Read full description of the books Doom Patrol Vol. 3: Down Paradise Way:
The weird and wacky world of the Doom Patrol continues. Grant Morrison's truly strange and bizarre super-hero team isn't the typical super-hero team. Not by a long shot. To use a great quote (and there are a few choice gems scattered throughout this volume) :
"I'm not complaining, but sometimes it might be nice to just stop a bank robbery or foil a criminal mastermind. You know, like the regular super-guys?"
"Nonsense, Cliff! It's essential that we leave such feeble-minded pursuits to the musclebound cretins who enjoy them. OUR work is far more important."
The entire premise is that there are cases so odd and bizarre that only a bunch of complete weirdos like the Doom Patrol can deal with it. That's what they do. If you pick up Doom Patrol thinking that it is a normal super hero comic, you will be confused and disappointed. But if story scenario and the writing appeal to you then, you will appreciate Doom Patrol for what it is. It is Grant Morrison's copious imagination on display.
This volume has a broad range of stories- ranging from the Men from N.O.W.H.E.R.E (who seek a very normal and banal world) who are trying to kill a sentient street named Danny, who also happens to be a transvestite. Yes. You read that correctly.
The rest of the volume is about Rhea, her pupa stage and her potential metamorphosis into a potential messianic entity for an entire world of religious people who are at war. In a subtle nod to religious history one of the leaders of the divisive religious war is named Huss (John Huss, or Jan Hus, was a Czech priest in the early 1400's and founded Hussitism and was a key predecessor to the Protestant Reformation).
If that is the kind of thing that appeals to you- good prose, truly unique and imaginative stories and strange subtle images-then you are a fan of the Doom Patrol. If I lost you at the sentient transvestite street named Danny, then Doom Patrol is not going to appeal to you. The art is not great, but quite decent for the time and what it tries to accomplish. That is not the point of reading Doom Patrol. This is one of the oddest comics I've ever read. I do enjoy a unique outlook and I respect a well told story. Grant Morrison delivers in Doom Patrol.
