first realized...who is the real Flex? Collects DOOM PATROL #35-50"--
Book SynopsisOriginally conceived in the 1960s by the visionary team of writer Arnold Drake and artist Bruno Premiani, the Doom Patrol was reborn a generation later through the singular imagination of a young Scottish author -- and the result took American comics in a wholly unexpected direction. In forging their new path, the reborn World's Strangest Heroes left behind almost every vestige of normality. Though they are super-powered beings, and though their foes are bent on world domination, all that is conventional ends there. Shunned as freaks and outcasts, and tempered by loss and insanity, this band of misfits faces threats so mystifying in nature and so corrupted in motive that reality itself threatens to fall apart around them -- but it's still all in a day's work for the Doom Patrol. Written by Grant Morrison and featuring art by Richard Case, Mark McKenna, Kelley Jones, Mike Dringenberg and Steve Yeowell, DOOM PATROL BOOK TWO collects issues #35-50 of the groundbreaking series and includes a foreword and special sketchbook section from Morrison.
"The craziest superhero story ever told."
-- The Atlantic "Provides readers with a healthy dose of the off-the-wall and the philosophical, concocting a sequential art acid trip that is more Jefferson Airplane than capes and cowls."
--Miami Herald "Watch out for Grant Morrison. He's a regular comics apocalypse."
About the AuthorGrant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous bestsellers -- including THE MULTIVERSITY, JLA, BATMAN and New X-Men -- as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS, BATMAN, INC. and ACTION COMICS. In his secret identity, Morrison is a "counterculture" spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the New York Times bestseller Supergods, a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland.
