This is not a comic book collection This is a Grant Morrison comic collection at its least drug-induced, although probably his most creative. First, you meet what remains of the Doom Patrol (who, though much like the X-Men in some ways is acually 3 months older), the perfect group of super-powered misfits, which has a nasty habit of killing off or jading most of its members. The origin of Rebis, a glowing, bandage-covered hermaphrodite with a self- conflicting personality, is pretty disturbing, but wait until you meet Crazy Jane. Pure, albeit twisted, genius. Then, the villains: The Scissormen, quasi- imaginary beings who speak in nonsense and cut things...out of reality Orqwith, City of Miracles, the city of the Scissormen, constructed of the bones of the dead of our world, a demented faerie-tale come alive Red Jack, a homicidal maniac with a god complex and a vast, labirynthine house where he is one and in the background, the mysterious 'Mr. Nobody', a key player in volume 2. Creepy, funny, clever, and truly original. This isn't about a superhero team This is when it's so screwed up, Superman calls for backup: A depressed brain in a machine body, an apathetic androgyne with a semi- split personalty, a woman with 64 personalities and almost as many powers, a crippled supergenius, a retired superhero (medical support), and an ape- faced girl whose imaginary friends aren't so imaginary...
