It launched with four series including "Doom Patrol", "Shade, The Changing Girl", "Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye", and "Mother Panic". Three of them written by Way himself.

Doom Patrol launched in September inspired by the spirit of Grant Morrison's legendary run on the series, along with other classic incarnations of the characters. Gerard Way wrote with art by Nick Derington who are putting their unique stamp on the world's strangest heroes taking on the universe's strangest villains.
Below are the two covers and first five pages of Doom Patrol #9 alongside details on the latest issue:
Official synopsis for Doom Patrol #9:
The secret of Terry None (maybe)! The return of old enemies (usually)! Casey eats S**t (again)! Strange babies (possibly)! Ungrateful cats (predictably)! Robotman punches stuff (of course)! Negative Man goes dark (potentially)! New life and anti-life (because)! All of this and none of it happens as reality begins to transform for the Doom Patrol. The stage is being set for the stage to be reset and you’re not going to want to miss the ambulance or you’ll never get to the theater on time.
