Issue #2 begins with Larry Trainer flying into a radioactive field with his Russian nesting doll co-pilot before cutting to him in a crowded square where he incites a fight between two strangers but ends up on the receiving end of their anger.

Casey Brinke is standing in her bathroom pulling her sore tooth out which has a message rolled up in it like a dental fortune cookie. Her flatmate is making breakfast after being up all night putting the smashed robot back together -minus the brain which the cat wont let her near- while outside her partner is waiting with the ambulance ready to work. Their first call is to a prone Larry Trainer who they coax into the ambulance but before they can get to the hospital they hear a call over the radio of a disturbance at cCasey’shouse.

While she has been out the newly reconstructed robot has had guests who tied him up and asked about Casey. He bested them but ends up thrown out of the building via the wall. The fight continues outside and has he dispatches the last one Casey pulls up in her ambulance.

Turns out the robot (Cliff) and Larry know each other and as they reunite Casey and her partner are called back into work and suspended without pay. As they part ways Casey climbs into the back of the ambulance because the radio is speaking to her and before she knows it the ambulance falls away and she is in a cabaret Hall with a muscleman and a doorway to Dannyland.

Anything can and will happen in Doom Patrol and nothing you will expect! Casey obviously has something big away to happen to her and I cant wait to see how it ties in with Larry and cliff

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them.

A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
