Gerard Way's "Young Animal" Returns This July

DC's "Young Animal" imprint returns this July with a new chapter of their flagship comic title "Doom Patrol" and two entirely new and unique stories that will captivate all "Young Animal" fans out there, that have been waiting for this announcement to come from DC for a year since it was last sighted.

DC's "Young Animal" made its debut in 2016 as a pop-up imprint of curated stories by Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) and after four regular series and three miniseries, it falls in hibernation up until now.

July 3rd marks the day of DOOM PATROL: WEIGHT OF THE WORLDS followed by COLLAPSER in July 17 and FAR SECTOR later this year.

As with all new comic series, new creative teams make their appearance with Mikey Way (MCR), Shaun Simon (Neverboy, Killjoys) and artist Ilias Kyriazis (G.I. Joe: First Strike) bring us COLLAPSER, and author N.K. Jemisin (The Broken Earth, Inheritance trilogies) making her comic book writing debut with FAR SECTOR.

As usual "Doom Patrol" creative team will consist of Nick Derington for Covers and a series of talented artists for interior illustrations such as James Harvey, Doc Shaner, Nick Pitarra, Becky Cloonan and more.

“We are thrilled to revitalize DOOM PATROL, and to present both COLLAPSER and FAR SECTOR, two books that push the medium of comics and their respective genres through uncharted territory. Readers can expect everything from high doses of cosmic weirdness and positivity, to deep examinations of anxiety and emotions while wielding immense power, to sci-fi explorations of authority and control and what it means to be a guardian while a world hangs in delicate balance. More fantastic comics outside the norm, as only DC’s Young Animal can do.”

The City has maintained peace for over 500 years by stripping its citizens of their ability to feel. As a result, violent crime is virtually unheard of, and murder is nonexistent.
But that’s all about to change.
This new series introduces a dizzying game of politics and philosophies as Jo discovers a brewing revolution in the City, aided and abetted by some of its most powerful citizens.
