Dan McDaid has stepped in to finish the delayed Doom Patrol #12.
Newsarama has confirmed with DC that McDaid will be working from layouts by original series artist Nick Derington, who is currently working on a Batman Giant serial with Brian Michael Bendis.
With this, DC has put Doom Patrol #12 back on the schedule for an October 31 release.
Here is the updated solicitation, along with a new cover by Derington:
DOOM PATROL #12
Written by GERARD WAY
Art by NICK DERINGTON and DAN MCDAID
Cover by NICK DERINGTON
Variant cover by BEEPLE
Something normal is happening to the Doom Patrol. Which means not weird, since their own normal is very weird. There are mysterious forces at work, unseen hands rewriting history, and the change is so gradual, the team doesn’t even necessarily see how much they are changing.
