Episode 31 – Doom Patrol: Crawling From the Wreckage

In this episode, Curt and Kevin take a break from titanic teens, movie misanthropes and murderous mutants to tackle a truly uncanny topic: Grant Morrison’s twisted take on the “World’s Strangest Heroes” with a discussion of Crawling From the Wreckage, collecting issues 19-25 of The Doom Patrol, published by DC Comics!

Cliff “Robotman” Steele checks into a psychiatric hospital following the near-destruction of the misfit superteam the Doom Patrol. But he soon joins forces with an intersexual spirit-being and a super-powered woman with multiple personalities to prevent an incursion into our reality by the bizarre metafictional menace of the Scissormen!

Can this newly reconstituted Doom Patrol survive a trip to Orqwith, the City of Bone, and an encounter with the seemingly all-powerful Red Jack, who may or may not have once been Jack the Ripper? And can they gain admittance to that strange society of freaks and geeks known as … The Comics Canon?
