Not only is he writing a new take on Doom Patrol, he’s also the creative force behind “Young Animal”, DC’s new publishing imprint that’s kind of like Vertigo if it was really into punk and zines. As the first book in the initiative and the first mainstream series written by Way, all eyes are on Doom Patrol. Read the rest of this entry
