Doom patrol : crawling from the wreckage by Grant Morrison( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is this real or isn't it?" It's a simple question, but it isn't a simple world-- not anymore. Not for the members of the Doom Patrol, the World's Strangest Heroes. Originally conceived in the 1960s, The Doom Patrol was reborn in 1989, bursting out of the utterly unique imagination of writer Grant Morrison and heralding a new direction for American comics. Following that direction, the World's Strangest Heroes have left behind almost every vestige of normality. Though they are super-powered beings, and their foes are bent on world domination, all that is conventional ends there. Shunned as freaks and outcasts, and tempered by loss and insanity, the Doom Patrol faces threats mystifying in nature, corrupted beyond any sensible motives-- threats that must, at all costs, be defeated. --p.[4] of cover

The Mighty Thor by Walter Simonson by Walter Simonson( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few people have ever left their mark on one character quite the way Walter Simonson has. His work on the Mighty Thor swept the Norse God of Thunder to heights never before seen and rarely achieved in his wake. Spanning epic tales of heroism and treachery, love and war, Simonson's work is often considered the definitive Thor. From the majesty and mystery of fabled Asgard to the gritty streets of New York City, Thor was never the same. That is the mark of a true visionary. This first volume begins the collection of Simonson's epic run--completely remastered from the original artwork and newly colored by Steve Oliff!"--Page 4 of cover
