Gerard Way took to Instagram this week to celebrate the release of Doom Patrol #12 which came out this week and once had a solicit date of December 2017. In July, artist Dan McDaid joined the issue in order to get it finished.
With the release of issue 12, it'll have taken Way and his ever growing team of artists 25 months to release the complete arc. Way also revealed that he's working on the next arc of the series, thankfully with a co-writer this time in Jeremy Lambert, so maybe the next arc will come out semi-regularly. Probably not.

DOOM PATROL ISSUE 12— In Stores now!⠀ ⠀ We’ve got a Halloween double-header today. Doom Patrol returns, this time with a very special issue. This issue centers around everybody’s favorite family from Doom Patrol, the Reynolds. And we learn more about Lucius and the power inside of him. We also see what they were up to right as Milk Wars was about to kick off. Hope you enjoy, we had a lot of fun with this one and I’d like to officially welcome @jeremyfranklambert to the fold! Making a special guest appearance, @danmcdaidart handled the gorgeous interiors, Tamra Bonvillain handled her always gorgeous colors (love the use of magenta in this issue), Todd Klein took care of the fantastical lettering, and @nickderington not only provided the standard “module” cover, but plotted and helped write some of the issue. Variant by Dan McDaid. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ While we close the chapter on the first big 12 issue arc of Doom Patrol. We will return with an all new vibe. Working away on it as we speak. Stay tuned. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #thefamilythatslaystogether #intothedaemonscape #doompatrol #younganimal #dcyounganimal #dccomics #dungeonsanddragons #GaryGygax #penandpaperrpgs #rpgs #DnD @dccomics
