In the 1960s, they were DC Comics' misfit super-heroes, a team of borderline freaks who secretly banded together against evil. The team was brought back in 1989 by Grant Morrison, renowned writer of JLA and The Invisibles, who reinvented them as disaffected heroes up against a parade of absurdist villains.

Review: Doom Patrol, Vol. 5: Magic Bus (Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol #5)

User Review  - The Book Geek - Goodreads

I usually like weird and Strange tales, but this was too much. It seemed like it was trying too hard to be surreal and trippy that it was just annoying. I hate to judge the whole series on this one volume but I don't think I will read any more. Read full review

User Review  - Patrick Hudson - Goodreads

I think I preferred this to the last one, but that maybe because I'm getting more used to the diverse tone and a little more tolerant of its wild experimental tendency. It occurred to me while reading ... Read full review

About the author (2007)

Since his entry into the field, Grant Morrison has been hailed as an innovative thinker - using the comic book genre to introduce and expound upon his bold theories of the human psyche.

About the Illustrator:
Anakin Skywalker artist Ken Steacy is a Canadian Air Force brat who decided at age eleven to become a professional comic book artist. He pursued this intent until the magic moment occurred in 1974 with the publication of "Super Student, a two page strip that he wrote, penciled, inked and lettered. This holistic approach has been a hallmark of his work ever since, true to his belief that specialization is for insects, not artists.
He studied film and video as analogies to the sequential narrative at the Ontario College of Art, but drove his profs crazy by turning in comic strips instead of film or video. They finally figured out what he was up to and awarded him a pile of scholarships, including the Lieut. Governor's medal. Since then he has written and illustrated the exploits of practically every popular character you could name, including Astro Boy, Batman, Ironman, Spiderman, and Superman. His four major works in print are: The Sacred & the Profane (co-authored by Dean Motter), Night and the Enemy (stories by Harlan Ellison), Megapowers (written by physicist Jack Weyland) and Tempus Fugitive (which he did all by himself).
Ken spent two intense years at Sanctuary Woods Multimedia creating, producing, directing and illustrating The Awesome Adventures of Victor Vector & Yondo, an interactive CD-ROM series for kids. He later produced a three issue comic book mini-series chronicling the further adventures of VV&Y in print.
He is currently working with Lucasfilm, Random House and Chronicle Books producing stories and computer-rendered illustrations for children's books. He is very happily married to sculptor Joan Steacy and they have two terrifickids, Alex and Raymond.
