Curating this book, it was important to me to have something for everyone, so while we do feature a few heterosexual couples, they do not dominate our book. We really aim to have stories everyone can relate to and I think we’ve really made something beautiful here.

That being said,

We need to support women, poc women, lgbt+women, all women writing and creating things, and we need to support stories and art featuring POC and LGBT characters as real people… or fantastic beings who have more on their mind than just coming out. Crows on Heartstrings has the multi-faceted characters we need and deserve.

Supporting us means telling mainstream publishing that POC and LGBT characters DO SELL.

With this book, you can do all of these things!

A comiXologist Recommends

Doom Patrol #1

Written by Gerard Way

Art by Nick Derington

Those familiar with the writing of Gerard Way and find his choices delightful will find his incarnation of the Doom Patrol fascinating and exceeding all expectations.  Issue #1 of Doom Patrol carries all the questions left to us from previous incarnations (sort of), the resurfacing of old mainstay characters (Robotman, heck yeah), and the cerebral sarcasm that comes with tying cosmic catastrophe with everyday life (The Gyro).  

Doom Patrol introduces the reader to a Casey Brinke. Casey drives an ambulance and just wants to do good things.  Casey explains casually her fascinating youth in day-to-day life as if it doesn’t come off like the coolest series of adventures a little kid could have had. Most importantly, Casey wants to do good things because her mother told her to do good things, right before her mother flew off into the sun.

Quick food-related segues and analogies lead to perhaps my most favorite reintroduction to a character ever.  I really want to get into it and chew on the meat a bit. I wouldn’t know where to safely start or safely stop so I will not “chew” or “get into” anything. This single issue is so well-constructed and nuanced that the segues and scene changes fall like dominoes, one inciting incident after another, gag after action-packed gag triggers another outrageous moment so if I started somewhere I would have to spoil the next moment to adequately geek-out.

Nick Derington’s art reminds me of Darwyn Cooke’s character acting with Mike Allred’s line quality and pacing.  It is great fun if you aren’t familiar with his other work, and it is a real treat to see him under the new Young Animal banner.

With such expert writing paired with charming art by Nick Derington the Doom Patrol are going to be getting mixed up in some weird weirdness.
