Get ready to dive into comic books!

Seriously, we take a deep dive into Doom Patrol Weight of the Worlds #5. In the literal sense. Imagine being a fan of a comic book or a cartoon show and being transformed into that world? I bet this used to happen to you all the time when you were a kid. This is what happens in this fifth issue as a super fan gets to be in the world that he loves so much. He especially gets to be meet his favorite character – Cliff Steele aka Robotman. Considering he’s my favorite as well, I couldn’t stop myself from being totally enthralled in the story.

The thing about Doom Patrol, is that as whacky as it is, it tells a lot of heart. Especially through a character like Robotman. While this is a robot and therefore, you would think; should not have the feelings that he does, he ends up being the most human out of everyone. So, we feel his feelings when he comes face to face with the reality that someone that he lost, a death that affected him greatly; is back and doesn’t remember him. Our kid, on the outside, looking in; is our eyes, witnessing and knowing how much this will dishearten Cliff.

Not only is the story fun and tragic, but the artwork is very beautiful and plays on the “living inside the comic book” storyline it’s giving us in the fifth issue. Overall, I really enjoyed Doom Patrol Weight of the Worlds #5. I would suggest to any to pick up this series and enjoy, because while these characters are not Wonder woman, Superman, or Green Lantern, they tell really interesting stories that have deeper meanings than you would think.
