Rachel Pollack Doom Patrol

I think it’s time for DC Universe to post the Rachel Pollack run of Doom Patrol (post-Morrison, issues 64-87). First, Doom Patrol is an immensely popular show, so any related content would surely be welcome by fans.

Secondly, the series deals with a host of relevant issues, including trauma and gender identity. DP has always been about misfits, about bucking norms, and Pollack does so explicitly. I know that myself and other LGBT fans of the series would love see ourselves represented in the Legion of the Strange.



I agree. I want to collect all runs of doom patrol but DC has not even released Pollack’s run in a collection. There were going to a couple years of go but cancelled it. I really want to read about Coagula.


I don’t know if this helps but her run is now a available on Comixology Unlimited right now.


I betcha this run will indeed show its head as the DOOM PATROL episodes begin to drop, which would be terrific. It’s a fine way of whetting the appetite for one of comics’ most entertaining and increasingly relevant titles.

I’d surely love to read it! I’ll make sure to submit your request to the team. :blush:


I was so upset when I read they cancelled the planned release of Doom Patrol Vol 4 (the Rachael Pollack run) for all the reasons you mentioned.

I’d also like to see the vastly underrated Nancy Collins run of Swamp Thing in print.

I don’t see whyDC wouldn’t to want to showcase some of their more outstanding female talent!


it’s up on comixology for anyone with an unlimited account

Including it here is really necessary. It’s bad enough it’s not in print. Her run is as beloved as Morrison’s.

I never had a chance to read Morrison’s run as a kid. I remember thinking it looked like it was trying too hard. On DCU, I finally had a chance to read it. Honestly, it wasn’t that great. And yeah, I think I was right. It was trying too hard.

So, I’d love to see some other writers taking a stab at it.
