Science-fiction author Rachel Pollack brings her unique and inventive sensibility to DC’s weirdest super-team! This massive hardcover collects her entire Doom Patrol run for the first time.Starting in 1989, Doom Patrol evolved into something truly bizarre—and brilliant—with some of the most unique ideas in fiction given shape. The book was part of a wave of unbridled creativity that helped inspire the creation of DC’s groundbreaking Vertigo imprint, and its impact is still felt today in the HBO Max Doom Patrol original series. In 1993, writer Rachel Pollack took over Doom Patrol from Grant Morrison, and quickly made the title her own—retaining its offbeat spirit while pushing its characters in new directions, and tackling important social issues in the Doom Patrol’s thoroughly unconventional way. This hardcover omnibus is the first-ever collection of Pollack’s run on Doom Patrol. In these stories, the Doom Patrol must pull themselves together yet again as they move into a bizarre new headquarters, gain two new members and try to cope with the preteen menace known as the Wild Girls! Then, artist Ted McKeever brings his surreal sensibility to the series, bringing it to a fittingly unique conclusion. This volume collects Doom Patrol #64-87, Doom Patrol Annual #2, Totems #1, and Vertigo Jam #1.
