. . .and, because it's just not nice to have a post with no images, here's a few I found from the Interwebnets AND a couple very special bonus images with some super-great Richard Case art! 
(Also, Mr. Case sells prints at his con appearances. I'll post up a sliver of the one Darrin and Ruth Sutherland were so kind to procure for me. 

Looseleaf Who's Who for the WHOLE PATROL!  




Internet find #1

Internet find #2

Internet find #3

Shameless endorsement:
Nick Derington is doing the covers for Mister Miracle, a twelve-issue maxiseries from DC written by Tom King with art from Mitch Gerads. Buy it. It's good. Mister Miracle #1 hits Wednesday, 9 August 2017. Until you get it, here's the cover from #4, courtesy of Derington's Twitter feed. 


And, finally: Question of the Week:
Who is your favorite Doom Patroller from the current Way-Derington Young Animal volume?

HUZZAH! 

A new one - or the first of a new two episodes of Waiting for Doom. As Paul and Mike describe it on their Podbean
Despite recent tech issues (what, again?!) Mike and Paul return with more DOOM PATROL goodness! Please note that we're not entirely tech-issue-free, as the Technology Gods decided to export this episode rather quietly, so when we say 'Yo, turn it up!', we mean it...anyway, LET'S GET PATROLLING!
Down on Derington Way - 9:50
Doom Clock - 17:17
Doomsplaining - 20:43 -We continue our coverage of the Violet Valley era Patrol, as we look at issues 72 and 73 of Doom Patrol volume 2, from Rachel Pollack and Linda Medley!

I'm going to go lightly on the text and captions, but here's the cover from Doom Patrol (volume 2) #72. 

Doom Patrol (v2) #72










. . .and #73

Not a Tom Taggart cover, but a Bob Fingerman piece. 









. . .not creepy at all.

Here's the solicit for Doom Patrol (v6) #10 that the gents mention. As well as a larger version of the cover.

Episode 98: Butterflies and Mercury; Mutants and Space Arks OR Step Into the Spotlight

HUZZAH! 
Another new episode of Waiting for Doom means another new post on My Greatest Adventure! Actually, another new post on My Greatest Adventure means you won't have to wait long for yet another new Waiting for Doom episode, because, y'know, I'm usually a fair bit behind on these things. 

Anyway, here's what the Podbean tells us: 
At last, Mike and Paul are BACK with a new episode of WFD, featuring everyones favourite team of superpowered misfits and outcasts, the DOOM PATROL! [Checks show notes] Wait, what? Oh. Um. Well, look, let's just be glad the show is back, shall we? LET'S GET PATROLLING!

Doomsplaining - 15:55 -This week we look at some comics *related* to the Doom Patrol legacy, and discuss issues 9 and 11 of Teen Titans Spotlight, focussing on Beast Boy / Changeling, and the Brotherhood of Evil!
Mailbag O Doom - 44:42 - We read your responses to the question, "What Doom Patrol character (from any run) would you like to see in a spotlight issue?"

So let's have a looksee at what the images just might be. 
Paris Cullins's cover for the Gar Logan special.



KLANNG!

Mister All the Elements




Not so much the Brotherhood of Evil spotlight!

Everywhere he looks, Reading Hix sees gorillas wearing underwear! 

Tintin and not-quite-a-gorilla. 
Previously on He-Man and Masters of the Universe. . . 





As for next time, here's the Question of the Week
Who is your favorite anthropomorphic character? I was going to say "The Tick" to be a smart alec, but I realized that's a real Aaron Long type of answer. My answer can be found right here: 
Yup. Pig-Iron. 

And, finally, Down on Derington by Way of Bonvillain. 
Nick Derington wished everyone a Happy Independence Day! 

. . .and was feeling webheaded. . .

. . .and is now doing the alternate covers for the current Doom Patrol volume. 
In lieu of aggregating EVERYTHING Tamra Bonvillain has been working on,
here's a pinned tweet to give you a notion of how critical color truly is.
