(SPOILERS for Doom Patrol #9.)
Having recently praised Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol, let me hasten to add the the current Doom Patrol series by Keith Giffen and Matthew Clark has also been a dream come true for your humble host. I am a sucker for the DP in general, as well as a Giffen fan, so it's almost as if this book was custom made for me specifically. In Doom Patrol #9, it looks like we get some surprisising new additions to the supporting cast, one of which comes as something of an ambush...
I was afraid that Once-Crazy-Now-Sane Jane and Danny the Brick might be "Doomed" after they re-appeared in DP #7 and 8, pursued by the Gentrifiers, who had bulldozed and built over the other-dimensional Planet Danny. It looks like they'll be settling on Oolong island though, and further, it looks like Ambush Bug will be moving into a rebuilt Danny the Bungalow as well! Why? Read the button, fanboy!
This should be a lot of fun, returning the Bug to his roots as a pest within the DC Universe, after a couple of decades of being consigned to only his own, increasingly bizarre books. Longtime fans will recall that the Bug made his debut as a manic, pesky villain against Superman and the Doom Patrol in DC Comics Presents #52, so this is like coming home for him after that recent misfire of a mini-series. Indeed, the Bug was doing Deadpool's "annoy serious heroes" shtick long before Deadpool was a gleam in Rob Liefeld's beady little eye.
So let me Ambush you one more time, and Bug you to buy Doom Patrol!
