Doom Patrol and Rachel Pollack

Recommended Posts

I couldn't remember, nor be bothered to search for, the thread that had us all talking about Rachel Pollack's run on Doom Patrol (and Elizabeth Hand's Anima series), so I figured I'd stick this here.  Really interesting interview with Pollack about her Doom Patrol run and the editorial/critical reception of it at the time.  No big surprise that Axel Alonso taking over as editor when Lou Stathis died is what ultimately forced her out of Vertigo.

Interesting read. I didn't know she'd been fired from New Gods because John Byrne wanted that. That's a terrible shame as that one suited her a lot better than Doom patrol did...

Nice quote in there from Lou Stathis: "If Vertigo can't publish Rachel Pollack, what's it for?"

Milking The Sandman until its tits fell off, apparently.
