doom patrol volume five (5): magic bus by grant morrison & brian bolland.

hey, does doom patrol get the attention it deserves? unlike the invisibles, which, i'm sorry, is a little too masturbatory to count in the end run, the doom patrol comics have a consistent narrative. in other words, there is something rubber to stretch. the exploration of the negative man is, for instance, an important work that figures in the past of the character & impacts the future. part of the fun of the serial medium is that you don't own the characters-- they own you. a lot of the craziness is pure fun, & a lot is pure drama, but the character piece on rebis is far & away the most stand out.
